iConnections is relocating its flagship event, Global Alts, to the Miami Convention Center in 2025, reaffirming its commitment to offering an exceptional experience for attendees in the alternative investments industry. This move allows for more networking opportunities, flexibility, and brand visibility while retaining iconic evening events at Fontainebleau and Eden Roc.
NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — iConnections, a leading provider of financial technology services and solutions, is thrilled to announce a transformative change to its flagship event, Global Alts. In 2025, the much-anticipated Global Alts conference will be hosted at the Miami Convention Center.
This strategic shift reflects iConnections’ unwavering commitment to providing an unparalleled experience for attendees, speakers, and partners, and solidifies its position as a premier platform for networking, knowledge sharing, and investment opportunities within the alternative investments space.
Expanding Opportunities and Space
The Miami Convention Center offers an expansive and state-of-the-art venue that is perfectly suited to accommodate the growing needs of the Global Alts community. Attendees can look forward to:
- More Networking Opportunities: The increased space provides more opportunities for One-on-One meetings and attendees to connect, collaborate, and foster meaningful relationships with industry peers.
- Enhanced Flexibility: Centralizing content and one-on-one meetings at the Convention Center streamlines the conference experience, eliminating the need for attendees to walk between multiple venues.
- Greater Brand Presence: Managers and Sponsors will have the opportunity to amplify their brand visibility with larger booths and enhanced branding opportunities, further strengthening their industry presence.
- Spacious Content Rooms: The Convention Center will feature larger content rooms, ensuring a comfortable environment for engaging discussions and knowledge-sharing sessions.
Continuing the Legacy
iConnections understands and appreciates the cherished legacy of the Fontainebleau and Eden Roc. While one-on-one meetings and leadership day moves to the Convention Center, evening receptions, networking events and the hotel room block will remain conveniently located at these iconic venues, offering attendees the best of both worlds.
Global Alts 2024 marked the culmination of three immensely successful years at the Fontainebleau and Eden Roc, where we witnessed remarkable year-over-year growth, consistently exceeding 30%. However, this year proved to be a watershed moment as the event achieved unprecedented heights. We proudly welcomed over 1,100 allocators, 850 managers, and facilitated over 15,000 one-on-one meetings, underscoring the event’s phenomenal growth trajectory.
Yet, with this success came the bittersweet realization of our capacity limitations. Global Alts 2024 sold out, a testament to the immense interest and trust of our community. Regrettably, we had to turn away a significant number of new clients, reflecting both the event’s popularity and the challenges posed by capacity constraints. This exceptional demand reaffirms the value and importance of Global Alts in the alternative investments industry.
“We are excited to embark on this journey to the Miami Convention Center for Global Alts 2025,” said Ron Biscardi, CEO & Co-Founder of iConnections. “This move represents our commitment to continuously enhancing the conference experience for our valued community members. It ensures that attendees have the space, flexibility, and opportunities they need to thrive.”
