Allow me to talk my own book for a second.
There is NO SALT conference this year, meaning a lost opportunity for hedgies and celebs to sit by a pool in Vegas with a stiff drink and talk about life. Instead, the event's annual master of ceremonies -- aka "The Mooch" will focus on extending his 30 minutes of post Trump fame with various media appearances. With all due respect to the Sohn conference, the speaker lineup wasn't that hot. How many more times are Jeff Gundlach quotes going to be worth the write-up -- the alleged new "bond king" is doing a fair amount of interviews these days.
Just keeping it real here people.
So where will the real action be for institutional and sophisticated investors (and those media folk in attendance) on the conference scene this spring? TheStreet's sister publication The Deal's annual "Corporate Governance: Understanding the Changing Agenda" will be lighting up financial media's Twitter feed and Bloomberg terminals when it's held on June 7.
Check out some headliners that will be in attendance:
- TheStreet's founder Jim Cramer
- Elliott Management's Paul Singer (The Deal's Ron Orol did a fun profile of Singer here)
- Trian Fund Management's Nelson Peltz
- Macy's (M) CEO Jeff Gennette
- Qualcomm (QCOM) CEO Steve Mollenkopf (yes, we got him -- and have always enjoyed talking with him)
- Panera Bread founder Ron Shaich (having known Ron for some time, I can tell you what he will be talking about will be news-making)
