Futures & Options Expo

2 November 2021 - 4 November 2021 • 7:30 AM - 2:00 PM CST

We’re bringing you an Expo like no other this November. Gone are the days of sessions only happening in the ballrooms, only some people allowed at the receptions and only the trade show occurring on the lower floor. We’re creating a new Expo for all attendees where you flow between compelling panels that build your knowledge, product demos and pitches that deliver solutions and networking opportunities that celebrate human connections (safely). 
Whether you’re a trader chasing the latest data and trends affecting the markets or a back office manager seeking ways to increase operational efficiency or a business strategist looking for what’s next, you’ll find your answers at Expo. From sessions featuring exchange leaders, industry experts and key regulators to the exhibit hall that brings opportunities and solutions to the forefront, you’ll get everything you need at Expo. Take this leap with us, come to Expo, and make business happen.
Join us 2-4 November at the Hilton Chicago.
