Attendee Rules of Engagement

We hope you share our excitement for the upcoming 2019 Annual Convention in New York City. From the launch of our new Secured Finance Network brand to a packed agenda and soon-to-be announced high-profile speakers and event venues, we have a lot in store for attendees. To make sure that everyone gets the most value out of their registration and/or sponsorship, we’ve set aside specific blocks of time for our members to host outside events (i.e., cocktail receptions, dinners, etc.).

The following Open Times will not conflict with the CFA/SFNet Annual Convention program:

  • Wednesday, November 13:
    • 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. EST
    • 9:00 p.m. – Midnight EST (post-Opening Reception)
  • Thursday, November 14:
    • 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. EST
  • Friday, November 15:
    • From 2:30 p.m. EST on

There are several rooms at the Marriott Marquis Times Square that can be reserved for meeting during these Open Times. Please contact James Kravitz for more information and to reserve space.

Member and non-member companies invest time, resources, and money to attend the CFA/SFNet Annual Convention. Likewise, our committee volunteers have selflessly given their time and energy to deliver a top-notch program that is both relevant and engaging. For this reason, we are giving everyone ample advance notice to schedule outside events at times and dates that do not conflict with the Convention program.

Additionally, to respect the value of our sponsor’s investments and our attendee’s registrations, we ask that if you must meet with individuals who are not registered for the Convention (such as those who invariably gather in the hotel bar), please do so either the day before the program commences or after it concludes. If you notice this type of activity, please bring it to the attention of one of our staff members.

Thank you.
