“We are delighted to be hosting our second virtual event in order to showcase some of the truly unique names in micro-cap” stated Chris Lahiji, President of LD Micro. “There are a great number of people and companies who are unable to attend our live events, due to any number of reasons, so we are happy to offer an additional way for companies to present to investors without taking a lot of time out of their day-to-day operations. While virtual events will never replace the experience of sitting in the same room as other humans, it is a great format for updating the investor community and getting increased exposure.”
The conference will be held via webcast and will feature over 40 companies in the small / micro-cap space.
