Monitor Extends Early Bird Deadline for 50th Anniversary Event, Converge
APR 3, 2023 - 6:56 am
Monitor has extended the deadline for early bird registration for Converge, the equipment finance industry leading publication’s two-day 50th anniversary event, to 11:59 p.m. EST on April 3. While the original deadline was set for March 31, Monitor decided to provide a few extra days for equipment finance professionals to capitalize on discounted pricing for the once-in-a-lifetime conference and celebration.
“Between constant travel for several notable industry events and the closing of the first quarter, we know that the last few weeks have been a busy time for many in our industry,” Lisa Rafter, publisher of Monitor, said. “But we also know how incredible this event will be and want to ensure everyone can get the great deal being offered for early registrants.”
Early bird registration is available here. Discounted pricing will no longer be available after 11:59 p.m. EST on April 3, although registration will remain open after the early bird deadline. Act now to reserve your spot, as space is limited.
Scheduled for June 14 and June 15 in Philadelphia, Converge is an immersive two-day experience that will kick off with a welcome reception at the rooftop bar at Kimpton Hotel Monaco, which features stunning views of the City of Brotherly Love from its perch in the very heart of the historical Independence Hall neighborhood.
The welcome reception will serve as a warm-up for a wholly unique full-day conference on June 15. Featuring a keynote address from respected public speaker, futurist and best-selling author John Hagel, the day-long event will be unlike any conference in the equipment finance industry’s history, as speakers and attendees will collaborate to discuss and design the future of equipment finance across multiple panel discussions and breakout workshops.
To cap off the two-day event, Monitor will host an awards ceremony and gala at the National Constitution Center on June 15 to celebrate not only the publication’s 50-year anniversary, but the entire history of the equipment finance industry. The gala will include a special talk from Brian Lee, co-founder and CEO of Arena Club, LegalZoom and The Honest Company, as well as exhibits showcasing the industry’s growth, a cocktail reception and plated dinner, and an awards ceremony honoring the legends who built the industry, the trailblazers who have made a difference and the future leaders who will carry the torch into tomorrow.
