taken on a truly global aspect and now attracts over 500 hedge fund
specialists, end investors and advisors from around the world and 80-plus
highly respected speakers from Europe, Asia, the Caribbean and North America.

    Tony Sanfelice, President of CHW says, "Our event, which has been growing
tremendously every year and has been attracting the largest crowds in Canada
has become one of the largest alternative investment events in North America.
The growth in consumer awareness of hedge funds and other alternative
investments, and in capital committed to these areas has created the need for
a major alternative investment conference such as ours. The tremendous
interest level in this subject area has allowed us to build on the success of
prior Summits."
