Experience WFIC



Note what past delegates have said about WFIC:


Recent News


The World Financial Information Conference (“WFIC”) is fortunate to receive most of its support from returning satisfied sponsors. For this reason, we’re especially pleased to announce that Refinitiv has already returned as Host Sponsor, so delegates can look forward to another lively Sunday night welcome reception, with more announcements coming soon.

WFIC will take place in Prague, October 16-19, 2022. Once again, a magical mix of over 500 senior representatives from end user firms, content creators and service providers from around the globe will convene to create the best networking opportunity in the financial information business.

Sponsorships typically sell out well in advance of the event date and we expect this to be especially true this cycle, as exhibitor inventory is limited. In addition, 2019 sponsors receive first priority to renew their options until September 30th. For this reason, we suggest past sponsors to contact FISD now to reserve their packages, and for potential new sponsors to indicate their interests so that we can prioritize them.

Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to sponsor WFIC 2022.

Best regards,

Tracey Shumpert, FIA

Vice President of Membership and Programs
