Why You Should Attend

[Marcus Evans Live+] Benchmark Rates Reform

It's time to educate financial institutions on the importance of commencing their implementation of their transition now instead of waiting till the last few months of 2021 deadline, as there will be a lot of work between now and when the RFRs are officially adopted.

Financial institutions will need to assess how their funding and hedging will be affected, and most importantly, how to overcome these challenges. Take part in one of the most vital transitions in the global financial market, and explore the implications and challenges of the IBOR transition and how to prepare yourself for the transition.

Exclusive Half Day Workshop: Active Execution of Transitioning into Risk Free Rates, designed to assist participants generate and implement transparent and robust planning from IBOR into RFRs.

[Introducing Marcus Evans Live+]

Our passion is connecting people through our events; we firmly believe a virtual event experience should be no different. Our Live + content platform will of course give you access to all the presentations as they happen and beyond, but we have to do much better than that! Our focus is on unlocking the incredible knowledge, experience and value within our entire event delegation, not just our world class speakers. That is why our Live + platform is loaded with features to ensure you are able to fully participate.

-         Interactive interface

Our innovative interactive interface puts you in full control of your event experience, giving you access to the functions you need and putting you in control of the your content and interactions throughout the event. Run chat with conference sub-groups or specific delegates, post questions, take part in polls and much more.

-         Attendee Engagement

Good online events don't just happen, they need to beprepared. We understand this and have designed an event that seeks out attendee engagement, take advantage of interactive live polling and Q&A throughout the event to understand where you sit on the key issues compared to your peers. All insights from these interactions will be posted to your content hub post event for you to refer back to.

-         Chat rooms, open and closed breakout rooms

It's not all about you, well kind of! But we want to share your insights and experience with others. Our online in event chat rooms, open and closed breakout rooms and meeting scheduler means you don't have to miss out on those connections that have always made our events so valuable. Meet who you want, when you want. Virtual, flexible, efficient.

-         Content hub

Attending an event should be much more than the content delivered onsite, it needs to last and needs to continue to add value to you and your business once the show is over. Our content hub is where you go to download event presentations and additional content but also a place to share content with fellow delegates and reconnect post event as you wish.
