Attendance Qualifiers
The Strategic Acquirer Summit is ACG’s inaugural push to meet the unique needs of executives within this dynamic group. Corporate development officers will find additional growth opportunities for their companies and potential acquisitions within the middle market at the Summit.

Corporate development dealmakers play a pivotal role in the strategic revenue growth of firms. Job titles and responsibilities may vary, but they all engage in business development, strategic partnerships, acquisitions, and divestitures.

The summit is open to corporate executives whose primary responsibilities relate to corporate development; including strategy, deal origination, valuation, negotiation, and post-acquisition integration.
