Conference Rescheduling Notice:

PEI Media has been working with our teams, clients and suppliers to monitor the impact of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The new 2021 dates are October 12-13, 2021.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused, but as always, the safety and health of our participants, community and staff are our priority and we feel this is the best option. PEI will be hosting an alternative 2020 conference: Private Fund Compliance New York on December 9-10, 2020 at Convene, 730 Third Ave. If you have any questions, please contact
