More than 150 deal professionals came together last week for Axial Concord New York 2018. This was our fifth flagship event in New York, and the eighth Concord conference, which now has a presence in Dallas and Chicago in addition to NYC.
Concord is all about getting deals done: the Axial team receives live and pre-market deals from sell-side members prior to the event and uses them to schedule a full day of meetings for each attendee. More than 700 pre-scheduled meetings took place between deal professionals in addition to dozens more informal meetings throughout the day and during cocktail hour. While members can request specific meetings, the most productive ones are often those that may never have happened without Axial’s matching algorithm — see this success story from last year’s Concord NYC for proof.
Here are few fast facts about this year’s event:
- 150 attendees
- 165 live and pre-market deals
- 700+ one-on-one meetings
- 50% sell-side firms
- 13% family offices
- 8-12 meetings per attendee
- 70% of buy-side attendees from outside the Tri-State area
