One of Asia's largest one-day trading events and now in its 11th year, the Asia Pacific Trading Summit is produced by FIX Trading Community, the non-profit, industry-driven standards body at the heart of the global trading community. The summit has continued to grow in scale and stature since its inauguration in 2009. Created by a dedicated team of industry practitioners, including senior representatives from some of the region's leading firms, this conference will offer an interactive program that truly addresses market needs, providing impartial, high quality content.

This year's summit takes a forward-looking approach and will look at the critical changes of the industry including the evolving exchange landscape, changing buy-side and sell-side business models, the growing use of FIX in the post-trade environment, a regulator's view on HFT and Dark Pools, Algo trading trends and a Buy-side TCA case study, plus much, much more!

This "must attend" full-day event has been created, for both traders and technologists, to provide a platform for the regional trading community to come together under one roof to explore the hottest issues, challenges, and opportunities that will impact the market participants in the region.

Through a series of presentations and panel sessions this one day event, closing with the highly popular networking cocktail reception, will offer an invaluable and informative experience for buy-side, sell-side, exchange/ECN, vendor and regulators delegates. By visiting the booths of leading brokers, trading platforms and technology providers featured within the exhibit zone, delegates can gain a stronger understanding of the latest developments and offerings as well as having the opportunities to win some great lucky draw prizes.
