ETF.com’s annual conference, Inside ETFs Europe, is just around the corner – less than three weeks away – and we’re tremendously excited to see registrations flying through the door at record levels.
With nearly 500 attendees already registered, and over 600 expected, and with an outstanding agenda and line-up of keynotes and cocktail parties, this promises to be the biggest and the best Inside ETFs Europe conference ever.
With my own excitement building for the event, I thought it would be good to enjoy the anticipation and share with you the top five reasons why you should attend this year’s event, and why I am personally excited to head to Amsterdam next month.
Number 5: Networking
The entire European ETF industry will be at your fingertips. Because we’ve built the largest ETF event in Europe, we’re able to have senior management across the ETP industry from the region and overseas all in one place at the same time, a rare feat in this industry.
And whether it’s catching up with old friends, or making new ones, hearing about new products on the horizon or talking about wonky index methodologies, it feels like coming home every year.
Number 4: Keynote speakers
The amazing keynote and other speakers this year are exceptionally good. I always look forward to the keynotes, but we will find it hard to top 2015 with Dutch football icon Ruud Gullit, along with a highly informed and entertaining group including industry veterans Rob Arnott and Jeremy Siegel as well as rogue trader Nick Leeson, leading economist Pippa Malmgren and Jonathan Stein, CEO of U.S. robo-adviser firm Betterment.
