Space is limited, and registration priority will be given to CEOs, serial search investors, and board members. The conference has very limited space for searchers who have raised capital and are conducting a search. As the conference is focused on CEOs and their advisors, it is not open to prospective searchers or those currently raising search capital. We will process registration requests on a bi-weekly basis starting July 1 until the conference reaches capacity.
