Here is a wrap-up of recent events ASX has held or attended, and coming events for your diary in 2012.
By Sara Lewis, ASX
Small to Mid Caps, Asia
Our Small to Mid Caps conferences continue to go from strength to strength. The second multi-city conference in Hong Kong and Singapore provided an intensive but productive week of meetings and promotional activity for each of the 16 companies participating.
The standout achievement of these conferences is always the number of targeted one-on-one meetings arranged between CEOs of ASX-listed companies and key institutional investors; more than 250 meetings took place over two days, showing the high level of interest from Asian investors in Australian companies.
