The FIX Trading Community™ Australia FIX Conference has already been established as the leading electronic trading event in Australia where industry peers and colleagues who all work, compete and face the same challenges come together to discuss the most pressing issues of the industry.

This year's annual event will be attended by over 400 industry participants. 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. The event will also feature an exhibition zone for FIX Trading Community members to showcase their latest technology solutions. The event will address both business and technical issues of electronic trading in Australia through a series of presentations and lively panel discussions and is designed for both traders and technologists.

Building on FIX Trading Community’s unrivalled knowledge of the trading issues impacting this region, the dedicated industry team is creating an event that not only focuses on the current issues, but also those that will impact the industry for years to come. Adhering to the spirit of "Created by the industry, for the industry", 100% of the structure and content of FIX Trading Community events are shaped and delivered by senior representatives of regulatory body, buy-side, sell-side or technology firms active in the region.
