Events : Acquire or Be Acquired Conference

Conference Highlights

When Bank Director first introduced its Acquire or Be Acquired Conference, some 15,000 banks operated in the United States. While that number has shrunk considerably, the inverse holds true for the importance of this annual event. For our silver anniversary, we put together an expanded agenda with a bank’s entire team in mind – from strategic discussions around successful mergers, organic growth and building your bank’s value to in-depth examinations of digital strategies and innovations, this conference was created for ALL banks – no matter their size – looking to grow.
