ILPA Summit Celebrating its 12th anniversary this year, the ILPA Summit kick-started 2016 by filling the 40 General Partner spots available for early registration in a record breaking 10 hours, solidifying it as a “must attend” event. Attendees also reached record numbers again this year, with over 600 LPs, GPs and sponsors registered. Survey results showed that attendees were overwhelmingly pleased with their meeting schedules, reinforcing the value of our unique matchmaking system. Recognizing that the General Partners who regularly attend the Summit tend to be of a larger fund size, and responding to feedback from members about reaching smaller funds, the ILPA introduced the Emerging Manager Show- case in 2016. To qualify as an emerging manager for this event, the GP had to be raising a first or second fund, with a size of under $1 billion. As with the Summit, interested managers had to apply to participate, and applications were reviewed by a committee of LPs actively investing in this space. The show- case was oversubscribed, and twelve managers were selected to participate in the inaugural event. The showcase was a resounding success, with over 75% of LPs attending. Additionally, the emerging managers indicated that it was a productive use of their time and they were impressed with the high quality of the ILPA membership. Based on the success of this showcase, we will once again feature emerging managers in 2017. As we begin to shape the event this coming year in our new home, the Sheraton New York, Times Square, we look forward to continuing to facilitate connections and relationship building at this hallmark ILPA event.
