Maximizing EMERGING MANAGER FORUM / CTA EXPO

CTA EXPO LLC was established to provide a venue where Commodity Trading Advisors and Emerging Managers could meet potential capital sources and focus on issues that are crucial to growing their businesses in today’s changing economic and regulatory environment. Registrations have grown for our conference in Chicago from 140 in 2008 to 450 in 2019. Because CTA EXPO / Emerging Manager Forum conferences are one day conferences they have a heavy local attendance so each conference gives you the opportunity to meet new people.

The Chicago event will be our first virtual conference. It gives managers the opportunity to present their programs in a cost effective, virtual one on one setting to at least 20 capital sources, including asset allocators, pool operators, fund of funds, brokerage firms and professional clients.
