Make the most of your IDX visit with Eurex

The annual IDX conference will be held on 4-5 June at the Brewery in London. We, Eurex team, are looking forward to meeting you there! We would like to draw your attention to some of the events we’re organizing, making sure you get the most out of your visit.

1.    A Taste of IDX with Eurex Board Members

Day 1 - 4 June 2019, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. - Eurex Booth # 7 & 8
Join us to celebrate the end of the first day by sharing a refreshing drink with the Eurex Executive Board Members. We’ll have some great beers and wines ready plus some snacks of course. Our board members will be present and at 4:00 p.m. we’ll draw from the business cards we received to give away a magnum bottle of champagne. Do make sure to have put your card in ahead of time! 

2.    Eurex Summer Garden Party 

Day 1 - 4 June 2019, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. - The Brewery Courtyard 
An IDX tradition! The true closure of the first day has always been the evening reception. A can’t-miss for all participants. Eurex Exchange and Eurex Clearing are the sponsors of the event and the motto this year is: “Eurex Summer Garden Party.” Join us at the Courtyard to relax, network and discuss the latest developments. 
3.    The Eurex Debates

Day 2 - 5 June 2019, 1:45 - 2:45 p.m. - Queen Vault room 

Three roundtables, three different beers, three topics. All in an hour.
Join us for thought-provoking and controversial roundtable discussions!  Let’s take a different approach and play devil’s advocate on some of the common beliefs and benefits on well-known topics such as ESG, IBOR reform and market structure.
Do ESG futures truly help to lower cost of trading? Will the new Risk-Free Rates change anything? How can market structure make trading fair? Each roundtable includes experts from Eurex, the sell and buy side plus a senior industry expert who will engage with the audience on and around their table on the above-mentioned topics.
