Networking & Special Events

Hundreds of Connections

Developing relationships with international, high-level professionals across the industry is an important aspect of the OffshoreAlert Conference, which attracts influential, wealthy and well-connected representatives from the private and public sectors in multiple onshore and offshore jurisdictions who have an interest in OFCs.

Turn to your right and you might be speaking with the head of the IRS' offshore programs and initiatives or the Head of Tax at the OECD, turn to your left and you might be able to engage a leading offshore provider in a conversation about how to legally minimize your taxes. Somewhere in the crowd could be someone whose assets you are trying to locate or an offshore commercial court judge before whom you might have to argue a legal case.

The OffshoreAlert Conference includes over 10 hours of structured and unstructured networking events and, unlike other conferences, access to all of these events are included in the price of your ticket.  Click here to learn more on ticketing and registration.
