Live From Orlando
Our 25th Anniversary Conference was held Monday January 9 through Wednesday January 11, 2023 at the at the JW Marriott & Ritz-Carlton Resort in Orlando, Florida. After two years in a virtual environment, we had record breaking attendance with over 2700+ attendees, presentations by 150+ Public Company CEO’s and CFO’s while our dedicated Private Company Day: Next Generation Growth attracted more than 100 private company management teams, there to communicate their story and business model while looking to establish relationships with the financial community.
The three-day event was filled with insightful panels on important industry topics like ESG & Proxy Season Preview, 2023 Retail & Restaurant Outlook, M&A in 2023, dynamic speakers, brand activations from The One Group, Portillo’s, Solo Brands, Purple and more, evening receptions and thousands of meetings with key stakeholders. We thank you all participation and support of the event.
First time attending?
For those who are interested in attending the conference for the first time, the ICR Conference is a unique platform where public and private company management teams, institutional investors, sell-side research analysts, investment bankers, private equity professionals and select media connect with one another with the goal of understanding consumer trends and public company prospects as the year begins. Hundreds of presentations, thousands of meetings, speakers, interactive breakouts and panels, and networking events make up this must attend event.
While the pandemic prohibited us from being together in person in 2021 and 2022, the virtual event saw record attendance and continued our historic momentum.
We look forward to building on that success in 2023 and beyond.
