“During the pandemic, many people said New York would never be the same. We brought SALT back home in 2021 to be part of its comeback,” said John Darsie, Managing Director of SALT. “We love this city and can’t wait to host thousands of business leaders for great conversations, networking and experiences in September.”
SALT New York 2021, an evolution of the legacy SALT Conference held in Las Vegas for a decade, drew 2,500 attendees and nearly 1,000 asset allocators. Keynote speakers included New York City Mayor Eric Adams, White House chief of staff Ron Klain and leading investors including Ray Dalio, Steve Cohen, Daniel Loeb and Mike Novogratz. It was the first event ever held at the new Javits Center Expansion after its $1.5 billion buildout that added 200,000 square feet of new meeting room and pre-function space, including a 54,000 square-foot special event space.
As with last year’s event, the venue is equipped with advanced safety protocols, including sanitation stations, new high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA-grade) filters and CO2 sensors to adjust ventilation rates based on occupancy.
SALT iConnections Asia
SALT is also reviving its annual Asia event, returning to Singapore at the Marina Bay Sands, this time in partnership with iConnections. iConnections’ capital introductions platform and app will make the event the largest investor networking conference of the region. SALT Asia was last hosted in 2012 and 2013. Those interested in attending can sign up to receive more information here; more details about registration and the agenda will be released later this summer.
“SALT convenes the brightest minds—from young founders to legacy financial institutions—working on innovative ideas that are shaping the world,” said Darsie. “We continue to expand our event and content offerings every single year, and couldn’t be more excited to get back to Singapore.”
“iConnections and SALT bring together the most important investors, decision-makers and entrepreneurs,” said iConnections CEO Ron Biscardi. “Our platform and app are already the technology of choice for leading brands in the industry, and we look forward to further expanding our partnership with SALT.
