About the conference

AFME is pleased to announce that the 15th Annual European Government Bond Conference will now be held as a virtual conference. The event will be held over a half-day session on the morning of 17 November.

AFME’s European Government Bond Virtual Conference continues to bring together the leading names in the industry to network and debate. The programme includes input from European DMOs, investors in sovereign bonds, primary dealers, fixed income traders and regulators on the latest issues influencing the European government bond markets.
