Who isn’t on the lookout for their next deal? It’s the nature of the industry, but there are only so many hours in a day, in a week, in a month. You want to spend more time working the deals than sourcing them. You need one reliable go-to place and that’s what ACG’s annual InterGrowth conference is all about. The tagline is “Capital. Connections. Deals.”, but that might be oversimplifying it because InterGrowth has all of these in spades. Just let the numbers speak for themselves:
- InterGrowth attendees consistently account for 1/3 of total U.S. PE deals
- InterGrowth attendees are sitting on $145 billion in investable capital
- InterGrowth attendees deployed nearly $40 billion in 1Q 2014
- InterGrowth attendees closed over 700 deals with $111 billion invested in 2013 *stats according to PitchBook Data
When you attend InterGrowth, you’re joining a gathering of over 2,000 M&A professionals for 72 hours of intensive networking, deal flow and updates on best practices and the latest trends. And the InterGrowth community is a true cross-section of all disciplines and sectors of the middle-market, including private equity executives, i-bankers, lenders, corporate strategic acquirers, LPs and service advisers. Take a look for yourself at the current attendee list online at www.intergrowth.org.
So you might be thinking, “2000 people? How do I quickly connect with the ones I need to meet?” That’s where ACG has you covered. Let’s start with the three marketplaces that help drive the InterGrowth experience:
- InterGrowth Lounge—the networking hub of the event
- ACG DealSource—your pipeline to investment banks
- ACG Capital Connection— the perennial powerhouse connecting you with 100 capital providers
And what’s a conference without a little star power? Hear from futurist and former Yahoo! executive and Exponential Organizations author Salim Ismail detail his vision of why some companies grow and why others fail, and then take a front row seat as CBS Sports’ Greg Gumbel interviews golf legend and Great White Shark Enterprises CEO Greg Norman.
Plus, there are a host of exciting receptions and events throughout the conference, including three relaxed receptions overlooking the panoramic views of the Rees Jones-designed golf course – all designed to drive connections. Not to mention a variety of recreational activities, including golf, tennis and a 5K run, to provide attendees with more informal networking opportunities.
