Event History

The SuperReturn Global Series

The world-renowned SuperReturn series has been running for over a decade and its events are now well established as global must attend Private Equity and Venture Capital conferences, attracting over 5000 delegates annually worldwide.

It was out of the huge success of SuperReturn International, launched in 1998 - the global flagship private equity conference - that Super Return Asia, Middle East, US, Emerging Markets, China, Africa, Latin America and three SuperInvestors have been launched. Each of these events have been created in response to the demand from LPs and GPs for the opportunity to unpick some of the more geographically specific issues within private equity. Each launch event has been a huge success, with continued growth in their investor and delegate base every year.

Now in its seventh year, SuperReturn U.S. was launched in 2008 to wide acclaim. In 2013 the event attracted over 450 attendees, including 180 LPs, and we are looking forward to growing this number in 2014.

SuperReturn offers delegates an unsurpassed level of networking with the most well-respected industry heavyweights from across the globe.

The world-renowned SuperReturn International (www.icbi-superreturn.com) was launched 15 years ago and has been growing annually to attract over 1500 private equity executives.
