A Letter From the Summer Conference Chairman

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

While many in the industry are excited about the prospects ahead and others are concerned, we see plenty of positive signs pointing to strong M&A activity in 2018. But, we also know change is relentless. Being informed — and prepared for disruption as well as opportunity — will be key to success in the year ahead. 

So I want to personally invite you to join us when we convene July 17-19 for The Alliance 2018 Summer Conference in Chicago. 

Right now the conference committee is hard at work putting together a program focused on “The Changing Dynamics of M&A: Future Concerns, Real Solutions”. The action-packed agenda will feature outstanding educational sessions, inspiring keynotes, power networking and, of course, our famous Deal Bash  a remarkable opportunity to meet face-to-face with the international investment community and strengthen your pipeline. 

Engaging in dialogue with a community of committed and forward-thinking colleagues is one of the best ways to be prepared for whatever changes the future holds. It’s also one of the best investments you can make in your own career. The Alliance is that community for mid-market M&A professionals around the globe. I certainly hope you’ll join us in July for what promises to be a truly energizing and enlightening Summer Conference. Attending could be career-changing for you.
