Expand Your Network and Get Deals Done Like At No Other Conference in the World

Institutional Investors are faced with crucial risk-return decisions around allocating capital to alternative investment fund managers while, in turn, demanding more knowledge of the workings of these industries. Meanwhile, fund managers in private equity, venture & growth capital, real assets and hedge funds all work furiously at putting existing capital to work to seize on the challenging-yet-dynamic environment. With this in mind, Thomson Reuters presents PartnerConnect, a single event for senior decision-makers across the spectrum of alternative investments for unparalleled opportunities to network, generate ideas and grow their businesses.

Whether your focus is on Private Equity, Venture & Growth Capital, Real Assets, or Hedge Funds, you'll find more insight and connections here than any conference you'll attend all year.

At PartnerConnect East, April 3-5, 2013 in Boston, you'll meet:

  • 250+ institutional investors actively deploying capital into private equity, VC, real estate, infrastructure and hedge funds
  • 300+ fund managers totaling nearly $1 trillion of assets under management
  • 300+ deal and fund intermediaries with an ear to the ground on helping raise assets and get deals done

PartnerConnect is a series of alternative assets events, all under one roof. Choose the event that's right for you:

ExecConnect Private Meetings

ExecConnect is designed with the networking needs of our attendees in mind. The ExecConnect Private Meeting program actively arranges one-on-one meetings between lenders, bankers, LPs and GPs so you'll have time to meet who you need to meet in a private setting. The 20-minute meetings are pre-scheduled by conference directors ensuring you meet with executives who best match your fundraising and investment goals.

To participate in ExecConnect an attendee must purchase either a Partner Pass or a GP Sponsorship. While we regularly schedule hundreds of meetings at each of our events, due to scheduling limitations and preferences, we do not guarantee ExecConnect meetings to all registrants, outside of our GP sponsors.
