International Business Conferences


“The FWA International Conference offers Members a unique opportunity to meet business, government and financial leaders in the host country each year while forming long-lasting bonds and friendships with fellow delegates.”

— Katrin Dambrot, former International Conference chair


Each year the FWA targets a destination where fundamental investment and business opportunities are developing. Following an initial trip to China in 1978, when the FWA was one of the first groups to visit after a reopening of that country, the globalization of finance led the FWA in 1985 to initiate its series of international business conferences. In each location, the delegation meets with the most senior government and business leaders to understand the investment potential in these countries and to learn of government’s role in support of economic expansion.

2020 Destination: Israel, February 9-14, 2020.

The FWA will be going to a country it has never visited before; a global leader in innovation, entrepreneurship, cybersecurity, water and financial technology, agriculture, and health & life sciences…Israel!

Details coming soon.
