New Conferences: Connecting Companies and Investors Globally
In the new age of technology, we have the capability to bring together a massive amount of companies and investors. This year, we held three large-scale, multi-day events: the 6ix Virtual Spring Conference, hosted in March 2022; Africa Accelerating in October 2022; and 6ix MIX, hosted in December 2022. The events were free for all investors – and they always will be.
The 6ix Virtual Spring Conference was a virtual conference where investors could watch corporate presentations, book one-on-one meetings with the CEOs of public companies and experience the full power of the 6ix Investment Discovery Platform. We featured 41 companies and five keynote speakers during this free four-day event.
The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business’s Africa Accelerating 2022 was a three-day conference that brought high-level leaders together at venues in Canada and on the African continent and was broadcasted live to thousands of delegates on 6ix.com and in-person attendees.
The 6ix MIX Conference spanned over two weeks, from December 5th–16th and had 96 companies pitch their company to our investor community in six minutes. The last day of the event featured nine keynote speakers, including Peter Schiff, Rick Rule and 6ix’s very own Daniel Barankin.
New Organizations: Sharing Our Community’s Expertise
This year, 6ix became a platinum sponsor of The Canadian Investor Relations Institute (CIRI) because we are dedicated to supporting the advancement of the stature and credibility of the investor relations profession and its members’ expertise. Most recently, 6ix supported CIRI’s research on Investor Presentation Best Practices, which was featured in the IR directions publication.
6ix also supports the Canada-Africa Chamber of Business (the Chamber) by hosting Africa Accelerating each year on our platform. The Chamber accelerates trade, business and investment between Canada and Africa through world-class networking and information-sharing opportunities.
