Cannes, France (ots/PRNewswire) - The International Private Equity Market - IPEM - is the world's first international marketplace to take place on February 17-19, 2016 in the Palais des Festivals in Cannes (France) that will gather the whole value chain of the Private Equity industry, from PE professionals to business owners, for 3 days of business meetings and intensive networking.
Participants will include General Partners, Limited Partners, Family Offices, Funds of Funds, Private Debt providers, advisors as well as business owners and entrepreneurs. The focus will be on business networking, meetings, and closing deals, as well as provocative speakers and timely content.
1500 participants from 25 countries are expected on the French Riviera for the three-day event.
To foster new connections, IPEM has put together a rich program of conferences, workshops and events. It includes the IPEM Opening cocktail, the IPEM Party and many inspiring panels and discussions to explore the latest industry trends, and share expertise and best practices. A workshop series dedicated to entrepreneurs has been added to the line-up to offer business owners the unique opportunity to fully understand how PE works, look at the pros and cons of PE as a way of financing a company, and talk about how to find, approach and deal with private equity firms.
In order to make sure that everyone's participation is maximized to the fullest, an online platform and application will be launched in January to help IPEM delegates with the identification of their future partners and the organization of their appointments.
"The private equity industry has no shortage of conferences and events," says Chairman René Pérès, "but IPEM stands out as something that is truly different from the rest. And in private equity, differentiation is essential for success."
