Record attendance is projected for the third annual Faegre & Benson M&A Conference to be held October 22 at the Marriott City Center in Minneapolis. The event is cosponsored by The Deal LLC, a media company serving the global deal community.
With a specific focus on general, middle-market transactions, this year's conference has already drawn registrations from more than 250 M&A dealmakers and their advisors.
Bruce Engler, a partner in the Faegre & Benson corporate practice, says he believes the conference—which brings together nationally recognized leaders in tax, law, accounting and investment banking—is well aligned with current market conditions. "We believe our attendees are looking for practical information on doing deals, especially in today's challenging environment. Our distinguished panelists will discuss prevailing market conditions and valuations, as well as current trends in M&A transactions," says Engler.
Panel discussions will cover a variety of M&A-related business and legal topics, including international considerations, valuation trends and tax planning. In addition to featuring M&A leaders in their fields, panels will include members of the media and representatives from companies such as 3M, Carlson Companies, UnitedHealth Care and Donaldson Company.
