"I came back home more invigorated and positive about investing than I have been in a long time! I actually work in financial services and this conference was hands down the best investment event I have ever attended (many times over). I will definitely attend another in the future!" – Kate E.

"A fantastic event in Dallas. The venue was world-class. The seating was comfortable, the technology worked flawlessly… and I would be remiss if I did not mention the food! I have attended, unfortunately, a fair number of investment conferences throughout the years, and yours is the one I look forward to attending again." – Justin F.
