Are you trying to get maximum value out of your investor relations budget? Have you ever wondered about the competitive differentiators of the various service providers that cater to the IR profession?
Join NIRI Boston and watch a group of service providers battle it out as they try to “win the hearts” of two veteran IROs in this unique twist on the classic ’70s game show The Dating Game. Two IROs – a “bachelor” and “bachelorette” – will pose tough questions to a panel of eligible investor relations service providers in an attempt to find their perfect match. The aim of this meeting is for attendees to see firsthand how top IROs approach IR tool evaluation and make informed decisions on how to spend their budget dollars – and to have a little fun at the same time!
Tom “Call Me Jim Lange” Barth, Head of Investor Relations at Akamai Technologies, will serve as our energetic game show host. The event will feature panels of IR web/app service and shareholder intelligence providers as well as the following IROs, each in search of the IR vendor that best suits their needs:
- Mary Conway, Principal of Conway Communications, an IR consultancy
- Rob Bradley, Director of Investor Relations at LogMeIn
