M&A Next Symposium
Join us on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 in Las Vegas for this highly interactive, day-long “conference-in-a-conference” which takes place during the Elevate AEC Conference.
What is M&A Next?
Mergers and Acquisitions can be one of the most effective strategies firms deploy to achieve growth, improve profitability, acquire talent, and – ultimately – realize value.
Sellers are at an all-time high in the AEC market, do you know what that means for your firm? Reserve your seat at the table as Zweig Group thought leaders share insights, dispel myths, and present “next” practices in the world of M&A.
This highly interactive day-long “conference-in-a-conference” takes place Wednesday, October 2, in Las Vegas as a pre-event to Zweig Group’s Elevate AEC Conference (formerly the Hot Firm A/E Industry Awards Conference).
