DEALMAKERS & SERVICE PROVIDERS

Shake Hands With 150+ Financial Sponsors at Each of Our PartnerConnect Events

Our events are designed with bankers, lenders and service providers squarely in the middle of all of the action at our PartnerConnect events throughout the year. Unlike most competing events, our attendee rosters are typically 90% or more comprised of limited partners and fund managers, which means a strikingly low amount of service providers. Your ticket includes first rate networking with senior decision makers at private market funds (PE, VC, Real Estate and more), as well as limited partners who back them. Group passes and discounts are available. Bankers and lenders also receive a complimentary pass to our well-known Deal Makers’ Dinner, alongside PE firms on the middle night of the conference. For service providers a select few passes are available through dinner sponsorship.

To get still more out of the event with sponsorship opportunities, including attendee lists, branding, and speaking roles, please reach out to please contact Vikash Magdani at vmagdani@buyoutsinsider.com
