ILPA Summit for GPs & Fund of Funds

Overview

GP registration is now closed and has reached capacity for 2024.

You may reach out to [email protected] to indicate your interest as a past participant or new GPs may submit an application for a future event.

The ILPA Summit is known as a must-attend, vital industry event – a forum where private equity professionals come to develop, build, and maintain long-term relationships. Qualified GPs and engaged LPs are scheduled to meet based on optimized preferences to ensure productive and mutually beneficial meetings. ILPA uses a proprietary algorithm created specifically for this event to match investment preferences and create custom meeting schedules. The three-day agenda also includes timely content sessions and networking. General Partner registration will be open early February and will be limited to 75 established managers and ~15 emerging managers.

Qualified GPs and engaged LPs are scheduled to meet based on optimized preferences to ensure productive and mutually beneficial meetings. ILPA uses a proprietary algorithm created specifically for this unique event and including a ranking system which is modified annually to continue improving attendee schedules.

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

GP Application Process

To ensure a diverse mix of GP participants, all registrants are qualified by the ILPA Summit Committee before registration is considered final. When applications are open, find the form on this page. Once approved, your organization will be added to the invitation list.

How do I confirm my participation?

To ensure a diverse mix of GP participants, all registrants are qualified by the ILPA Summit Committee before registration is considered final.

We will reopen applications for 2025 in late 2024 and if approved, you will be added to the invitation list.
Given the current fundraising environment, it is no surprise that the last few years we saw unprecedented demand and inbound inquiries for GP registration. Given the space constraints and requirement to provide a differentiated GP list that round out the participating LP’s interests, we unfortunately cannot accommodate all the interest we would like to.

Applying & Eligibility

Before you apply for the ILPA Summit, please take a moment to determine if the Summit events are a fit for you.

  • Are you an established manager or an Emerging Manager (raising a first or second fund or spinout of an existing fund)? Emerging Managers should apply for our Emerging Manager showcase. Established managers should apply for the main Summit here.
  • ILPA Summit events are not a fit for real estate-focused funds or real asset focused funds, very niche strategy focused funds or niche geographically focused funds are also typically not accepted for participation at the Summit as we need to ensure that there is a match with the mix of limited partner attendees.
  • The manager applications that are focused on private equity, buyout, growth, private credit, secondaries and some venture capital are more representative of the GP participants at the Summit. Applications for strategies outside of the ones listed are not a fit as we want to ensure that we can build out a full schedule for selected GP participants.
