For the first time the New York event on April 21, 2016 will be a combination of the Emerging Manager Forum and CTA Expo. The Expo / Forum is a one day conference consisting of speakers and panels combined with extensive networking opportunities. Attendees can attend any of the presentations throughout the day or decide to talk and network with other industry professionals. In 2015, the events in New York and Chicago again had capacity attendance and the Miami Forum registrations were up over 20% with over 100 attendees from the Florida Alternative Investment Community.

The attendance of our previous conferences has been heavily weighted to capital sources and traders. Typically less than 25% of attendees are from Service Providers. Investors, Institutions, Professional Investors, and RIA’s attend events free.
