iFX EXPO Dubai – Event Experience Review
Summing up my personal experience at iFX EXPO Dubai, it was nothing short of perfect. Right from the venue selection to the well-organized summit schedule, security procedures, and food, and beverages availability, everything was on point.
The main reason for attending such a gala conference was obviously because of the expert sessions and the chance to meet new people from multiple different industries. The speaker sessions were very insightful and provided relevant information and helpful tips that should be considered when it comes to trading & business. I have gained a newfound perspective on how technologies are influencing the future of industries and trading space in general and what can we do to leverage that kind of information in our favor.
A piece of unsolicited advice I’d like to give is that everyone should once in their life attend the iFX EXPO summit. The event is everything more than you could ever fathom. Not to mention the exceptionally thrilling welcome and after-event parties at the prime spots of one of the most extravagant and finest cities in the world.
