HOW IT WORKS // THE DECONSTRUCTED CONFERENCE

Table Talks is a unique and successful Hedge Connection event that brings together thought leaders in the alternative industry to discuss a variety of topics table side.

Prior to the event, all registered attendees will select the 4 sessions they wish to join using our Table Chooser software. Each Table Talk session lasts 30 minutes.

A cocktail party will follow the sessions.

 

One-on-Ones

We are adding pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings between fund managers and allocators to this Table Talks event. The private meetings will occur during the morning of the event, prior to the roundtable sessions. We have 15 spots available to fund managers. The cost for managers is $1,950 for six meetings, and includes access to the afternoon roundtable sessions. Allocators attend for free, however participation must be approved.

The meetings will be arranged prior to the event on the Hedge Connection website using our proprietary scheduling technology. Each participant will complete a profile that will be posted on Hedge Connection's private website. Managers will complete a fund profile with a description of strategy, bios, performance numbers and marketing materials. Investors will answer questions that describe what they require before making an investment.

Using the meeting scheduler, investors and fund managers can research participants, communicate and set up one-on-one meetings based on their unique profiles and objectives. Meetings will take place in 30 minute increments, with one manager hosting one investor per meeting.
