Event Date Mon Feb 11 EST - Wed Feb 13 EST (almost 5 years ago)
Location InterContinental Los Angeles Century City
2151 Avenue of the Stars, Los Angeles, CA 90067, USA
Region Americas

A truly unique and all-inclusive agenda featured the hottest topics and latest market trends. By combining and balancing the buyout and venture-focused content, we dug deep into the important market developments: equipping attendees with the knowledge and expertise they couldn’t find anywhere else.

Global and regional institutional investors love SuperReturn US West! Two LP-only breakfasts and a variety of LP-focused discussions help attract 100+ LPs. A range of LP/GP structured and informal networking opportunities enabled deeper interaction. We kept it fresh with novel content themes, including a brand new Secondaries Summit, a track on Private Credit and Distressed Debt as well as some thought-provoking and controversial discussions.
