About

Following the success of our previous US and London conferences, Calcalist is forging ahead with its international conference series, in which it places the spotlight on the world’s financial hubs currently at the center of global attention. Our first destination for 2018 is New York - the world’s most important metropolis, with paramount influence on global media, finance, politics and culture.
