The Trading Show Chicago is the only event that combines quant, automated trading, exchange technology, big data and derivatives. If you want to do business with the CTO of an automated trading firm, the head of quantitative analysis of a leading bank, the head of global exchange, the global head of derivatives from a leading fund manager or the Chief Data Officer of a financial institution, you cannot miss this event.
