PESS 2010 

The Private Equity Software and Service Provider Seminar

29 June 2010 at the Renaissance Chancery Court, London

The PESS 2010 event took place on 29th June in London and received extremely positive feedback from delegates and sponsors alike. 

With nearly 160 delegates from almost 100 private equity houses, attendance was 35% ahead of 2009.  The event also attracted an excellent mix of delegates as shown here:

The event's main aim was to showcase the quality and depth of software and services available to private equity houses.  Based on our survey feedback (completed by over 90 delegates) this objective was firmly met.  We asked delegates whether they agreed with a number of statements about the event.  A few highlights are reproduced here:

50% of respondents agreed that the quality of software/services on display was higher than expected.  Only 7% disagreed.  That's a favourable ratio of 7:1.

50% agreed that the event had increased the likelihood that they would invest in the products.  Only 5% disagreed.

Over 75% of survey respondents agreed that they would follow up with at least one of the vendors.

Thank you for arranging it. It's a very informative event; without it gathering the same information on the software available for PE would take months. I found the stands and the presentations very useful. Keep up the good work!
