The National Investment Banking Association (NIBA) continues matchmaking – and rainmaking – activities as its 147th investment conference prepares to get underway. Set for November 12-13, 2019, at the Westin New York in Times Square, the conference will be, as with past incarnations, a detailed display of financial intermediation at work. Since 1982, NIBA has been connecting companies with funding and liquidity sources, and this event promises to be no different.
This year has been a bumper year for IPOs. Public placements have already eclipsed 2018 totals, with close to $50 billion raised. For companies seeking equity from the public markets, the NIBA conference offers a unique opportunity to meet and hear from investment professionals with expertise in more than 60 key industries. For small- and micro-cap companies, the networking potential of the NIBA investment conference could make this November one to remember.
For more than three decades, the National Investment Banking Association has been serving the micro-cap and small-cap investment community. With this year’s gathering, the organization will have hosted 147 investment conferences showcasing public and private companies seeking access to the financial markets. NIBA’s network is made up of thousands of investment professionals and includes more than 8,800 registered representatives with over $78 billion in AUM. To date, its members have raised over $17 billion and are responsible for 90 percent of all IPOs under $20 million.
The conference venue, the Westin New York at Times Square, is as convenient as it is comfortable. The landmark 873-room, 45-story building is located in the heart of the Big Apple, within walking distance of 40 theaters and a host of world-famous shops and restaurants. Attendees will also enjoy easy access to the subway system via Penn Station and Grand Central Station. For those with wanderlust, New York City’s fashion and financial districts are just a stone’s throw away.
Conference attendees can also augment their experiences with a variety of extracurricular activities available at the Westin itself. Hotel guests can shape up in the gym or explore what the 200,000-square-foot retail, dining and entertainment complex has to offer.
Of course, the conference itself will be the highlight. NIBA’s 147th investment conference agenda includes the following:
