On June 18, ACG Boston welcomed over 500 dealmakers from across the country to the historic Cyclorama in Boston’s South End for the inaugural DealFest Northeast, replete with new twists on classic ACG networking events.
In place of the traditional ACG Capital Connection® format, attendees enjoyed New England craft beers and select wines provided by the top Boston-based private equity and investment banking firms, which co-hosted the event. Surrounded by facades of famous landmarks like Fenway Park’s Green Monster, Mike’s Pastry, L Street Tavern and a replica Cheers bar, the high-energy event was a true Boston experience. Live Irish music and locally inspired food, including a roving seafood cart and Boston cream pies for dessert, enhanced
The following day, the reinvented DealSource® Select was presented to private equity professionals, investment bankers, select lenders, limited partners and, for the first time, corporate development professionals. Participants used a new software tool that gave them greater control over their schedules and meeting requests. As a result, a record-setting 700 meetings were pre-arranged among nearly 300 participants.
