One of the various ways for the company to get into contact with current shareholders and potential future shareholders is attending a (broker) conference. These conferences are organised by brokers and are often organised 'sector-specific'.
There are real estate conferences, insurance and banking conferences, tech conferences, food & beverages conferences etc. Various brokers also organise conferences specifically aimed at geographical regions and there are also for instance Dutch small and midcap conferences.
Aim of the conferences
The aim of these conferences is to bring together investors and investment opportunities in the form of listed companies. During these conferences companies can present themselves, sometimes for the whole audience during plenary presentations or during various one-on-one meetings that are set-up throughout the conference.
