Drawing on data and insight from across 451 Research, the Tech M&A Summit maps many of the major developments in the IT landscape to how those influence corporate strategy, both in terms of organic and inorganic growth. The event also extends the discussion to the all-important topic of valuations, looking at how technology adoption rates and spending plans shape pricing in investments and acquisitions and, ultimately, determine the return on those transactions. The flagship event attracts about 100 senior-level members of the tech M&A community, including executives at many of the most-active financial and corporate acquirers, entrepreneurs and board members from many of the most-promising startups as well as top-tier VCs and investment bankers. In addition to analysis of trends in the overall tech M&A and VC markets, the event also features specific forecasts for deal-making in several enterprise IT markets, including information security, software, mobility and the quickly emerging IoT segment.
The Palo Alto event has already attracted 160+ senior-level members of the tech M&A community, including senior executives from many of the most active acquirers, leaders from many of the most promising startups, and top-tier VCs.
