  • “It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Linda and her team as a sponsor. I would go so far as to say it is one of the best sponsor experiences I have had while at Invest Northern Ireland. Linda has ensured that all of Gridley’s events are high quality for us by acting as a concierge, making targeted introductions to high growth company CEOs who need a solution to scale.  I am more than happy to speak to anyone who is considering a sponsorship of Gridley’s events.”

    Michelle Healy, former Associate Vice President, Invest Northern Ireland

  • “The Gridley conference simply is one of the best-organized conferences out there if you are interested in diving deep into the information, marketing services and transaction processing industries.

The Gridley Perspective:
Are We In A Tech Bubble?

2014 Trends in AdTech, eCommerce & Mobile Panel

End of Day Panel: Key Predictions for 2014 and Beyond

The Gridley Conference is the way that over 400 senior executives, lenders and investors across the information services landscape kick-off their year. Attendees come to this “invitation only” event from all around the country to listen to leading private company presentations and relevant industry panels to uncover exciting new trends and investment opportunities across our targeted industry sectors. As with the past few years, our 2014 event will have a particular focus on “All Things Digital”: AdTech, Ecommerce, Mobile, Payments, Social, Big Data, Shopper Marketing, Marketing Software and more! In addition to our new venue at The Westin New York Grand Central this year’s Conference will feature a new conference app to make networking even easier.

The Gridley Conference is unique. Most conferences hosted by other investment banks feature public companies presenting to an audience consisting primarily of institutional investors. And, industry trade shows are more “mass” audience focused events with the typical attendees being there for sales and marketing purposes. The Gridley Conference differentiates itself as a more senior, personalized event where CEOs of private companies can network with senior executives from public companies and private equity decision makers. Some like to refer to the Conference as “M&A Shopping on Steroids”.
