Canadian Investment Awards Extends Early Bird Ticket Pricing Until November 5th

    TORONTO, Oct. 15 /CNW/ - The Canadian Investment Awards and Gala,
Canada's premier awards program recognizing excellence in the financial
services industry, announced today an extension for the purchase of early bird
tickets. In response to numerous requests from past winners and attendees, the
Canadian Investment Awards and Gala has decided to push back the early bird
ticket deadline to November 5th.
    "The recent turmoil in the markets has demanded additional time and focus
from the investment community", said Sabine Steinbrecher, CEO, Canadian
Investment Awards Inc. "We are sensitive to the fact that firms are
concentrating on their clients through this period of volatility and hope that
by pushing back our deadline we will give our regular attendees and nominees,
particularly from the smaller firms, the time they need to take advantage of
our discounted pricing."
    The gala has sold out for thirteen years in a row so this change in the
deadline does not guarantee that everyone can be accommodated. Included in the
ticket price, among other things, are pre-event cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, a
gourmet dinner and the presentation of the awards. Festivities will be held at
The Fairmont Royal York on the evening of December 3rd, 2008.
