BOSTON, Aug. 4 /CNW/ - Canaccord Genuity is pleased to announce the line-up for its 30th Annual Growth Conference, a premier investment forum for innovative small and mid-cap growth companies from the US, Canada, and the UK. The Boston-based conference demonstrates Canaccord Genuity's focus on bringing institutional investors some of the most interesting and actionable ideas from a growing, global universe of small and mid-cap companies. At the conference, institutional and private investors, as well as venture capitalists, are provided with the opportunity to speak directly with the management teams of over 300 public and private companies.

"For thirty years investors have gained valuable insight into growth companies and have benefitted from investment opportunities from our Growth Conference," noted Paul Reynolds, President and CEO of Canaccord Financial Inc. "The popularity of the conference is testament to the quality and range of companies showcased at the event. It is an important forum for many emerging businesses and the investors who see potential in their growth."

"Our 30th Annual Growth conference will be of particular interest to investors given the recent market volatility" said Jamie Brown, President and Head of US Investment Banking, Canaccord Genuity Inc. "This week will provide investors access to growth companies whose prospects and track records can be reflected in their share price, regardless of market conditions."

The key sectors represented at this year's conference reflect the industries followed by Canaccord Genuity's global research team: technology, life sciences, real estate, consumer, sustainability and infrastructure. More than 240 small and mid-cap growth companies will be presenting at the conference, along with over 50 selective companies at the Private Company Showcase.

A number of in-depth "Knowledge Sessions" will also explore important industry themes, changes and trends. These panels will be comprised of industry experts, Canaccord research analysts, and venture capital professionals. Most of the presenting public companies are covered by Canaccord Genuity's global team of equity analysts.
