Connecting Capital With Opportunity
By Neil Currie, Capital Event Management
So far, 2018 has brought a significant correction to the Canadian small and micro-cap space. However, we at Capital Event are still seeing many exciting investment opportunities taking part in our conferences this year. In our first 5 events of 2018, Medical Marijuana has continued to be the industry that has garnered the most investment interest. For a long time, it seemed like the legalization of marijuana for recreational use was never going to happen in Canada, but our government has come through and we have seen some tremendous successes in this space across the board. This has given our investors many ground level opportunities to get involved in the space over the past few years attending our events. As for the other sectors: resource, tech, bio, etcetera, it is highly important that issuers continue to beat the drum in these competitive spaces and get in front of qualified investors. We at Capital Event continue to strive to bring out the best of the best of small and micro-cap investors to get our issuers the support they need.
Our event schedule is strongly weighted in the first half of each year: we started with the AlphaNorth Capital Conference in the Bahamas Jan 12-14, the Whistler Capital Conference Feb 9-11, the Scottsdale Capital Conference April 20-22, the Montreal F1 Capital Conference June 8-10, and most recently the Okanagan Capital Conference in Kelowna July 12-14. We have 2 events left on the schedule for 2018 and we are optimistic that along with these events, the market will generate more positive returns like we’ve seen in recent years. Look to join us in Muskoka September 28-30 at the stunning J.W. Marriott The Rosseau Resort and Spa and then Florida at the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa November 15-17. Our events sell out in advance, so please ensure you have signed up if you wish to participate.

Our conferences are ultimately about building relationships. Establishing, creating and maintaining relationships in the investment industry specific to our small/microcap markets is critical in raising awareness and moving your company to the forefront of investor’s minds.

It is our mission to continue bringing out high quality investors and issuers to each event we host. Capital Event Conferences have proven to bring out the who’s who in the small/microcap space and the only way we can continue to do that is with the help from our attendees.
