By title, the 170-person attendance list for Friday’s event is 22% C-Suite, 21% VP or director level business development people, and 16% managing director or partner, with leading procurement and category managers, institutional investors, analysts, strategists, consultants, bankers, legal professionals etc. rounding out the registration list.
