WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Benzinga continues to be an industry leader and their transition from physical to virtual events has been flawless. They have proven once again that quality and content are the measures of a conference.

—Barrington Miller, Director of the Canadian Securities Exchange

We’ve all participated in some clunky virtual events over the past months and this was smooth with strong contacts and “meetings.”

—Michael Mills, CEO of Body and Mind

Benzinga's communication was nothing less than stellar, structure was terrific, accessibility to potential partners was phenomenal and their partnership with Brella was genius. Their pre-event support was very helpful and all of this complimented by a tremendous lineup of speakers, during a very difficult time, is a testament to their team.

—Dr. Michael Silver, CEO of Pinnacle Emporium
