What is the event’s history?

Mary Ruggiero: “Proactive Investors has been running successful investor events, conferences and forums in London, Manchester, Dublin, Toronto, Melbourne, and Sydney for nearly 10 years. We opened our New York office almost a year ago and held our first event in NYC in April. That event proved popular and was standing room only during the presentations. The attendees comprised of genuine institutional and retail investors with an interest in learning about investment opportunities. They met with CEOs from a wide range of companies. Since then we host about one event every month.”


How many attendees do you expect at this event?

Mary Ruggiero: “We have over 400 registered attendees and about half will be selected to attend the event. At any one point, we expect there to be 100 investors in the room, including many from the top investment banks, as well as some of the largest fund managers and high net worth individuals.”


Who should attend and why?

Mary Ruggiero: “This event is intended for genuine institutional and retail investors who are considering putting their money to work in this dynamic sector. This is your chance to meet the CEOs of companies you are invested in or may be considering investing in, network with like-minded investors, and perhaps be part of a spectacular growth story.”
