Virtual Event - New York, NY

What is Qwoted?

Qwoted is a free expert network: we help reporters connect with experts & we help those same experts build relationships with top reporters.

Event Date Wed May 26 EDT - Thu May 27 EDT (5 months ago)
Location Virtual Event - New York, NY
Region Americas

The virtual event will replicate all elements of the yearly CLO industry gathering, so delegates may join timely panels discussions, network with likeminded peers, and engage with sponsors in a convenient digital format.

As the CLO market adapts to the COVID-19 era and an intense year following the U.S. election, we anticipate the number of participants to grow and its geographic reach to expand with our new virtual format. As always, this industry conference will provide the same valuable and timely program content you’ve come to expect from IMN, as well as opportunities to network with thousands of industry peers and much more.

We look forward to engaging with you this May!
