About The Event

Please join us for our Next Level Virtual Conference on March 11th – 12th, 2021.

Reaching the 1-year mark of the Pandemic, we will take a deep dive into where we are today, and the year ahead.  Our thought leaders will present their views followed by data vendor responses based on alpha.  We take it a step further to fuel the alternative and external data conversations as never before.

In addition, we address the tech aspects of creating your best data stack with both data mapping and developing an optimal  data platform. 

With our Next Level topics, we go beyond the previous year by amplifying the voices of our experts, data vendors, and technical engineers.    

As always, our speakers are world class industry experts and we will also feature 3 signature events.

  • Our 1-1 meetings are now even more convenient as we are offering bookings before, during and after the conference. 
  • We created 3 events specifically designed for buyers and data provider to connect:  “Fresh Features” and “Alpha Capture”  and “Vendors New To Market (clients only).”
