Though much has been going on behind the scenes, it has been some time since FISD has communicated about the World Financial Information Conference, the preeminent global conference for the financial information community. We’re delighted to report that WFIC will take place in person, October 16-19 in Prague, with a familiar mix of panels, presentations and the best networking in the business. FISD’s traditional partners, Deutsche Boerse as Platinum Sponsor, and LSEG-Refinitiv as Host Sponsor, have returned, as have many other familiar names, and some new ones too.
Nearly all of the upper-level sponsorships are sold out, but as we have recently created additional exhibition space, we can now accommodate a limited number of Bronze level sponsors with a booth. We can also create sponsorships substituting a booth for a branded item. Please contact Tracey Shumpert if you would like more information.
Here are a few more important updates about WFIC:
- Registration will open in late March. As previously announced, long-term FISD members will benefit from discounted rates up until the event.
Registration Category Rate USD
Long-term Member Discount $1,500
Regular Member Discount $2,200
Member Consumers $600
- WFIC will continue to be a member-only event. Non-members wishing to join FISD can contact Tracey Shumpert for more information.
- WFIC will take place at the Hilton Prague, and the discounted room block is open.
- The WFIC Program Working Group has convened to create the timely and relevant educational content that has come to be synonymous with WFIC. If you would like to suggest ideas for the working group to consider, please share them with Tracey Shumpert.
We’ll be making many more announcements about WFIC during the coming months, so please keep us flagged as a safe-sender and let us know how we can make this your best WFIC ever.
