Speakers Announced for The SPAC Conference 2020

Hear from the Experts on Trends, Deal Strategies and Acquiring Targets

New York, NY, Nov. 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — DealFlow Events announces the initial roster of speakers for the annual SPAC Conference 2020, to be held Feb. 6, in New York City.

Special purpose acquisition companies have gone through multiple cycles and structural changes over time, with the latest trend showing a significant uptick in activity. 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, 2018 had the most SPACs going public in more than 10 years.

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.
