An Operating Partners All Access membership is a new way to keep a global network of operating partners in the know with high-level content and networking across the year.

The Operating Partners Forum: Europe is now just one of the many essential updates we’ll give you throughout the year with your Operating Partners All Access membership.

Europe’s largest event aimed at driving value within private equity owned companies is evolving. Our new All Access offering will bring together a global audience to share successful strategies and provide practical insight to help you create growth throughout the year.

Join us at this crucial time to discuss how to deal with the current downturn and how to return to growth post-crisis. Hear from experienced operating partners and C-level executives on how they continue to deliver value creation strategies, create top-line growth and drive EBITDA improvement in their portfolio.

The event provides extensive opportunities to network virtually. Connect with your peers through one-to-one meetings, group discussions, build relationships and compare value creation best practices.
