Atlantic City: Boardwalk Bound

Many readers have asked why we offer The Money Show Digest for free. There are three main reasons. First, this Digest lets us provide our readers with the very best in investment education--the primary goal of InterShow. Second, it allows us to showcase the leading financial advisors and share some of their latest advice. And third, it allows us--on occasion--to let you know about upcoming Money Shows. Here, then, is a "shameless plug" for next week's Atlantic City Money Show .
I am really excited about next week's Money Show, which will be held in Atlantic City, from Thursday, August 6 through Saturday, August 9. This is InterShow's 25th year producing these shows, and I've been lucky enough to be attending The Money Shows for 20 years. This is sure to be a phenomenal show. In our premier event, Louis Rukeyser will delight you with his own uniquely wise and witty opening remarks, as well as host a very special all-star lunch panel.
Some of the other highlights of the upcoming Atlantic City Money Show will include Lawrence Kudlow, Mary Farrell, Bernie Schaeffer, and Forbes' James Michaels, among many other industry leaders. Those of you who are familiar with these conferences know how informative, fun, and potentially profitable these Money Shows can be.The Atlantic City Money Show will feature over 150 free workshops over a three-day period. (There are also some exceptional panels, that while not free, are well worth the modest cost.) Over the three days of the show, you'll be able to meet and listen to some of the leading advisors, many of whom you have followed in previous issues of the Digest . Don't miss Fidelity's Bruce Johnstone, Nancy Zambell, who will offer a unique seminar on Women and Investing, or the legendary Paul Kangas.
For those investors who are attending a Money Show for the first time, I can assure you that you are in for a real treat. Some events that you don't want to miss are Ken Fisher, who always offers brilliant insights into the psychology of investing, as well as industry leading analysts Joe Battipaglia and Maria Fiorini Ramirez.
In fact, there are a number of free panels, that in my opinion, are must-see events such as the Forbes Roundtable featuring Matt Schifrin along with John Buckingham, Josh Wolfe, Jim Collins, and James Oberweis, among others. This panel offers some of the most sought-after advice available anywhere.
I'm also personally looking forward to the KCI Communications Panel which will feature Neil George, who recently became the editor of Personal Finance. He will be appearing along with Elliott Gue and Roger Conrad . From small to large cap, domestic to global investing, and trading and investing, this panel will cover it all.
Another top event that always leads to great investment advice is the Standard & Poor's Investment Panel, featuring their market outlook and their top fund and stock picks. Other great events presented at the Money Show include Frank Cappiello and John Murphy, The list goes on and on. Panel topics include gold, technology, real estate, options, technical trading, growth investing, and income investing. Indeed, the entire gamut of investment opportunities is covered.
Finally, no Money Show event would be complete without some of our long-standing favorites such as fund expert, Janet Brown, technology guru Michael Murphy, Louis Navellier, a leader in momentum investing and modern portfolio theory, economist Mark Skousen, Barron's Online editor Howard Gold, and "ChangeWave" expert, Tobin Smith.
It's not too late to make plans to attend. Tickets to the Money Show are FREE to all readers of the Digest . And for those who will not be able to attend, the following week's Money Show Digest will feature some of the highlights from the show. I look forward to meeting as many Money Show Digest readers as possible during the conference. See you in Atlantic City!
