IPEM is more than just a conference. We are the only private markets tradeshow in Europe, using a unique floorplan which sets us apart from the rest of the conference industry. Held at the world-famous Palais des Festivals – venue of choice for the Cannes Film Festival, MIPIM, and the Cannes Lions – next Sept. 20/21/22, against a backdrop offering panoramic views of the iconic French Riviera, it is the ideal setting for private market practitioners to inspire, debate, and effect positive change in the industry.
With over 600 LPs, 550 GPs and 400 Advisors & Business Service Providers attending, we provide a fully contained environment for our 4,000 delegates to interact with peerless efficiency. Private Equity is no longer a ‘hush hush’ industry that confines itself to hotel meeting rooms. It is more open, more dynamic and more institutional than ever before. And it deserves a standout event that reflects as much!
Our growth story is testament to how popular IPEM has become. In 2016, we started with 40 booths and 52 exhibiting companies on one floor, ‘Riviera’, of the Palais des Festivals. In 2020 we extended it to two floors by adding the ‘Lerins’ floor. Never content to rest on our laurels, this year we’ve widened our vision for IPEM even further. Our 7th edition will celebrate the grand opening of the ‘Croisette’ floor. As our biggest tradeshow yet, it will provide 215,000 square feet (20,000 square meters) of exhibiting space, with 500 exhibiting companies located across the three floors.
Everything is contained within one dedicated space to create a unique global village for European private market practitioners.
Two conference rooms and two summit rooms will feature an array of industry experts debating the key challenges facing private markets today, while numerous lounges located next to food and beverage areas will provide easy opportunities to relax, network and make connections; all in the serenity of the French Riviera with boundless views of the turquoise Mediterranean to energize mind (and soul).
The IPEM experience is curated in such a way as to provide a virtuous circle.
GPs benefit from and enjoy the simplicity of holding business meetings in their own branded meeting booths, which allows them to present their firms in the best possible light. LPs appreciate the transparent LP-friendly design format. While some tradeshows can feel disorientating, we’ve gone to great lengths to ensure IPEM is easy to navigate so that no time is wasted. Everything is centred on interaction and relationship building. For Advisors and Business Service Providers, they have the chance to present their product solutions and industry expertise to a captive audience of GPs and LPs.
Our floorplan design encourages unexpected positive outcomes because it allows delegates to remain in the heart of the action at all times; everything is focused on transparency and network building in an authentic ‘global village’ community atmosphere.
Avoid the inconvenience of hiring hotel rooms to host meetings. We’ve customized our floorplan design so that our meeting booths provide an intimate, private setting to conduct business meetings. The end result is a highly efficient networking experience; one that allows GPs, Advisors and Business Service Providers to optimize their company brand and market themselves to as wide an audience as possible.
We offer three different booth formats, each of which provides an intimate meeting space.
All three booth formats are tailormade for GPs, Advisors & Business Providers. Everything is prepared in advance, removing the stress of having to organize and manage the construction process. There is no need to worry about furniture, or whether banners and logos are in the right place…the IPEM team handles it all.
