Hosting a Roadshow in Turkey needs no explanation. With 70 million Muslims, four rapidly growing domestic participation banks, numerous external financial service providers, and now a government showing its commitment to growing the Islamic finance industry with the 2010 US$100 million Sukuk, Turkey is perhaps the most vibrant of markets in the industry today.
First held in 2009, the IFN Roadshow in Istanbul has continued to develop and mature. Over 80 delegates attended in 2010, over 120 in 2011 and all senior industry practitioners. In 2012, with more support than before, we expect audience numbers to increase yet again. And with the full support from the Central Bank, the Istanbul Stock Exchange and the Participation Banks Association of Turkey, this will be an event you can't afford to miss.
