World Business StrategiesServing the Global Financial Community since 2000

We are delighted to announce for our 20th anniversary conference in 2024, we are heading to the beautiful city of Cannes, France.

Cannes is a unique and exciting destination that combines the glamour of the film industry with the natural beauty of the French Riviera and the cultural richness of one of France’s most vibrant cities.

In 2024 we will host The Cannes Quant Festival.

The QFC is arguably the best value quant conference globally. Delegates can attend for under £1300 per seat, if you take full advantage of our 3-for-2 and super early bird offers. This incredible value includes a world class quant line up over two and a half days and our legendary complimentary Gala Dinner.

Workshop Day: The half day workshop on Wednesday 25th September will be complimentary to all delegates.

Testimonials 2023:

My feedback: stay the way you are. Keep the informal atmosphere, which encourages interactions. Keep not using apps, surveys, video recordings, recorded interviews etc. … These gimmicks all create overhead & distractions without adding any noticeable value.

“The 19th Quantitative Conference by WBS in Valencia exceeded all expectations. The event featured an impressive range of topics, attracting fantastic experts whose insights led to valuable discussions. Plus, the location was simply spectacular. Counting down the days until next year’s event!”

“Another great conference from WBS, always staying on the cutting edge with an amazing line-up of headline speakers yet keeping it intimate enough to have loads of interactions between delegates, so the best of both worlds. I have not missed a single one and will not miss one going forward unless I have drowned during the obligatory sunrise swim”
