New York (HedgeCo.Net) – Evan Rapoport, HedgeCo CEO recently attended the 5th Annual SALT Conference in Las Vegas. In his blog, Capital Introduction, Evan Rapoport gives an overview of this year’s events, people & parties.
Not mentioned in this story are the synopsises of what the speakers spoke at the event. We’re promised this in the second part of this blog series.
SALT is Skybridge’s annual hedge fund conference held in Las Vegas each year. This May marked my fourth SALT conference. Now 2 weeks after it ended I’ve finally caught up with all my emails, and it’s time to digest and relay the experience on to my readers.
The SALT Experience
Stepping off the plane, it becomes obvious that SALT is a different experience than other conferences that the average hedge fund manager or investor will go to this year. The difference is the passion that organizer Anthony Scaramucci has put into not just running a hedge fund conference, but running THE hedge fund conference.
In the last 5 years since the SALT conference started, nobody can argue against the impact that it has had on the industry. This is mirrored by Market Watch who announced that “A guy named ‘The Mooch’ is becoming the face of the hedgefund industry.”
This 4-day event is truly one of a kind, and the experience is a must for any hedge fund, investor (institutional or otherwise), or firm that services the hedge fund industry.
Read the complete blog entry for the details of this great event. Evan Rapoport concludes his article with he following.
No event of this magnitude is possible without the help of the sponsors and the large team that handled all the logistic and organization. Kudos to the Skybridge team for once again pulling off a great conference.
Even though SALT 2013 just ended, I imagine that the Skybridge team is already laying the foundations for SALT 2014, and on behalf of the hedge fund industry, I can say that we are collectively looking forward to getting back together in Vegas for next year and can’t wait to see what the line-up is for SALT 2014.
