Our first conference in May – the first one ever dedicated entirely to short selling – was a home run, and the next one promises to be even better, with 20 of the world’s smartest short sellers pitching their most profitable, actionable ideas and answering questions afterwards. The best speakers are returning, including Sahm Adrangi, Gabriel Grego, who exposed the fraud at Folli Follie (the stock was halted two weeks later), Chris Brown (Energous, down 44%), and Victoria Hart (jeweler Pandora, down 43%). In addition, there will be a dozen new speakers: view the list, which we are adding to every week.

It will be in the same venue, the NY Athletic Club, with a similar format, but slightly longer 20-minute speaking slots to allow for questions after each presentation.

I urge you to register now so you can lock in our lowest pricing. The at-the-door price is $3,995, but our current Super Early Bird price, which expires at midnight (EDT), is only $1,995. Even better, here’s a special offer for my newsletter subscribers: you can save an additional $400 (that’s 20% off!) by using discount code VW10 when you register.

Lastly, you don’t have to be in NYC to attend the conference, as we will be livestreaming it to a global audience.

The price jumps to $2,495 after midnight, so please register now. There’s no downside, as it’s fully refundable until a month in advance, and is transferable thereafter.
