For the past four years, the amazing Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego has been host to Stocktoberfest, an eclectic October confab of professional traders, market analysts, fund managers, wealth managers, fintech leaders and venture capitalists exchanging best ideas on stock market tools and trades.
The cult-like followers of this thought leadership conference have come to refer to the annual event as the TED for TRADERS, where new trading ideas, strategies and products are introduced and business deals are made.
Howard Lindzon, co-founder and chairman of StockTwits and general partner of Social Leverage, launched the conference in 2011 to provide a platform for the best and brightest new voices to showcase their disruptive new financial technology tools and platforms. The unique conference programming, compelling off-the-radar speakers, laid-back networking, historic hotel and idyllic island setting of Coronado enticed attendees to return each subsequent year to a larger crowd of insiders, influencers and market makers and shakers.
Of all of the investment conferences, I have always considered Stocktoberfest to be among the most important.
We have been looking for a unique event to partner with for some time. There are a lot of great conferences for professional traders and active investors, but few are able to provide content compelling for both audiences.
Stocktoberfest has become the venue enabling the convergence of Wall Street, Main Street and Silicon Valley.
So we were thrilled when Howard and new StockTwits CEO Ian Rosen (former GM of MarketWatch) asked us to partner with them to co-host the event. Modern Trader, FINalternatives and our other digital platforms are blessed with a sophisticated and discerning audience that would find real value in attending.
Stocktoberfest #5 is finally on the calendar for Octo. 13-15 at The Del Hotel on Coronado. More than 500 traders, investors, leaders from the brokerage and asset management industries and fintech founders will be in attendance to educate, learn and network.
On Aug. 2, Howard wrote about the great opportunities today for “active investors” and that is a lead topic of our 2016 event. Our speakers will drill down on the opportunities.
The site is live and you can get your tickets today. (The agenda is still being finalized—check back on this site weekly.)
Looking forward to seeing you in beautiful Coronado in October!
