Who should attend?

Portfolio managers, traders, allocators, wealth managers, quantitative system developers, and research analysts – both buy-side or sell-side. Presentations are aimed for a professional audience with certain assumed knowledge of the industry. However, the tenure of attendees is extremely diverse, ranging from associates in their first few years to industry veterans with decades of experience.

How many other attendees will there be?

The MTA Symposium is designed to be a dynamic learning environment enabling one-to-one and small group discussions amongst attendees and speakers as well as large format presentations and panel discussions where the MTA’s mobile technology allows a moderated Q&A even for keynote sessions. The number of attendees has increased each of the past 4 years. We expect roughly 300 total attendees.

Business attire is preferred for the kickoff on Wednesday evening and celebration Thursday night; business-casual attire is common at the conference and you can expect a professional learning and relaxed networking environment over the two days.
