The Quoted Companies Alliance, the independent membership organisation that champions the interests of small to mid-size quoted companies, will stress the important role played by these growing businesses in driving economic recovery at its annual conference this year. The conference – Engineering Growth for Small and Mid-Size Quoted Companies – is taking place on 26 June 2013 in London at the Grange St Paul’s Hotel.
Building on the success of last year’s event, the conference will bring together companies, investors, and advisors to discuss the key issues affecting the sector, including what finance is available to fund growth, the investment strategies of small and mid-cap fund managers and how corporate governance can benefit companies’ development and growth plans.
The keynote speaker, Michael Fallon MP, Minister of State for Business and Enterprise, will be opening the day to let delegates know what the Government is doing to fuel the engines of growth and further promote equity as a financing option for growing companies. More speakers will be announced shortly that cover executives from successful small and mid-size quoted companies, policymakers, regulators and other experts.
There is no other one day event that focuses specifically on small and mid-size quoted companies and their opportunities for growth. Delegates get an exclusive opportunity to network with colleagues and peers in the small and mid-size quoted company sector and meet politicians, investors and regulators. It also provides company directors with an opportunity to share experiences and reach out to the business media.
The Engineering Growth for Small and Mid-Size Quoted Companies event is supported by leading professional firms in the small and mid-size quoted company sector. The headline sponsors are accountants Crowe Clark Whitehill LLP and market makers Winterflood Securities Ltd. The supporting sponsor is YouGov plc.
Tim Ward, Chief Executive of the Quoted Companies Alliance, comments: “Our conference connects the whole sector – companies, investors, advisors, policymakers, regulators and more – to debate the key issues that matter to small and mid-size quoted companies and their success. We aim to show the influence and potential of our sector and get the Government and others to take action to fuel growth.”
