With DealFest scheduled for the middle of June, the ACG Boston board has been monitoring the current situation in Massachusetts and across the country the last several weeks, to help inform our decision on how to proceed. With still so much uncertainty about the next 3-6 months, it has become clear to us that we will not be able to safely deliver the in person experience that is so important to this event, so we have made the difficult decision to cancel DealFest Northeast for 2020.
We remain committed to helping you drive business and source deals, so while the full DealFest event will not be rescheduled this year, we are working on alternative virtual programming to help you maintain the connections and conversations important to your business, and once the country begins to open up again, hosting smaller, in person events that are more flexible and appropriate for the times. And next spring, when things are back to business as usual, we can't wait to host a bigger and better DealFest 2021!
We will continue to update you on upcoming programming for 2020 as it comes together, but please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support of ACG Boston and we hope you are all staying well and safe!
DealFest Northeast is the largest and most significant M&A event in the northeast, bringing together more than 700 key deal professionals from across the country – capital providers, intermediaries, and corporates – for two days of efficient and dynamic networking.
Attendees rely on DealFest Northeast – featuring DealFest on June 16 at The Cyclorama, and DealSource Select on June 17 at the Park Plaza Hotel – as a primary source for networking and deal flow every year.
It’s the most effective way to connect with New England’s top private equity and investment banking firms and middle-market M&A professionals to discover new partners, identify untapped sources of deal flow, and sample the region’s best craft beers amidst a lively brewery style atmosphere!
