City Week is now firmly established as the premier international event of its kind. City Week 2016 will build on the success of the 2015 event, which attracted over 700 delegates from 50 countries. It will consist of two days of cutting-edge conferences, seminars and networking opportunities, with an optional third day of one-to-one off-site meetings, which will be facilitated by sophisticated networking technology on the event app.

The City Week 2016 agenda will cover key topics affecting financial markets, such as: monetary policy and the global economy; regulation; ‘greening’ the financial system; and where growth is going to come from.
