An annual event that was first held in 1974, the New Orleans Investment Conference is the oldest and most respected investment gathering in the world. It allows serious investors to immerse themselves in the trends driving U.S. and global markets. Attendees come away from the Conference fully briefed on the outlook for the economy and investment markets. They emerge fully prepared to strategically position their portfolios to reduce risks and boost returns over the coming year.

In addition to crucial economic and investment benchmarks, attendees also receive detailed information on today’s very best investment ideas from some of the world’s leading investment strategists.

Q. Who attends this event?

The majority of Conference attendees are private investors. Most have an investment portfolio of sufficient size to make it crucial that they keep in touch with shifting market trends. A number of investment professionals also attend the Conference, with an eye toward expanding their knowledge about current trends and opportunities.

Q. I've registered for the Conference. What should I do now?

First, check the information in your confirmation email to make sure all your information is correct. It is especially important that you confirm your hotel arrangements as soon as possible, as there are only a limited number of rooms available in the convenient Conference host hotel, the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.

As an official registrant, you’ll begin receiving regular Member Benefits Packets of various newsletters and reports from the experts scheduled to speak at New Orleans 2019. This exclusive bonus alone is worth more than the price of admission to the Conference.

Q. What is a typical day at the Conference?

The conference begins with an opening reception held in the Exhibit Hall, and ends with a closing reception filled with special New Orleans treats and local music. Attendance to both receptions is included with your registration. Additionally, sponsoring companies host Sunrise Session breakfasts and Corporate Luncheon presentations during each full day of the conference. Attendees can visit the companies’ booths in advance for tickets to meal events.

Conference days begin early in the morning. The day consists of a larger general session, where topics of broad and urgent interest to the entire group are presented, including a fascinating assortment of special panel discussions, debates and presentations.

Between general sessions, the Conference breaks into smaller hands-on workshops, where you’ll learn about specific investment strategies and have the opportunity to exchange questions and answers with faculty and other Conference participants. All together, there are dozens of speakers, workshops, presentations, and panels to choose from, presented by the largest collection of topflight authorities on the economy and investments anywhere.

Don’t feel compelled to try and squeeze in every presentation, or you might tire yourself out. Rather, pick and choose among those topics of greatest interest to you and take some time out to visit the exhibits offering free information on a variety of financial products and services.

This is the 45th annual New Orleans Conference. As usual, you can expect us to be pulling out all the stops to make the entire event very special.
