On Tuesday night around 2, 000 hedge fund supervisors, DC insiders, Wall Street bankers, reporters, protection professionals, and can.i.am will descend on the Bellagio Hotel in vegas for an annual four day conference regarding the minds.
Business Insider may also be into the scrum within the activity stay.
It's similar to this — SALT Las Vegas, a yearly summit managed by investment firm SkyBridge Capital, could be the biggest hedge fund summit of the season, therefore the whole Street would be often here, or paying attention for nuggets of development that come after that.
The schedule includes off and on the record speaks with everybody from previous Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and previous Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, to Sir Richard Branson, who's keeping a talk about medication legalization. Michael J Fox is going to be here, so will hedge fund managers like Kyle Bass, Jim Chanos and Leon Cooperman. James Carville and Karl Rove will share the stage for a panel regarding 2016 Presidential election.
That's simply a piece of this conference activity.
There's some behind-the-scenes drama underlying the complete event also. CNBC as soon as had exclusive rights to place SALT on air, but considering that the community broke with SkyBridge CEO Anthony Scaramucci final summer time, Bloomberg and Fox Business system tend to be covering it in 2010. CNBC would be no place. Insiders expect another two communities to actually turn it up in CNBC's absence.
So anyhow — imaginable this really is a pretty colorful event.
