"It’s a very convenient way for professionals to grow their networks, discover new ideas, build business relationships, secure capital and bring value for the companies they represent."
LOUISVILLE, KY. (PRWEB) May 06, 2021
The Mid-South ACG Capital Connection, an annual event that brings together professionals who plan, finance, and carry out transactions that grow companies and their communities, returns to Louisville this June 17-18.
Hosted virtually and highlighting Louisville's many attractions -- bourbon and racing in particular -- Mid-South is the deal nexus for a rich cross-section of private equity professionals, mezzanine lenders, investment bankers, service providers and corporate executives and entrepreneurs.
"It’s a very convenient way for professionals to grow their networks, discover new ideas, build business relationships, secure capital and bring value for the companies they represent," said Brad Smith, chairman of the 2021 event and managing partner of MCM CPAs and Advisors. "It's an ideal way to channel business passion to achieve strategic results."
In its 12th year and co-produced by the Tennessee and Kentucky chapters of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), Mid-South brings together hundreds of professionals who focus on investment capital and corporate growth needs. The event alternates between Louisville and Nashville each year.
This year, the conference reflects Louisville's distinct flavor and genteel hospitality with an "At the Races" kickoff and a curated premium bourbon-tasting reception. Expert panels will explore what M&A professionals should know about Bitcoin and crypto currency; Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) impacts; and "lessons learned" about deals in the current M&A climate.
The conference continues its popular private equity marketplace, investment banking connection meetings, small group networking lounges, and one-on-one deal meetings with virtually any conference attendee.
Registration is open now, and participation fees vary by registration class (private equity groups, investment bankers, ACG members and non-member professionals.) Register at: https://tinyurl.com/2021MidSouthCapConn
