Conference Title Announcement, STA in the News and More

By Jim Hyde, NYSE, 2024 STA Chair

As this year’s STA Chair, I am very pleased to announce the theme of our 91st Annual Market Structure Conference: Shifting the Landscape.

Shifting the Landscape is an appropriate theme for our flagship event as our industry responds to the typical and atypical forces that impact our market structure. Regulatory agendas and new innovations that promote investment activity and disrupt entrenched business models are a daily occurrence for us. However, today these influences are more ambitious and powerful than what we have encountered in the past. With a Presidential election at the backdrop of a wide and once-in-a-generation range of geopolitical events, Shifting the Landscape illustrates where we are as an industry, and the imperative need for proactive adaption.

Set for September 18-20 at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes Orlandothis year’s event promises to be our most exciting yet! In addition to hosting an outstanding group of broker-dealers, exchanges, buy-side firms, regulators and solution providers, we are thrilled to offer an array of new opportunities to make the most of your time while at the conference. The sprawling Grande Lakes Orlando property, which will allow for a Golf Tournament at the esteemed Ritz-Carlton Golf Club and poolside networking events that fit seamlessly alongside our regular program, will enable us to do exactly that.

As we start to build out the program, you can expect that this year’s conference will be organized under the same guiding principles as in the past: best content, best networking and best value.
