A roaring return for our Pan Asia event – Singapore AsiaFIC May 2023

We could not have wished for a better return to our pan-Asian event. AsiaFIC 2023 taking place May 3 & 4 in Singapore was buoyed by a superb show of faith from our sponsors. Their support enabled us to create a two-day event which attracted nearly 300 registrations. Delegates attended in droves, including a standing-room-only start with the Engineering Stream and concluding with the second of two receptions with spectacular views over Singapore. The program dug deep into a diverse set of market data topics and enabled our APAC community to do some serious networking, including with some delegates who travelled from other regions to attend. Building on the success of AsiaFIC, FISD looks to provide many more member activities in APAC in the months and years to come.
