If you are a Millionaire Seeker, a great place to meet wealthy men in growing industries is at conferences. The bigger the better; the hotter the industry, the more high-net-worth movers and shakers you can find there. Right now Oracle Open World is going on in San Francisco. We are talking about 45,000 people, almost 90% men! For the price of a ticket $2,595, you could attend all sessions and events.
This may sound like a big investment, but consider it an education session to learn and to meet high level executives. If you want to do it on the cheap, you can simply visit the local social gathering areas around the conference. In this case, the W Hotel and the St. Regis are right across the street. They both have gorgeous bars and meeting areas. Imagine walking into the place and being surrounded by well-heeled business folk who are excited about the latest and greatest in technology. The Marriot Marquis, Hilton San Francisco in Union Square, Palace Hotel, Westin San Francisco on Market Street and the InterContinental (Leaders Circle Headquarters) were listed as the headquarter hotels. This information is all readily available on the conference website.
When you are looking to meet wealthy business leaders, browse for events in your local area and update your profile to mention them. Often, business people will look for some social activities in their area and take advantage of their travel schedule to work in meetings with potential mates. You can also mention your business, hobbies and extra-curricular interests in your profile as something that might encourage someone to meet you with common interests. This type of profile information will help you and your prospective dates find areas of interests on which to meet and will set you apart from the rest of the people who love romantic walks on the beach and snuggling!
“the dust has settled on Infinite Loop, when dusk has ushered in a blog-ish surfeit of Apple commentary, we can finally return to the realm of Big Data–being guzzled by 40,000 or so corporate IT buyers further up the peninsula in San Francisco at Oracle Open World…..We are creating a trove of data that’s expanding and changing so fast that entirely new computing platforms are being developed just to handle it. And that’s where the real money is.” By

Check your local and large city listings for coming conferences. It’s good to know what is hot and what’s not when you are looking to meet people in the know. That’s why I included the image of the Studs from Eddie Borgo Jewelry. The MBA conference is coming up in Chicago which is a high-level conference for the mortgage industry. I’m sure it will prove to have your top level executives there as they strategize the direction of the industry.
Please comment if you can share meaningful experiences you have had meeting high level people at conferences and industry events.
