  • Conference Format

    Each conference is a two-day, fully online event. Attend sessions, meet the experts, and network with peers — from the comfort of your home or office.

    Day One: Wisdom
    The first day of each conference focuses on deepening your understanding of the conference topic. For example, Day One of the European Investing Congress looks at the status of the eurozone crisis, key implications for investors, and the process for finding great ideas.

    Day Two: Ideas
    The second day of each conference focuses exclusively on money-making investment ideas. Our instructors present long equity ideas that meet stringent fundamental investment criteria. Day Two will satisfy your desire to have the event you attend more than pay for itself. Enjoy and profit!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I'm busy on January 8th and 9th?

No problem! You'll enjoy six month of continuous online access to conference proceedings, including replays, presentations, transcripts, and more. Even if you miss the live event, you'll have an ability to send us your follow-up questions for the instructors months after the conclusion of the live event.

Do I need any special technology to attend?

No, all you need is a phone to dial into the live sessions. If you have a computer, you don't even need a phone! Attend entirely online without ever dialing a phone number or leaving your home or office. If you're on the road or on vacation, you can even attend via your iPad or iPhone.

Do the sessions feature live Q&A?

All 10+ live sessions will feature extensive Q&A, which will enable you to pose questions directly to instructors like Tom Gayner and Robert Hagstrom.

Since we can't fit many more than ten live sessions into the two-day event, we will be recording the remaining sessions in the days leading up to the live conference. Those recorded sessions will be available for your on-demand enjoyment in the Main Conference Area. You'll have an ability to ask questions even of instructors whose presentations we will pre-record.

Why is this event so much cheaper than alternatives?

Since this is a fully online event, we don't incur expenses related to a physical venue. We pass those savings to you. It's that simple! You save on the ticket price and the cost of getting there, while we avoid the administrative and financial burdens of a physical conference.

On the flipside, the fully online format allows you to enjoy access to conference proceedings for a period of six months following the live event. Listen to replays as many times as you wish and even download them to your computer or mobile device to keep forever. Ask questions and engage with fellow participants days, weeks, and even months after the live event. Our strategic partnerships with leading Internet companies allow us to leverage the latest in conferencing technology to add more value at significantly lower cost.

Should I attend?

You should attend if you are looking for exceptional investment ideas from some of the most highly regarded investment managers in the world, or if you want to learn from expert instructors eager to share their wisdom and insights, or if you want to meet some of the most successful investors in the business, or if you wish to be part of a global audience of investors who value rigorous security analysis and mutual learning.
