Hear from the Experts on SPAC Trends, Deal Strategies and Acquiring Targets
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 1, 2021 / DealFlow Events announces the roster of speakers for the annual SPAC Conference 2021, to be held June 23-24 in Rye, New York at the Westchester Country Club.
This must-attend event features best-in-class professionals delivering cutting-edge information in a luxurious setting. The event will be held outdoors in a tented environment with numerous safety protocols in place to ensure the comfort of event attendees.
Special purpose acquisition companies have seen explosive growth over the last year, setting multiple records for deals and capital raises. M&A opportunities are being sought more assertively by SPAC management teams and private companies are increasingly looking at SPACs as a viable option to go public. In fact, 2021 has already seen the most SPACs going public than in any prior year.
The SPAC Conference offers a forum for discussion about deal trends and why alternative IPO techniques such as SPACs and direct listings have gained favor with both companies and their investors. DealFlow Events has assembled a best-in-class program, where the brightest minds in the business will discuss market dynamics and the latest investment opportunities.
As blank-check companies face increasing competition for deals and new demands from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, staying abreast of the rapidly changing landscape is essential for every professional involved with SPACs.
The SPAC Conference 2021 offers everything you’d expect from a first-class professional event, plus a few special surprises. Attendees called last year’s event, “The best SPAC Conference that’s ever been held.” We aim to top that in 2021 by offering a new, private networking opportunity for companies interested in SPACs. And much more.
