The Event Has Been Postponed due to COVID-19

The M&A Advisor has postponed the 2020 Distressed Investing Summit featuring the 14th Annual Turnaround Awards Gala.

We are committed to the health & safety of our attendees and employees and in everyone’s best interests we decided to postpone the 2020 Distressed Investing Summit & 14th Annual Turnaround Awards until a new autumn 2020 date (to be announced soon), in New York.

We regret the need to delay but look forward to hosting a great event later. We will be providing more information in the days ahead.

Our event team is at your disposal for questions at lpisareva@maadvisor.com.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you in New York this fall. Stay tuned!
