Once the gathering of a handful of industry pioneers, the Global Private Equity Conference (GPEC) has become the most comprehensive emerging markets private equity conference in the world, attended by over 875 delegates from more than 60 countries. This year’s conference centers around the theme “Unlocking the Power of Private Equity in Emerging Markets” The 17th annual event, to be held on May 12 and 13, 2015 in Washington, DC, is presented by IFC in association with EMPEA.
Led by a speaker faculty of more than 100 of the industry’s leading practitioners, GPEC still maintains the same objectives of its early days and has earned the reputation of the place where industry players from around the globe engage in thought-provoking discussions, debates, and analyses. Attendees include public and pension funds, private investors, and family offices, as well as leading fund managers around the world.
GPEC’s two-day main forum will be preceded by the Fifth Annual Institutional Investors-Only Summit on May 11, where institutional investors will convene for presentations and peer-to-peer exchanges on allocating to emerging markets private equity.
IFC and EMPEA are grateful for the participation and thought leadership of its many speakers. Keynote speakers include:
