Piper Jaffray (NYSE: PJC) will host its 32 nd annual Consumer Conference on June 5-6 in New York. Industry participants and investors will hear from 65 of the industry’s highest profile retailers, footwear, apparel, accessories, home, beauty, restaurants, food processors and distributors, and leisure/entertainment companies. "Piper Jaffray has a longstanding commitment to the consumer industry and this is evidenced by the strong participation by key growth companies across all sectors," said Jeff Klinefelter, senior research analyst and director of research at Piper Jaffray. "We expect very strong attendance at the conference again this year due in part to global macroeconomic uncertainties and the resulting volatility across the consumer sector."
