The event took place on October 17, 2018 featuring two panels of four Asian exchanges each.

We also had two new exchanges that joined us this year: Korea Exchange and Taiwan Futures Exchange.

There were around 200 attendees which is our record year so far.
We started the day with a networking breakfast. We also had a surprise tiger mascot that broke the ice.
PhillipCapital Co-CEO Lynette Lim opened the symposium by talking about the Asian Growth story and suggested how we have to shift our attitude of “you win I lose” towards each other to a more collaborative yin-yang model. David Klotz, PhillipCapital Vice President, Head of Business Development, was the moderator of the two panels and topics ranged from Brexit impact to Asian markets, to liquidity impact and cryptocurrency impact. Great questions were asked by the audience via sli.do polling.
The overall feedback from attendees was very positive and PhillipCapital is thankful for all their exchange panelist, cosponsors and attendees for helping to make the Trading Asia Symposium bigger and better every year. We look forward to bringing back the event next year.
