Emerging Growth Companies Line Up for 3rd Annual Marcum MicroCap Conference

New York City, NY – The 3rd Annual Marcum MicroCap Conference, taking place May 29 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City, has surpassed demand from last year’s sold-out event. Registration by some of the country’s most promising young growth companies to present at the conference has now out-paced registration at this time in 2013. Approximately 130 presentation slots are available, and all are expected to sell out again this year.

The Marcum MicroCap Conference is presented by the SEC Services Practice of Marcum LLP, a top national accounting and advisory firm. The annual event is a showcase for superior quality, under-followed public companies with less than $500 million in market capitalization. Seven industry sectors will be represented, including Technology & Telecom; Social Media & Internet; Life Sciences; Retail & Consumer Products; Energy & Natural Resources; Industrials; and Special Situations.

The conference is a signature event for investors seeking highly qualified growth opportunities and for management teams seeking increased investor sponsorship and potential funding. The event is attended annually by over 2,000 institutional investors, sell-side analysts, investment bankers, senior executives and service providers.

This year’s keynote speaker is Rudy Giuliani, the 107th Mayor of New York City.

“We have the highest expectations that the 2014 Marcum MicroCap Conference will exceed the previous two years in terms of quality presentations and investor engagement,” said David C. Bukzin, Partner-in-Charge of Marcum’s SEC Services Practice and of the Firm’s New York City office. “Based on the steady pace of company enrollment and investor registration we’ve seen so far, we have every reason to believe 2014 will be the best year yet.”
