Inside ETFs, the world’s largest ETF conference, kicks off Sunday with ETF University, an in-depth, five-hour refresher course on how ETFs work and the biggest risks and opportunities ETFs investors face.

Bill Bachrach of Values Based Financial Planning will close off the first day with a keynote address about one of the biggest challenges advisors face today: how to add real value for clients in an era of fintech innovation and increasing competition from robo advisors.

The conference, which takes place Sunday through Wednesday in Hollywood, Florida, is expected to host more than 2,000 advisors, investors and ETF industry folks from around the globe.

As ETF.com’s Matt Hougan wrote, “With a record number of ETFs in the pipeline, and new innovations like exchange-traded managed funds coming soon, it’s hard to keep up. Inside ETFs is a one-stop shop for doing just that.”

Here’s what to expect from the days ahead:

Get the latest insight on the market from some notable pundits, including Jeffrey Gundlach, Jeremy Siegel, Liz Ann Sonders, Josh Brown, John Mauldin, Marc Faber, Dennis Gartman, Richard Bernstein and Mark Yusko.

Take a closer look at the next big risks in ETFs. There are currently some big issues circling in the ETF space, including liquidity concerns, fixed-income ETFs, regulatory overreach and more. At the conference, industry experts will tackle these head-on and figure out what’s real, what’s fake and what everyone should be worried about.

Get a glimpse into the future of the industry. The theme of this year’s conference is “What’s Next?” and there will be significant time spent looking ahead at what’s coming for ETFs and advisors in the market.
