February 26 — mark your calendar — will be the 2009 edition of the ASX Conference in New York City. The Australian Securities Exchange has scheduled 13 companies as of today, largely, as one might expect, in the area of natural resources.
The conference will be held at the centrally located Grand Hyatt adjacent to Grand Central Terminal. There will be an evening reception on the 25th, and the conference itself will kick off with an address by the Consul General of Australia at 9:30AM, followed by company presentations at approximately half-hour intervals, with one-on-one meetings throughout the day.
