The film industry has Sundance, technology has the Consumer Electronics Show, and the world of investor relations has the NIRI Annual Conference. More than 1,000 IR practitioners attend what is considered the preeminent IR event of the year, and 2015 will be no exception with a dynamic lineup of panelists, myriad stimulating topics, and the rare opportunity to sing “Kumbaya” with fellow IR folks.

Evan Pondel will serve as a panelist for the workshop session entitled “Social media: Friend or Foe for Reaching Target Audiences?” Joining him is Beth Blankespoor, professor of accounting at Stanford University, Nils Paellmann, head of investor relations at T-Mobile, and Serena Ehrlich, director of social and evolving media at BusinessWire.
Evan will also be moderating a panel entitled “Engaging Financial Media, Trade Publications, and Bloggers to Enhance an Investor Relations Program.” Joining Evan is Peter Frost, business reporter from Crain’s, Paul Hart, editor of Midstream Business magazine, and Guy Cohen, director at Seeking Alpha.
The conference runs June 14 to June 17 at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago. For more information, please visit www.niri.org.
