This will be our 11th Vancouver Capital Connection, and feedback from exhibitors and attendees has been extremely positive each year. The Capital Connection provides a rich, efficient networking environment for dealmakers and participants, allowing them to meet new sources of capital and dealflow, or to deepen existing relationships.
ACG Vancouver is the preeminent association for deal makers in the BC mid-market. The annual Capital Connection provides one day of unparalleled networking, opportunities for business development and thought leadership from a wide range of M&A professionals from across North America. The conference brings together more than 300 capital funders, advisers and business leaders focused on the deal.
The format will be over one day with expert panels, a keynote speaker luncheon, and the Capital Connection exhibition. The Presidents Dinner will be held the evening prior, on April 2, 2012.
