Emerald’s team will be joined by noted economist Joel Naroff and senior executives from companies that exemplify the trends identified by Emerald and who will provide insights on the state of their industries and sectors. Doug Lebda, Founder and CEO of LendingTree, will provide the opening keynote address and GSV Capital Chairman and CEO Michael Moe will wrap-up the event with the evening address.
The Groundhog Day Investment Forum will be held on Thursday, February 2nd at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. “We say that the investment year begins in earnest with our annual Forum,” said Emerald CEO and Founder Joseph E. Besecker. “2017 ushers in a year of political upheaval and evolving economic expectations, increasing the relevance and importance of presentations from corporate leaders and our team of analysts and portfolio managers,” he said.
The first Emerald Groundhog Day Investment Forum was held in 1994 and has grown to become a definitive kick-off conference for investors focusing on small- and mid-cap companies. This year senior executives from several public and private companies and Emerald are scheduled to present. “Our investment team is constantly on the road – meeting with companies, their customers, competitors and suppliers,” said Emerald Director of Research Joseph W. Garner. “This in-depth, on-site research is vital in identifying key trends and opportunities in the year ahead, and the Groundhog Forum is a unique chance to interact with and learn from our team,” he said.
