In addition, during the forum the international exchanges will carry out in-depth dialogs and exchanges on the cooperation and development of the market.
The forum will limit the number of attendees around 300, with one-third of participants from abroad, including the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange Group, Nasdaq - OMX Group, Euronext, Knight Capital Group (KCG), Optiver and other institutions, which will send high-profile delegations to make the forum one of its kind for the domestic derivatives industry at the highest international and professional level.
