How does the event work?

The Emerging Manager Showcase will feature up-and-coming managers for LP attendees to meet in carefully coordinated group sessions running simultaneously with the main ILPA Summit Europe event on April 25-26. Each manager has an exclusive meeting with LPs during 40-minute periods, offering a deeper dive meeting opportunity.  Your ILPA Summit experience includes two days of content, networking events and a custom meeting schedule based on your preferences.

An Unparalleled Experience for Up-and-Coming Managers

  • Exclusive access to the world’s most powerful LPs
  • 1X1 scheduled meeting time slots with face-to-face meetings in addition to plenty of ad-hoc networking
  • The ILPA uses a sophisticated matching tool to generate meetings based on mutual interest that will create a personalized meeting itinerary
  • All LP attendees are high-quality, accredited institutional investors
  • Compelling content and multiple opportunities to engage with fellow PE professionals over coffee and cocktails
  • 80% of participating GPs participating in the November Summit made anywhere from 4-8 new relationships while the remaining 20% can attribute 9+ new relationships to this year’s Summit
  • Long-time Summit participants attribute multiple commitments and re-ups based on their participation at the Summit

EM Showcase Application

Emerging Manager applications will be accepted December 1 through February 1, 2024.

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.

How do Emerging Managers attend?

To be considered for the showcase, all potential managers must submit an application form.  Managers are then reviewed and qualified during an application process by a committee of LPs active and interested in this space, to ensure a diverse and broad group of managers.

Please submit an application using the form on this page.
