InXpo Partners With Futures Magazine for Virtual Trade Shows

Spotlighting Virtually Everything Available to Today's Traders

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - February 25, 2009) - Futures Magazine, published by Summit Business Media, has teamed up with InXpo, the leader in privately-branded virtual events, to produce their series of Futures I-Trade Shows. These shows offer traders much-needed strategies for navigating today's challenging markets. They held two of these events in May and December of 2008 and will repeat these again this year. Their next event is slated for May 19th-20th of 2009.

Their last event, held on December 10th and 11th, has drawn over 2,250 registrants and the show is still available On Demand until March 10th. The event featured eight speakers ranging from day traders to forex, commodity, stock index and options traders that provided insights to these markets and how to avoid mistakes that they've made. Speakers included renowned trader Larry Williams, author of "The Secrets of Short-Term Trading" and Dan Passarelli, author of "Trading Option Greeks," as well as other well-known traders back by popular demand.

The show had everything a physical trade show would have: The Exhibit Hall, The Presentation Center, The Resource Center and the all-important Lounge for social networking. They also had a Prize Center, where attendees could earn points towards prizes based on their participation throughout the live, two-day show.

"We decided to do virtual trade shows largely because our audience is a diversified group of people, and mainly because they work from their trading desks and don't want to necessarily leave to go to a physical trade show or spend the money or time to do so. Our audience is also global, and travel is tough in today's economy, so going virtual allows us to extend our reach when physical shows might otherwise be poorly attended," said Ginger Szala, Group Publisher and Editorial Director of Futures Magazine.

"We are pleased to partner with Futures Magazine, the largest magazine covering this market, offering traders all the benefits of a physical show, without the time and cost of travel that would take them away from valuable time trading," said Malcolm Lotzof, CEO of InXpo.
