The CEO Connection Mid-Market Convention is the premier annual gathering of mid-market CEOs. The event brings together prominent leaders from diverse industries, along with select government officials, prominent academic figures, subject matter experts and media personalities for a three-day program designed to benefit their companies, the mid-market and the greater society.The world needs pragmatic, achievable solutions that take the long-term view. We need sustainable solutions that can balance the needs of the corporate world, the public today and the society of the future.
The leaders of the mid-market are uniquely qualified to craft these solutions. Collectively they lead organizations that account for over five trillion dollars of the US GDP alone and represent over 40 million employees.
Mid-market CEOs know how to lead complex organizations and creatively use the resources to which they have access. They balance short and long-term needs to make their companies run efficiently. They have the understanding of scale that small businesses lack and are impacted by the conditions on the ground from which the Fortune 500 are often insulated.
This three-day event, held at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, is designed to maximize value for mid-market CEOs. Sessions covering a range of critical mid-market issues and challenges are designed to lead to solutions, both at the company level and the industry level. CEOs in attendance will also have the opportunity to network with peers and play a part in promoting the interests of the mid-market.
This is where the mid-market comes together to create a shared vision to present to the world.
