Next week, January 12-14th, the Alliance of M&A Advisors is hosting its annual winter conference in Las Vegas. There is usually a wide variety of folks involved in middle-market financing and M&A there… investors, lenders, attorneys, CPA, investment bankers, valuation gurus, etc. The last conference was informative and valuable from the perspective of staying abreast of industry trends. I gained the most value from networking with folks that I knew and by making new industry contacts. It’s a good environment that facilitates deal flow and opportunity exchanges.
You may want to stay for the AM&AA post-conference workshop on Friday morning January 15th. There are several sessions including “The Value Edge: Learn How Private Equity Players and the World’s Top Companies Build Value and Wealth” and one that I’m leading on capital for growth companies.
I’ll keep you posted with feedback and observations after returning.
