The 68th CFA Institute Annual Conference is an opportunity to hear industry experts and academics discussing best practices and the latest investment thinking, but delegates can also build their professional networks and make new connections during their time in Frankfurt. Here are some of the networking opportunities available:
- Delegate and University Student Networking Reception
Delegates can make a difference shaping the next generation of our profession’s leaders by sharing career tips and industry insights during this dynamic and rewarding first-day session. The Delegate and University Student Networking Reception will offer delegates the opportunity to explore investment industry topics with CFA-track students from local Frankfurt universities.
- Sunday Welcome Reception
Following Sunday night’s keynote address from John Coates, neuroscientist and author of The Hour between Dog and Wolf, there will be a welcome reception at the Frankfurt Marriott Hotel. The reception is one of the events open to conference delegates’ registered guests.
- Tuesday Networking Reception and Dinner at Kurhaus Wiesbaden
At Tuesday evening’s reception, delegates can explore the opulently appointed rooms of the neoclassical Kurhaus, cultural center of Wiesbaden, while dining on a variety of fare from regions across Germany. It will be an opportunity for conference delegates and their guests to socialize with new acquaintances and reconnect with old friends.
