About our events

CREFC Europe is committed to providing market participants in our industry with seminars and conferences that are informative, engaging and thought-provoking, as well as with the associated networking opportunities.

All our events are open to non-members, but staff at member firms can attend seminars and educational sessions free of charge (subject to space), and get substantial discounts on the registration fees at our conferences.

Besides bringing industry participants together, the overriding aims of our events are to promote investor understanding and participation and to encourage communication, transparency and the exchange of ideas in the market.

We schedule events throughout the year, so please check the calendar regularly for more information.

All our events are held in compliance with our competition policy.

For enquiries relating to our events, please contact Carol Wilkie on +44 (0)20 3651 5567 or cwilkie@crefceurope.org.

Seminar series and educational sessions

We aim to hold six to eight seminars each year. Some provide in-depth information and discussion about important and sometimes technical industry issues. Others seek to provide stimulating debate about current hot topics. CREFC Europe member firms can attend any of these seminars free of charge. A registration fee applies for non-member attendees.

Educational sessions which are held ahead of our spring and autumn conferences are open to all, and free to attend for members and full-time students (subject to space).  In April 2016 we launched YPREFread all about it and contact us if you’d like to be kept informed.

Make sure you are on our mailing list or check our calendar regularly to find out about forthcoming events.

CREFC Europe Conferences

We currently hold two major conferences each year, usually in spring and autumn.  Our conferences have built a deserved reputation for attracting strong speakers to discuss a broad range of interesting, topical and sometimes challenging topics in an engaging and stimulating way. Attendance is made even more attractive by educational sessions and, where possible, technical or specialist working group meetings on the periphery of the conferences. A dinner for speakers and invited guests ahead of each conference will continue to feature in our programme.
