  • FIA Chicago Expo a Success!
    FIA held its 28th Annual Futures and Options Expo in Chicago Oct. 30 to Nov. 1. Despite the devastation caused by extreme weather conditions on the East Coast, nearly 3,800 people attended the three-day event, which featured keynote speeches from CFTC Chairman Gary Gensler and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel as well as more than two dozen panel discussions on a wide range of topics. “FIA deeply appreciates the extraordinary efforts made by participants from the greater New York metropolitan area to come to Chicago,” FIA President Walt Lukken said. “I also thank our Chicago and international colleagues who stepped up as speakers to replace those unable to travel.” The event concluded with a gala dinner, the FIA Futures Cares Great Chicago SteakOut, which raised more than $360,000 for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. To date, through Futures Cares, the industry has raised more than $1.8 million for this cause. View video clips from Expo Today LIVE! LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
