Midwest IDEAS Investor Conference
Our conferences include a three track presentation schedule with thirty minute presentations per company and scheduled one-on-one meetings for qualified investors. A keynote lunch presentation is also scheduled for each day with a distinguished financial leader. Our conferences host approximately 50 to 70 presenting companies ranging from ~$100M to ~$5B market cap with an average of ~$800M at each event. In 2018, we had 180 companies present, 900+ investors attend, and over 1,300 one-on-one meetings scheduled. For more information visit: About IDEAS Investor Conferences.
Unlike traditional investment bank-sponsored conferences, our events are sponsored by money management firms (see link to list below). We generate our list of presenting companies largely based on the suggestions of our sponsors and other buyside relationships, focusing on under-followed and under-appreciated companies.
