Expand Your Network, Supercharge Your Strategy, and Get Deals Done.

We’re very excited to bring you our 9th Annual PartnerConnect West. This year our PartnerConnect West “event of events” will return with our core Buyouts West (9th year) and Venture Alpha West (6th year), as well as our fourth Private Real Estate Summit West.

As always, the events are curated by the editors Buyouts Magazine, Venture Capital Journal and We’ll have over 60 panels, over 500 delegates, over 150 limited partners, and over 300 fund managers, bankers, lenders and intermediaries, from across the private markets value chain.

We’ll also anticipate hosting our usual 400+ 1:1 bespoke private meetings amongst our delegates in our private meetings ExecConnect program. Terrific additional features at this year’s event include our LP Dinner and our DealMaker’s Dinner,

This was my first ExecConnect event and it far exceded my expectations. The event was extremely well organized. The meetings were of the highest quality and we left with a number of great follow up meetings with high quality LPs. I am extremely happy with the result and I highly encourage others to take advantage of this very efficient process to connect with LPs.
- Cody Church, TriWest Capital (GP)

A well run conference with a lot of content, excellent speakers and just the right mix of quality GPs and LPs. I have been every year for 3 years and look forward to attending again next year.
- Catharine Burkett, LCG Associates
