Our premier conferences give your company exclusive access to CCOs, operations managers, and senior management from some of the world’s largest financial firms. The majority of our attendees come from firms with assets in excess of 1 billion dollars.

By partnering with us, your company will have high visibility and direct access to these attendees, who offer huge business potential.

Enjoy unsurpassed networking opportunities with senior executives; a unique and entertaining learning environment, with networking opportunities during scheduled breaks, breakfasts and lunch.

Our conferences also include a welcoming reception on day one and an evening event on the second day for all conference attendees, speakers and vendors, offering additional networking opportunities.

In keeping with our philosophy of exclusivity and providing the best solutions for our clients, our selection process limits the number of exhibitors to 10-15. By limiting the number of exhibitors and screening for only the highest caliber compliance solution providers, we increase the quality of each attendee’s visit to your booth.
