Why Attend?

• The only top-level TMT M&A platform running in 2021
With few opportunities for TMT Industry Buyers, Private Equity Investors, Investment Banks and M&A Advisory Boutiques to meet in person this year, we’ve developed the virtual TMT M&A Forum USA to take place over four mornings this September. This will enable you to pack in business-critical information and networking opportunities that fits around your schedule.

• Experience an unrivalled agenda with cutting-edge content
Together with our visionary advisory board, we’re delivering a refreshed agenda that allows top speakers to share experiences on the challenges and opportunities that telecoms, media and technology investment are encountering in the current environment. Share your own experiences, and learn from the collective wisdom of your peers on the latest innovations paving the way for TMT deal-making.

• Gain candid insights
Delve into key challenges and developments across the TMT deal-making ecosystem by joining our panel sessions. Attend in real time for the opportunity to ask live questions to key decisionmakers and network throughout the day

• Join small-group breakouts on September 30 to expand your network
All sessions on Wednesday September 30 are interactive breakouts, giving you the opportunity to join private rooms led by industry experts. You can sign up for one or both breakouts, each with six topic options and a maximum of 15 attendees. In addition, two 30 minute networking sessions will enable to you meet a mix of leaders in the TMT dealmaking ecosystem. This is the best opportunity in 2021 to expand your network. The Chatham House Rule of non-Attribution applies.

• Enhanced one-to-one and group networking opportunities
Experience real interaction and maximise the number of existing and new high-level connections you’ll make through panel discussions with live Q&A, participating in structured one-to-one networking with your peers and go beyond one-way in our interactive small-group breakouts
