The EVCA Symposium is the event of the year for private equity’s stakeholders to look beyond day-to-day operations and exchange ideas that will shape the growth path of the industry. This is an unparalleled opportunity for private equity’s leaders to identify breakthrough strategies that will catapult the industry forward and solidify its position as a transforming economic force.


New Agenda Packed with Mission-Critical Content
The EVCA is dedicated to delivering the highest quality insight and analysis to propel the industry forward. As part of this commitment, this year’s Symposium will focus its content on bolstering the private equity industry’s position as a global influencer and change agent. Going beyond operational issues, this strategic program will hone in on the topics that will define the industry and impact economies for years to come:

  • Global Capital Markets: Mapping Out Certainty Amidst Change
  • Boosting Investor Appetite for Europe
  • Smart Cities, Smart Technology, Smart Society
  • Growth through Innovation & Entrepreneurship


Connect with Private Equity’s Stakeholders
The private equity world is comprised of its practitioners and the corporations it invests in, the public and private partners, its investors and the economies that it transforms. The 2014 program brings these stakeholders together to take a holistic approach to strategy development. Private equity insiders will rub elbows and exchange insight with influential thought leaders in finance, business and government.


Inspiring Leadership & Action
Encouraging the private equity industry to look beyond returns and recognize its role as a global influencer and agent for progress requires concrete examples and models for inspiration.
