Connection Point: Inside Baird’s Investor Conferences

Conference Attendees
For more than 45 years, Baird has hosted institutional investor conferences in major markets across the U.S. and Europe. We pride ourselves on connecting leading companies with institutional investors in a premier forum for sharing insights and networking with industry leaders.

Today, Baird hosts three core conferences as well as additional specialty events. Our Equity Capital Markets platform works in concert to host premier events devoted to a number of Baird’s industry verticals. We strive to host value-added events for attendees, with benefits including:

  • Premier mix of attendees – Our conferences attract prominent small-, mid- and large-cap companies who are drawn to the unique opportunity to connect with current investors, future shareholders and key industry decision makers. In turn, the quality of participating companies attracts many institutional investors, including portfolio managers, buy-side analysts and private investors.

  • Quality networking with industry leaders and decision makers – The diversity of attendees and quality of the conference prompts many participating companies to send C-level executives, presidents and other senior leaders. As such, company leaders gain unique opportunities to meet with current shareholders and cultivate new investors through top money managers and analysts.

  • Firsthand sector insights – Attendees have the opportunity to hear from the business minds that move today’s markets. Their business commentary is complemented by company and sector insights from Baird’s award-winning senior research analysts.1

  • Tailored conference format – Our conferences are structured to enable presenting companies and attending investors to connect in the way that best suits their unique objectives. Companies conduct formal or fireside chat-style presentations. Afterward, they may also connect with attendees in 1-1 meetings arranged by Baird’s Global Corporate Access team.
