The 14th Edition of the Middle East and North Africa Forex and Investment Exhibition has achieved remarkable success in the midst of the recovery of the foreign exchange and online trading markets, following the January announcement of the Swiss Central Bank to remove the cap on the Swiss franc’s euro exchange rate.
The exhibition was organized by Arabcom Group last month at The Westin Mina Seyahi Hotel in Dubai with the participation of leading trading and brokerage firms, international banks, C-level executives, senior economists and investors. It also included a specialized conference and interactive panel discussions led by high-caliber experts and analysts, while the number of visitors and participants exceeded all expectations this year.
Arabcom Group Founder and President Mrs. Katia Tayar stressed in her keynote speech the importance of the timing of the expo following the Swiss Central Bank January announcement, which inflicted enormous losses to global brokerage firms, banks and investors. She said that “the exhibition aims at shedding the light on the recovery of the trading sector and confirming its ability to overcome the crisis within a short time.”
In light of its commitment to raise awareness on the risks of random online trading through dealing with licensed and registered brokerage firms, Arabcom Group honored exhibitors and sponsors for their outstanding work during an award gala ceremony based on the public vote.
