New York—Investorside Research Association, the U.S. non-profit trade association for the independent research industry, has scheduled its fourth annual Independents’ Day conference on April 7th, 2008. Investorside is changing the format of the conference to focus more on showcasing its membership for institutional investors.
This year’s conference will include panels discussing different types of research and new research technologies, such as expert networks, search-based research and research management systems. The heart of the conference will be a series of breakout sessions allowing investors to meet with specific research providers to better understand their offerings.
The conference, which will take place at the Grand Hyatt, expects to increase attendance by institutional investors, partly through the efforts of sponsors such as Goldman Sachs’ Hudson Street Services. Executive Director Pat Shea is working closely with Investorside members to finalize the agenda.
We’ll look forward to seeing you there!
