First ShowFx World Conference in Bratislava unites trading pros and amateurs

April 27th, 2016

On a regular Saturday, April 16, the Crowne Plaza Hotel, located in the heart of Bratislava across from the Presidential palace, hosted a very special event for the world of finance and trading. For the very first time, Slovak traders and investors gathered for the ShowFx World international conference organized in the capital of Slovakia.

What motivated these people to invest their time and energy and come to the conference hall of the Crowne Plaza Bratislava on such a bright, sunny day instead of chilling out or, say, visiting their grandmas? If you had been there, you would have known the answer. The quest for knowledge never ends, as they say. And in this quest, there is nothing quite like learning from the best as it allows you to stay one step ahead of the game. Intensive workshops from professional market analysts and experts, seminars on a variety of financial topics, and lively discussions, all packed into a single conference day, comprised an excellent mix of knowledge, expertise and fresh ideas. Top-level speakers from Slovakia, Serbia, Poland, the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom, including Anton Bittner, Josef Lukac, Jaroslav Tupy and Charlie Burton, delivered fascinating lectures to the audience. InstaForex analysts Petar Jacimovich and Sebastian Seliga shared their profit-making ideas and secrets behind successful trading with the listeners. All in all, the experts tackled a broad spectrum of topics: trading psychology, fundamental analysis for Forex beginners, volume trading, investing in precious metals, trading CFDs and futures, and many more crucial issues.

While workshops and speeches undoubtedly give your brain a good workout, they do not fill your belly. The conference organizers took care of that one. The coffee breaks between lectures did not only give the conference guests time to enjoy delicious treats and a fresh dose of caffeine providing them with new drive and extra energy but also offered a chance to socialize and get to know other people. One should never underestimate the power of networking in any professional career. The opportunity for informal mingling with fellow traders who share the same values and goals was the ‘secret’ component of the event’s success that made it so worthwhile and fun. The conference therefore gave both trading pros and newbies a great chance to “sharpen the saw”, improve their skills and see things from a new perspective.

In addition to knowledge – the most valuable intangible asset, the conference attendees could also obtain more “down-to-earth”, material gifts. Each guest could try their luck at prize draws and raffles. Money certificates with $500 and $1,000 bonuses to trading accounts along with brand-new devices including an iPad air and a Samsung smartphone were distributed among the lucky winners.

The InstaForex stand was one of the most popular spots on the conference ground all day, where every visitor could get up to $75 of money bonuses as well as a gift bag from our team.

It has been a truly enjoyable event and we are very grateful to everyone who came along to join us in Bratislava.
