The Forum is back in person and will bring together the most active private equity IR, marketing and communications professionals to focus on best practices in fundraising, LP relations, branding, communications and marketing strategies. Industry professionals will gather during this critical time to discuss their most significant day-to-day pain points in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis, how the industry is pivoting through the pandemic, the changing fundraising landscape, and how to prepare for and navigate oncoming headwinds.

Greater demands in LP communication, competition for capital, the need for better ESG and DE&I initiatives, and fund marketing during a crisis have all led to an unprecedented time of paradox. Through exclusive panels, interactive roundtable discussions, small-group workshops, and unlimited networking opportunities, the Forum will address these challenges and provide a unique opportunity to hear from heavy hitters in the community, reconnect with colleagues, expand your network, and position your firm for growth.
