Record Participation Expected at 2015 Marcum MicroCap Conference
New York City, NY – Record numbers of presenting companies and attendees have registered for the 2015 Marcum MicroCap Conference, taking place May 27-28 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City. The annual conference, which provides a forum for publicly traded companies under $500 million in market capitalization to network with the investment community, is presented by nationally ranked accounting firm Marcum LLP.
To date, over 160 emerging growth companies in six principal industry sectors have registered to present this year, an increase of more than 30 percent from last year’s conference. Attendee registration so far this year is outpacing last year by over 20% and is expected to exceed 2000 participants. Conference participation by issuers and attendees has increased in each of the four years the conference has been presented.
“The Marcum MicroCap Conference was conceived to fill a need on the East Coast, where pre-IPO and young public companies could introduce themselves to a spectrum of representatives from the investment community,” said David C. Bukzin, Partner-in-Charge of Marcum’s SEC Services Practice group and producer of the event. “It is extremely exciting and gratifying to see that both issuers and attendees value what our conference offers and are committing the time and resources to be there.”
