CTAExpo LLC was established in 2008 and Emerging Manager Forum was established in 2010, to help professional alternative investors, allocators and capital raisers meet and identify new trading talent in the CTA, Hedge Fund, FX and alternative management space and to promote alternative investments. The conferences offer attendees the opportunity to communicate with their target client base in person, enhance their visibility in the alternative space and communicate with potential clients through the conference’s extensive media channels. Every CTAExpo LLC Conference has a different flavor, there is little overlap between attendees at each of our conferences. In 2018 there were over 700 unique attendees at the 3 conferences, over 43% of which had never been to a CTAExpo conference before. An average of 42 Traders attended each of our 2018 conferences and the ratio of attendees registered as Capital Sources to Trader has increased, we are consistently seeing an increase in attendees registered as Capital Sources at our events, as well as the number of Service Providers attending our conferences decline. CTAExpo Chicago and CTAExpo/Emerging Manager Forum New York registrations are still reaching capacity consistently. In 2018 Emerging Manager Forum Miami registrations again hit an all time high, with a strong local Florida contingent. Our website traffic in 2018 included almost 2500 unique visitors per month (This does not include online conference materials). The 2018 Electronic Conference materials, including Service Provider Directories, Trader Directories, Conference Program and Public Registration List were read almost 6000 times. In 2017 CTAExpo published our first e-book, An Emerging Manager’s Game Plan. Sponsors can choose from a range of opportunities to enhance their marketing efforts. We can also custom structure sponsorships to create the desired exposure to existing and potential clients. We also offer multi-conference sponsorship discounts.
