All seriousness aside, we at FTF News are doing our part to have fun at next week’s Sifma Tech show, June 18-19, in New York.
The good times begin at our Sifma booth, No. 1301, where we have created a customized parody of a popular, old school electronic game, something we’re calling the interactive “Operations.” The giveaways are also customized — FTF boxer shorts for those Sifma Tech participants brave enough to play our game (Check out the photo.)
We will be a little more formal at the FTF News Technology Innovation Awards dinner. The event will take place Monday, June 17, starting at 6 pm at the Dream Hotel downtown in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan at 355 West 16th St. In addition to the awards presentation, the night will feature Lois Barth, a professional and motivational speaker who has more than 20 years of experience as a life coach, speaker, health care practitioner and storyteller/comedienne. Tickets are still available for what will be a very special awards show.
On the second day of the show, Wednesday, June 19, we will break up the afternoon with customized cupcakes from the very successful “Baked by Melissa” cupcake-maker.
You can discreetly carry away your boxers and cupcakes in our very fashionable bags that say, “Let us do the heavy lifting,” on one side and “You have it in the bag with FTF,” on the other.
While FTF News is mostly an online news source, we will deliver print and digital editions in time for the Sifma show. We hope you will find that our latest edition breaks new ground via our focus on the “New Rule of Operational Data Management.”
In our fourth magazine, we tackle the data-related problem areas for corporate actions data processing, products and services for the very successful legal entity identifier effort, the messy data gathering to come for over-the-counter instrument collateral management and margining, the data integration challenges of automating reconciliation and whether or not firms should build data warehouses.
Our digital issue will be available via a touch-screen monitor at our Sifma booth and in a traditional print format.
We may have some other surprises in store but you’ll just have to come by our booth or contact us to find out more.
