About the Conference

We are delighted to announce the return of the 14th Independent Sponsors Summit on February 2-3, 2023 in sunny Miami, Florida! We are expecting this to be our best event ever and new for this year’s program is the first-ever Inaugural Independent Sponsor Awards


How do you continue to find and execute on quality deals as the market faces high inflation, raising interest rates and a tightening debt market, uncertainty as to a looming recession and labour shortages? Despite headwinds, 2022 has been another strong year in activity for the M&A market and financial sponsors, but what does 2023 hold? Independent Sponsors and Capital Providers need to continue to find quality, well-priced deals, so how do you navigate the choppy waters ahead? Prepare to be informed and benchmark best practices in a two-day program featuring expert-led panels, interactive roundtables, workshops and over 10 hours of unrivalled networking opportunities and one-on-one meetings.  


We have worked alongside our advisory board of industry leaders to ensure this two-day event contains an expanded and meticulously crafted program with more 1x1 meeting time than any previous iGlobal Forum event. With more unmissable content than ever before, this is the go-to destination event for the Independent Sponsors (IS) and Capital Providers (CP) Community.


In recognition of the immense talents and contributions of this industry’s movers and shakers and high achievers, the end of Day 1 will showcase the exciting launch of our Inaugural Awards Ceremony. The nomination process is open to all; please visit our awards page to find out more.


To be held alongside a cocktail reception, the Awards Ceremony will be a prime opportunity to come together and recognise the amazing achievements of your industry.


We expect a fully sold out event. We look forward to seeing you there!
