Qualified GPs and engaged LPs are scheduled to meet based on optimized preferences to ensure productive and mutually beneficial meetings.

The three-day agenda also includes timely content sessions and networking. General Partner registration will be open early February and will be limited to 85 established managers and ~15 emerging managers.

Will the events be live or virtual?
At this time, ILPA is planning for live Summit events in 2022 and is following industry and gathering guidance closely. We will have alternative virtual plans for the event in place if needed. In either format, you can expect the same high quality, efficient experience you have come to know and to count on for the last 17 years. By registering in advance, you are securing your participation for either scenario, however we will delay invoicing all registrations until we get closer to the event in case of a format change.
  • Exclusive Access to the world’s most powerful LPs
  • More 1X1 meeting timeslots with flexible timing
  • Updated ranking system and SummitMatch program
  • Face-to-face (in-person) or video meetings
  • Small group socials and networking- coffee and cocktails

2020 Highlights

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

Applications are now being accepted for the 2022 event.

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.
