CHICAGO, July 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Midwest IDEAS Investor Conference will be held on August 31, 2010 at The University of Chicago Gleacher Center, in Chicago, Illinois. The mission of the Midwest IDEAS Investor Conference is to provide an independent venue for quality companies to present their investment merits to an influential audience of investment professionals and analysts from across the country.
The Midwest IDEAS Investor Conference is co-sponsored by Three Part Advisors, LLC, and the CFA Society of Chicago. With 3,800 members, the Chicago chapter of the CFA Institute is one of the largest professional investor organizations in the country. "We enthusiastically support the Midwest IDEAS Conference and its mission of bringing quality companies together with area investors in an independent venue," said Angela McKay, CEO and President of the CFA Society of Chicago.
Additional sponsors include NASDAQ OMX, FACTSET, Perritt Capital Management, Allianz Global Investors: NFJ Investment Group, Hodges Capital Management, NorthPoint Trading Partners, Seeking Alpha, and Ipreo.
The conference format provides each participating company multiple opportunities to meet with key professional investors and explain investment merits to attendees, both in a traditional group presentation, and in private meetings. Each presenting company will also have the opportunity to webcast its group presentation. "With the recent turmoil in the capital markets, it is more important than ever for public companies to take the initiative to communicate directly with existing and potential stockholders, and the Midwest IDEAS Conference provides an excellent forum for that outreach," said David M. Mossberg, Principal of Three Part Advisors, LLC.
Attendees include brokerage firm analysts, portfolio managers, buy side analysts, hedge fund managers, and independent research analysts. Investors may register at the conference website at: www.midwestideas.com.
