What Our Pasts Guests Say
“This Whistler CEM event yielded the best trading ideas of any of the conferences I have done. I had 18 scheduled meetings and 4 unscheduled meetings and I came out with 12 buy ideas. Well worth my time to travel cross country!”
“The Whistler Capital Conference allowed me to view 18 companies quite closely in one day. The ability to meet face to face and discuss candidly allows me to feel comfortable in investing further.”
“As described often, speed dating with 15+ venture companies. Excellent way to understand many companies at once and get a real comparative view. The interview day is packed, a bit overwhelming, but very worthwhile.”
“The Whistler Capital Conference allows us to educate ourselves in an efficient manner. You meet some new companies or deepen the relationship with existing ones in a fast-comfortable setting.”
“I was really impressed with the selection of companies and quality of opportunities presented. The format was well thought out and had the right mix of meetings with social participation.”
“A great way to meeting the top entrepreneurs in Canada.”
“I thought the event was an excellent use of time. Investor attending the event were very well qualified.”
“The Whistler Capital Conference is very well run. We feel the speed dating format ensures you are making the most of the conference. The attendees were very qualified investors. Great Job Guys!”
“Outstanding conference I would highly recommend.”
“The Whistler Conference was well attended and very well organized. Socializing events and cocktails allow to strengthen relationship and meet additional contacts. Very pleased with the event, will recommend and attend again.”
“All attendees and investors we met with were germane to our business. This was a great forum for focused building of our network.”
“Capital Event delivers exactly what we are looking for: Direct conversations with qualified investors/advisors who can buy the stock. It's a full day of intense pitches, with just the right amount of socializing/networking to compliment the pitch sessions. We will be back!”
“The Capital Conference is the most efficient and focused investors conference available with a balance of professional meetings and casual networking.”
“An extremely well run and comfortable conference. A great atmosphere with lots of interest.”
“We have attended almost 10 different events and they are one of the only conferences where we actually see some immediate buying in the markets.”
"Once again the Capital Event team held a well structured Investment Conference (Whistler 2018) where all attendees derived some major benefits from the well attended event.”
“The Whistler Capital Conference 2020 proved to be an excellent venue for reaching out to new investors. It was a very comfortable venue with ample time to relax in addition to a well-planned meeting schedule. We found the investors to be very approachable and genuinely interested in hearing our story. A number of our best contacts were made during the networking and down times rather than the formal meetings. All in all it was a very well planned and executed conference.”
‘Whistler is the place to be after VRIC - Keen audience!”
“I usually don't believe attending conferences actually gain you any traction, this is absolutely not the case. It is a great opportunity to knock out 20 back to back meetings with quality investors looking for solid companies. I have already scheduled 10 follow up meetings since the event. Kudos to the CEM Team, they have this down to an art and science.”
