Private Equity Marketplace

M&A East attendees have the opportunity walk the Private Equity Marketplace exhibit floor and connect in a dedicated environment with 90+ PE firms with $125 billion to invest in middle market deals.

To enhance your networking, use the mobile app (launching in October) to search for PE firms investing in your industry or geography. Each PE firm's table sign will include their top industries in which they invest.
