Rolling the Dice on Vegas to Bring the Alts Industry Back Together Post-Pandemic

The luxurious hotels. The casinos. The live entertainment. The fine dining. The Rat Pack.

All of these things, and more, come to mind when many people think of Las Vegas. This glamorous desert metropolis has been one of the top destinations for industry conferences and trade shows for over 25 years. Anyone who’s been to Vegas knows why—it’s warm, it’s sunny, it’s luxurious, and it’s fun.

In-person engagement with asset managers is a crucial part of due diligence and sourcing for institutional investors that allocate to alternative investments—and where better to facilitate these meetings than Las Vegas? That’s why we at AltsAxis chose to hold our inaugural conference for allocators, asset managers, and other parties comprising the alts space in Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, and Frank Sinatra’s desert playground.

The very first VegasAXIS summit, scheduled for May 11-13, 2022 at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, will serve as a venue where allocators can sit down with asset managers to learn more about the alternative investment strategies they are considering, and help asset managers understand their investment objectives and outlooks.

We understand that, while real-time, accurate, and clean data on a broad spectrum of alternative investment strategies in one place (our mobile-first AXIS Platform) is extremely helpful for allocators, virtual and in-person engagement with the asset managers behind those alt approaches remains a necessary component of the sourcing process. VegasAXIS attendees will be able to meet with each other in a glamorous, sunny setting—and won’t be forced to sit through endless sessions and speakers before getting down to the nitty gritty of alts investing.

We will harness the extensive industry data available on our platform to optimize the VegasAXIS experience, targeting and identifying the right people for attendees to meet with during their stay. Time is precious for the members of the alternative investment universe, and our data-driven insights will enable us to fill VegasAXIS attendees’ schedules with only the most relevant and beneficial meetings for their businesses. This enhanced productivity will also give attendees plenty of time to enjoy the sights, sounds, and gourmet meals of Vegas.
