"Research drawn from our May 5th conference reported that 17% of our attendees are not our targeted retail investor audience, but a growing base of institutional investors, media and other financial professionals," said Bradley H. Smith, CMO, MUNCmedia. "This constituency came from social media and untargeted activity."
"Now that we are aware of this professional engagement with RetailInvestorConferences.com, we feel it's time to be proactive towards Wall Street," continued Smith. "Our main goal remains to drive investor ears and eyeballs to our presenters' podium, no matter what street they work on."
Launched in November 2010, RetailInvestorConferences.com is the first monthly virtual-only investor conference series and was jointly created by BetterInvesting (NAIC), PR Newswire and MUNCmedia, three industry leaders of distribution and technology focused on improving public company transparency towards investors.
"To strong client acclaim, PR Newswire recently added new Buy-side and Sell-side Analyst targeted outreach into its Investor Relations news distribution services," commented John Viglotti, vice president, Investor Relations, PR Newswire. "We are pleased to include this distribution into RetailInvestorConferences.com's program and continue to be extremely committed to the success of the conference series , generating awareness to the events, month after month," said Viglotti. "Regardless of an attendee being an individual or institutional investor, RetailInvestorConferences.com is agnostic – everyone gets the same opportunity to ask questions directly to the CEOs."
