The MarketsWiki World of Opportunity Summer Intern Education Series in Chicago is coming along nicely with sponsors joining us, interns and newer employees signing up and an expanded speaker list.
We are pleased to announce BATS, CBOE, CME Group, the Stuart School of Business at the Illinois Institute of Technology, and Spot Trading have agreed to be sponsors of our MarketsWiki World of Opportunity Summer Intern Education Series in Chicago.
We are also pleased to announce we have over 80 interns and new employees signed up for the Chicago series so far, with more coming in every day.
Our venue is Stuart School of Business auditorium over at 565 West Adams. The auditorium holds 326 people, so we have plenty of room for this years participants.
We have added several new speakers to the lineup. From Trading Technologies, we now have Stefani Sandow, who has an extensive background in internet architecture and web-user experience and was a key player in the development of TTs new Nextrader platform.
We have also added Tom Cashman, a 50-year member of the Chicago Board of Trade and longtime soybean pit broker and trader. Tom also helped get me into the industry back in 1978. He was the focus of a John Lothian Profiles video in 2012
We still have a couple more speakers to confirm, including a representative to be named from BATS.
If you have interns or newer employees, sign them up. You will not want them to miss this opportunity to hear from industry leaders and key players.
The complete series will be $100 per participant, a drop of $20 from last year. The cost of a single event will be $30. The cost of multiple events will be $25 per event per participant. Lastly, any firm sending 10 or more interns to the whole series gets a 50% discount, or $50 per intern for the whole series.
There are two easy ways to sign up. The first is for individual sign ups for the complete series or individual dates. The second is for firms to directly sign up their interns for the complete series.
For payment, we will be sending out electronic invoices.
Thank you for your participation.
