The 2018 Joint Ventures Conference

JV Leadership, Capability Building and Governance
APRIL 19 - 20, 2018 | NEW YORK MARRIOTT EAST SIDE | NEW YORK, NY

April 19 - 20, 2018

Challenges You May be Facing

Joint ventures have long been a strategic way for companies to innovate, enter new markets, and accelerate growth. But joint ventures are also exceedingly complex and can be difficult to execute well. While there is potential for great reward, there is also the possibility of greater risk. How can you make sure it will be worth the effort? 

About The Conference

The benefits of forming a joint venture are very enticing: access to new markets and distribution, shared risk and costs, and increased resources such as talent, technology, and finances. Whether you are new to the joint ventures arena or are reevaluating lessons learned from your own past efforts, this conference will provide insights and actionable steps for getting the most value from joint ventures—from partner selection to exit strategy. 

Join other growth-oriented organizations for an interactive experience where you will learn first-hand from companies that have successfully evolved their JV practices over time. An attendee of last year’s JV conference called this an “Inspirational learning environment.”
