As an investor I have always preferred the single presentation mining conference where the entire audience hears the presentation, and then the speakers are available during the breaks and lunch to answer specific questions from people that found their presentation of interest.


Sadly, most conferences have changed to the one to one meeting style, meaning that despite there being, say, 250 investors and 120 companies, there is a natural limit of around 10 meetings per day that can reasonably take place, meaning that majority of the companies fail to engage with most of the investors.


GMF’s niche is they have retained the original one presentation to the entire audience format, meaning all the companies engage with all the investors, in a single presentation.  It may be old fashioned, but it’s effective.


The packed room at this conference suggests they’re a lot of people that prefer this format, and the networking sessions were particularly vibrant.
