The IFC’s 21st Annual Global Private Equity Conference in association with EMPEA

    Join us for the 21st Annual Global Private Equity Conference in Washington, DC on 13-15 May 2019. This conference is the world’s leading event dedicated to exploring private investment opportunities across emerging and frontier markets. Come May 2019, IFC and EMPEA will build off the record 2018 attendance by hosting than 900 investment professionals from 70 countries.

    The 21st edition of the Conference will continue to bring a wide array of actors together—from family offices, private and public pension funds, foundations, endowments, insurance companies, development finance institutions, fund-of-funds, established global fund managers, new investors, international and national government officials and regulators, to private equity consultants and advisors—for thought-provoking discussions, debates and analyses that are most top-of-mind for today’s business and industry leaders. Conference themes we expect to cover include Technology, Innovation and Opportunity, the Future of Governance, Specialization, the Middle Market, and Sustainability and Inclusion

    Session topics will also cover the entire spectrum of private equity investments, addressing not only the global context for investment decision-making, but also regional and country-specific developments and trends at the sector level.
