The ActivTrades Summit was a great success! There were hundreds of attendees who benefited from the presentations of nine renowned speakers. All of the delegates were able to leave with the presentations and received access to an online trading course worth £495.
A survey conducted showed that 97% of people rated the Summit between 4-5*, with 85% people stating that they were very likely to open a live account.
We would like to thank everyone that attended and participated on the day and we look forward to seeing you at the next event.
