About the Event


The BRICSX Marketplace ™ is a free online 4-day conference – we bring together traders and business people from the Extended BRICS countries, hence the name BRICSX. Our motto is “Trade. Learn. Grow.” – the Marketplace concept implies we are focused on goods and commodities trading, and we also bring together experts – the exact same people – who can help your enterprise be more successful in those countries.

Inclusion is at the heart of what we do, so though we are focused on understanding the BRICSX markets, we are also welcoming all members of the business community who have an interest in either trading with and/or establishing business ties in those countries.

The free conference is a 4-day online event held in English, and we have our online community, where you can find a lot more information, and interaction with traders; in the online community we have focus areas for the respective countries, as well as for specific commodities. Some of the circles do include discussions, interviews, reports, and presentations in other languages, though the Main Circle only conducts business in English. To find more information about the BRICSX Marketplace Community, visit our booth in the Exhibitors Hall.

The conference meets from Oct 28th – Oct 31st, with the conference’s fifth day – Nov 1st – reserved for masterclasses, learning activities, and more opportunities for networking. The conference is scheduled to run from 8AM until 5PM Eastern using 30-minute long sessions, and we have 1-hour long keynote sessions scheduled, in addition to the opening.

During the lunch hour we will visit the Exhibitor’s Hall, and participate in discussions using the networking tables – those are focused discussions with topics of interest to traders.



WhoWe are?
