Gold Coast Investment Showcase 2019 next week will feature ASX listed companies from a diverse range of sectors including resources, technology, biotechnology and oil & gas.
Organised by Vertical Events, the corporate investment conference will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 25 and 26, at Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa.
Putting together an investment conference with a program as diverse as the Gold Coast Investment Showcase, requires many years of work, and, in particular, industry confidence.
Vertical Events’ Business Development Manager Jaxon Crabb believes it has been the success of their specific sector events that has greatly assisted the growth of the all-sector Gold Coast conference.
He said: “The success of these events has provided us with a large pool of companies which is required to put together one of Australia’s only diversified investment conferences.
“Around five or six years ago we noticed this style of conference didn’t exist and we thought there is no better city to hold a pure investment conference than the Gold Coast.
"It is not often an investor can attend a conference and in the first session hear from a biotech company, into a tech company, followed by a resources company, then an education company, concluding with an investment fund and all of these companies are listed on the ASX.”

Gold Coast Investment Showcase 2019 will wrap up with a panel discussion titled ‘A diversified portfolio – the way ahead’ featuring Morgans investment adviser Stuart Mackenzie, Share Collective CEO Tyson Keen and investor guru Brian Leedman.
Jaxon Crabb added: “Our investors relish the diversity of this event as they feel as though they are not comparing company presentations against each other.
“It is difficult for this to occur at sector focused investment conferences when there are multiple companies exploring for the same commodity all presenting on the same day and the investors are trying to distinguish the key differences between the companies.
“Also, most importantly, it is the relaxed nature of the event and the audience demographic, mostly Gold Coast retirees, which all leads to this conference being one of our most enjoyable events.”
