The 67th CFA Institute Annual Conference in Seattle will be an opportunity for experienced financial industry professionals, top executives, and portfolio managers to network and exchange ideas with their colleagues as they gather to join CFA Institute in shaping the Future of Finance.
The conference will also be an opportunity for guests of conference delegates to take part in a range of educational and entertaining events:
- Sunday’s keynote presentation from Carl Richards and the conference welcome reception. Richards, who also publishes as “The Sketch Guy” for the New York Times, specializes in explaining the basics of money through simple graphs and diagrams.
- Monday’s neighborhood tour, including a visit to the Seattle Great Wheel. The wheel, which stands 175 feet tall and sits on a foundation of 550 tons of concrete, is the largest observation wheel on the West Coast.
- Tuesday’s networking reception and dinner hosted at the Experience Music Project Museum. The museum is dedicated to contemporary popular culture and was founded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
The full details for these events can be found on the Partner/Guest Social Events page of this site. For delegates and guests looking to explore Seattle at their own pace, tourism representatives will also be available during the conference.
