2017 Visions, Insights & Perspectives (VIP) Americas

January 25, 2017 | Park Hyatt Aviara Resort | Carlsbad, CA

VIP Americas is our flagship event that is anticipated by the industry's top investment managers, investors and consultants. It is "THE" place to meet the right people.

VIP delivers a quality agenda that is marketing-free. It upholds a strict ratio of 3 managers to every 1 investor. This ensures that attendees are able to really engage and get to know one another. Our audience is also capped so that the event is kept at a size that fosters relationship building. During the event there are several opportunities to socialize with attendees. Whether you are discussing critical industry issues as a part of a roundtable breakout session or at an off-site recreational activity, VIP gives you an excellent networking platform to establish new relationships and strengthen existing.
