FORMATS

Exchange has heard you loud and clear. No one attends conferences to be spoken at; they want to engage, learn and be part of the conversation. At Exchange, we believe education is the key to investing. We strive to empower our attendees with actionable insights and a deeper understanding of how ETFs can be used to help clients be better invested. 

To help our attendees make the most of their time with us, we have redefined what conference content can and should be. Our new formats allow attendees to have choices in the content they attend, create unique settings for learning and allow them to be part of the conversation. 

GLIMMER STAGE

Reminiscent of the more traditional conference stage, the Glimmer stage is our large-scale stage production, fit for hosting hard-hitting debates, out-of-the-box and insightful keynotes, and outside-the-industry trendy talks that are driving our industry forward, and making headlines around the world. THE FONTAINE STAGE Drawing inspiration from the days of the Rat Pack and the iconic feel of the Fontainebleau, we create a unique setting that brings the look and feel of a large-scale production stage to this historic ballroom. 

CROWDSOURCED KEYNOTES The editorial team at Exchange wants to make you part of the content experience and help shape the agenda. Our crowdsourced keynotes do just that. We will share a list of topics and will allow the advisors who have already registered for Exchange to vote on their favorite topics. THE THREE WINNERS WILL GET 25 MINUTES TO DELIVER A STAND-ALONE TALK ON THE GLIMMER STAGE

CENTER STAGE SESSIONS The Exchange center stage sessions allow for the sharing of more than one idea on a related topic without having panelists talking over each other. These 30-minute sessions will feature two subject matter experts sharing their unique perspectives and approach in a punchy 15-minute stand-alone presentation.  

EXCHANGE LIVE: A PODCAST SERIES Pulling from our deep rolodex of podcasters and media personalities, Exchange Live brings the excitement of live media to the stage to spark conversations and help advisors tackle many of the pressing issues they face today.

WEDNESDAY WORKSHOPS Advisors face a wide range of challenges from keeping up with the latest market trends, to growing their practice in an impactful and meaningful way. Exchange wants to help you. We have created two 90-minute peer-led workshops to help you better market yourself and your practice. In addition, we take on the world of crypto, blockchain and NFTs to make sure you aren’t falling behind.

CREATE YOUR OWN SESSION For the first time ever at an ETF event, we are allowing you, the attendee, to create content and invite others to join you. Take advantage of our new networking app, Braindate, to create a working group or build a session to share your expertise with your peers. Learn more about BrainDate here
