With just a few weeks until the iFXEXPO kicks off in Cyprus, the countdown is officially on. And as media partners, we couldn’t be more excited.

But now real-life networking opportunities are back, with the iFXEXPO offering like-minded individuals the chance to grow their professional network in style. This event is attended and trusted by some of the most prominent firms out there today from retail and institutional brokers and technology and liquidity providers to payment service providers, banks affiliates, IBs, regulators, compliance teams and crypto/blockchain brands. So come along and spread those social butterfly wings to make the connections you need.
An Action-Packed Agenda
The iFXEXPO is the most eagerly anticipated event of the year within the finance and fintech sector – and it’s easy to see why. Attendees can expect an action-packed agenda, with the Official iFX EXPO International Welcome Party 2021 kicking off the action on day one. This will allow guests to chat and mingle while soaking up the laid back Mediterranean vibe.
5 October Highlights
The expo then officially starts on 5 October with doors opening at 9am. There will be a host of talks and speaker panels throughout the day. Talk titles include:

This will all be wrapped up by the Official iFXEXPO International Night Party 2021 which will allow you to network and dance. This will take place at the beachfront Breeze Summer Club from 21:00 to late and is guaranteed to include a few unexpected treats and surprises.
6 October Highlights
The expo will then resume again at 10am the following morning, despite a few fuzzy heads from the night before. One of the highlights of the day for the Contentworks team will be our very own Creative Director, Charlotte Day, joining the expo’s last speaker panel to discuss the ‘Best Ways to Market Your Business in 2022.’ Charlotte will join Google’s Panos Lamprakos and TIOmarkets Helen Astaniou among others on a panel that will be moderated by John Lewis – co-founder of the iFX EXPO and other well-known brands.
As the world continues to feel the ripple effects of the pandemic, this panel of leading marketing experts will discuss important topics such as:
- Staying abreast of technology and regulatory changes
- Best practices for online digital marketing & offline traditional marketing
- Biggest marketing trends VS what should remain history
- Introducing Brokers vs Affiliates in a post-pandemic world
- Fintech for good, CSR and less traditional marketing on the rise
This panel is perfect for forward-thinking marketers looking for cutting-edge techniques to use in 2022. If you’ve any questions, have them ready to ask on the day and the panel will be waiting and willing to answer them as best they can.

A Beautiful Island to Explore
Of course, part of the fun is exploring the expo location, especially if you’ve travelled from abroad. And Cyprus won’t disappoint. As a sunshine island well-known for it’s beautiful beaches and mouth-watering cuisine, Cyprus is the perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy a kebab or two. A trip to the Troodos mountains might also feature on your itinerary or what about a diving session? The Zenobia in Larnaca is one of the world’s most famous shipwrecks attracting an abundance of wildlife such as sea turtles and seabass. You might also decide to stay around the expo hotel. This looks out across the Med and invites you to sit back and soak up the sun while surrounded by golden beaches.
