Events : Acquire or Be Acquired Conference

Conference Overview

The Year Ahead
2021 continues to test all of us in ways we never imagined. It seems a new challenge awaits us at every turn.  While we planned to host business leaders in late January, the CDC recently warned that December 2020, and January & February 2021 might be the most difficult time in the public health history of this nation. Accordingly, we are postponing the premier M&A banking event for CEOs, senior executives and board members until January 30-February 1, 2022.

Connect With Key Decision Makers
For over 26 years, we have hosted the Acquire or Be Acquired Conference in Arizona the week before the NFL held the Super Bowl. While the events of 2020 and 2021 threw a wrench into these plans, we are eager and excited to welcome men and women from across the country back to Arizona. Regardless of where one’s bank falls on the buy, sell or remain independent spectrum, the 2022 Acquire or Be Acquired Conference helps bank CEOs, executives and board members plan for what’s ahead.

Focused On Strategy + Growth
As in years past, Acquire or Be Acquired is an event focused on key board-level issues, such as understanding short- and long-term risks, evaluating opportunities for transactions and reviewing compensation plans. In addition, we look ahead at the strength of the economy, explore paths to creating greater shareholder value and how the competitive landscape continues to evolve. Event highlights include:

  • Strategic Merger Considerations
  • Organic Growth Initiatives
  • Modernizing a Bank’s Technologies
  • Buying Assets & Capabilities
  • Navigating the Competitive Environment
  • M&A Opportunities

Addressing Rapid Market Changes
With many seeking out new growth opportunities, we dedicate sessions to developing new digital offerings quickly and effectively. From data insight to technology integration, digital growth strategies to new core opportunities, advances in artificial intelligence to cleaner user experiences, we show how to create the right type of interactions and touchpoints with a bank’s customers.

Unrivaled Networking Opportunities
This conference provides senior leadership teams with numerous opportunities to network with peers that share an interest in exploring financial growth opportunities, strategic initiatives and business partnerships. Officers and directors from public and private financial institutions, leading fintech professionals, senior partners from law firms, top investment bankers, accounting partners, management consultants and investors comprise the audience that convenes in Arizona each year.
