About the 2019 Event

As we approach the 15th anniversary of this important event, the ILPA Summit continues to be the industry's premier forum bringing GPs and LPs from around the globe for an engaging 2 days of private meetings and networking opportunities. Interest for the event runs high and early registration typically sells out within 24 hours.

Qualified GPs and engaged LPs are scheduled to meet based on optimized preferences to ensure productive and mutually beneficial meetings. Limited Partner attendees include a broad range of senior level institutional investors representing public and corporate pension plans, endowments, foundations, family offices, insurance companies, and other private equity institutional investors.

How is the ILPA Summit experience different from other events?

  • The intimate LP/GP meetings are the main focus of the event
  • The ILPA uses a sophisticated matching tool to generate meetings based on mutual interest
  • The proprietary, custom-built software system collects each LP and GP’s rankings to generate a personalized meeting itinerary
  • All participating GP organizations are vetted by an LP screening committee prior to being invited to register; all LP attendees are high-quality, accredited institutional investors
  • Past surveys of GP participants have confirmed that respondents attribute relationships built at the Summit to an average of 3-4 LP commitments and 3-4 re-ups

ILPA Summit Application

Please note: As ILPA is an association for investors in private equity, GPs applying should note that funds that are very niche focused or focused on real assets, infrastructure and real estate are most likely not a fit for the ILPA Summit. General Partner attendees include Buyout, Growth, Distressed, Mezzanine, Secondary, Venture Capital, and select specialty funds from around the world.

The GP Summit is unique. There is no other event like this where you get 10 quality meetings in a day and a half. The rest are just general conferences.
It’s invaluable LP networking. There is no other opportunity to market to the ILPA membership.
The ILPA brings together our senior people and those from the LP universe without having to fly everywhere. Logistics is a key benefit.
ILPA is quite unique. You guys are best in class in terms of getting us in front of investors.
We can meet with prospective investors efficiently. It saves us multiple days of travelling around the world and we can stay in front of this group even when off cycle.
Our schedule was fantastic. Thanks again for another great event.
Excellent job on the conference, everything went smoothly. Overall, we liked the quality of our schedule and the level of professionals that we met.
