ASX Investor Relations Hot Topics 2013

22 May, ASX, Sydney
23 May, QV1 Conference Centre, Perth
ASX, in conjunction with the Australasian Investor Relations Association (AIRA), is holding a series of free education forums in 2013 entitled ‘Investor Relations Hot Spots’. The forums are half-day training sessions that address the particular needs of listed companies outside the S&P/ASX 200 that require an understanding of investor relations tools/techniques in the listed environment.
They are run by AIRA and co-hosted and sponsored by ASX throughout Australia. All ASX-listed companies outside the S&P/ASX 200 will have the opportunity to send one representative to one forum free. Numbers will be restricted to 50 per event, on a first-come, first-served basis.
The next series will take place in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth between 17-25th September.

Latin America Down Under was a two-day event held at the Sheraton on the Park, Sydney.
