Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Muscat, Oman


The Muscat Securities Market is proud to be the Host of the 2018 World Exchange Congress. 

The World Exchange Congress is unofficially the biggest annual meeting for CEOs and senior executives of the world’s trading venues. Each year, at a different location around the world we are joined by around 300 C-level and executive representatives from Stock, FX, Futures, Commodity and Energy Exchanges as well as Clearing Houses, Investment Banks and Regulators.

For the last 12 years the event has visited London, Madrid, Monaco, Istanbul, Barcelona, Doha, Dubai and most recently Budapest in 2017. For 2018, the event will be coming to Muscat, Oman on the 27th - 28th February 2018.

The World Exchange Congress is unique in its ability to attract C-level representation from all different sizes of exchanges around the world, from tier one to frontier. In 2018 and in response to demand, participation will be expanding to include representatives at exchanges responsible for Technology, Cyber Security, Innovation and Risk. Our 90-strong speaker faculty will be discussing all aspects of the challenges facing the exchange community today, from global political developments to integrating new technologies such as blockchain and the world of RegTech.

Sporting events are no longer the most preferred target for terrorists, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Outdoor events, conferences, festivals, and other events featuring public figures are all vulnerable. And with over a thousand different-level attacks since 2015, it’s no surprise that safety and security are among the top concerns for event professionals.
