About The SPAC Conference

“Thinking Outside the Building”

The pandemic hasn’t slowed down the SPAC market and it won’t slow down the industry’s leading conference either.

We’re committed to making The SPAC Conference 2021 our best event ever by reinventing our format to offer a setting for education, networking and dining that’s largely outdoors. We’re also doubling the length of the conference from one to two full days to accommodate more attendees and a bigger agenda.

Just ask around. Our reputation speaks volumes about the lengths we go to deliver value – whether it’s our laser-focus on developing the best possible content or rethinking the typical event format in order to adapt to change and deliver a superior experience.

Our Venue: One of the Most Prestigious Clubs in America

We are committed to providing a safe environment for all attendees. Since we expect a large turnout, we have moved our venue from the more typical indoor hotel to the spacious Westchester Country Club, where we have contracted to use the entire facility.

This facility includes a large outdoor area where we will conduct the general session underneath a tent so that we are protected from the elements. Networking and dining will also be conducted largely outdoors, although attendees will also have the option to utilize indoor meeting space.
