Testimonial

“This is my second year attending the [TradingTech Summit]. A-Team Group pull together a good group of relevant panellists and speakers – backed up by a good show in the exhibitor section. These are the people who you want to meet and listen to. I find myself able to agree with some information – but always with a learning aspect attached to that and the rest. I look forward to the event next year.”
