What is the Alternative Asset Summit?
The Alternative Asset Summit is a hyper networked event collaboratively structured for industry professionals by industry professionals. Started and organized by friends and friends of friends, the investor heavy and service provider light format better allows for the highest concentration of leading industry professionals to acquire more takeaways while simultaneously accomplishing their annual networking needs.
Why attend the Summit?
The Summit is the best conference to meet investors, with its investor heavy, service provider light format in recent years 40-50% of the attendees were investors and 30% were managers. With the Hedge Fund Boot Camp on Oct. 27th, over 1,000 one-on-one meeting slots available on Oct. 28-30th and other great networking opportunities the Summit is designed for managers to meet as many qualified investors as possible.
Who attends the Alternative Asset Summit?
The investor heavy/service provider light collaboratively structured Summit format is unique in that attendees are primarily Institutional Investors, Family Offices, Consultants, Fund of Funds, State Treasurers, Foundations and Endowments. The Investor Waived Registration format draws a larger number of Institutional Investors. We feel this attendee and programming mix will allow managers and investors to more actively network within the context of an acute focus on cutting edge industry issues amongst friends and friends of friends.
Featured Manager RoundTables – Invitation Only – Wed Oct. 28th and Thur Oct. 29th
In addition to the one-on-ones, we have set aside specific time for invited Featured Managers to present in RoundTable sessions where managers have the opportunity to present to groups of Family Offices/Accredited Investors/Allocators.
