Why Companies Participate?

We have been sponsoring investor conferences in New York and Boston and putting the interests of presenting public companies first for 25 years. We invite an extremely comprehensive group of professional investors (see below), limit the number of concurrent tracks to three and as a traditional investor conference do not include sponsors, sales people or vendors as attendees.

We host our conferences at the prestigious University Club of NYC ideally located on 5th Avenue and 54th Street.
