I strongly suggest anyone reading this to pick up a ticket. I've been to both events and they were not only each individually great, but they seem to be getting exponentially better. 100% worth every penny you pay and more.

@TNA : Seconded. Great summer weekend all around, both times.

Quick question, are the tickets transferable? I want to get two tickets but I am not sure if the person I want to take will be able to make it.

Mar 21, 2014

yes, we can transfer if needed.

There is a 100% refund until June 1 and the 75% for a few weeks after that, so hopefully you'd know by June 1...

Any word on the speakers / topics? I may actually be able to make it again this year depending on where in the world i'm working.

This conference is a bargain compared to everything else out there in NYC

AND

It's geared toward a young professional audience. The firms that the speakers represent are hands down the most valuable opportunity you will have to get a lead to get that elusive informational interview or referral. If you are at a non-target and without access to OCR this conference will really give you a solid shot because of the individuals that speak and attend for their own development.

Bottom line is, if you are looking to break in the - this conference truly gives you a ton of leads to work from. Not to mention, it's a lot of fun and you can begin building your peer network.

It would be the best investment to make

Thanks for doing this Pat

This event is how I gauge my year now... Can't believe I missed the EarlyMonkeyBird tickets! Time is flying.

Patrick, I think I'd like to be involved this year if possible- any way I can help?

Having flown in from the West Coast to attend last year's conference, I highly recommend the event to all junior professionals. The diversity of the attendees really enhanced my knowledge of current trends and issues in our industry. The speakers were also fantastic, as they gave real advice and insights on finding the right opportunities in finance. Really hope my schedule works out so I can attend again this year. I'm sure it will be another success.

Definitely considering attending, although my career isn't really looking like it's moving towards IB, the opportunity to meet some monkeys and learn a few things seems cool. Maybe this year..

In a similar boat - not aiming for the "popular" career paths (IB/PE/S&T/HF), so I'm not sure how much the speakers and panels will help. However, I will attest that the connections you make at the conference will stay with you a long time. I'm still in touch with many of people I met there during the inaugural year (2012). It's also great to finally put faces to the names of the active users here ;)

hope you can make it. As I hope you know, all Certified Users get a free ticket - just e-mail [email protected] and she'll get one issued :-)

Apr 30, 2014

Will be arriving for FT training just in time for this. Any other incoming 1st year analysts plan on attending??

Apr 30, 2014

Is the schedule for the conference mostly geared towards prospective monkeys? If so I'll probably just hit up the after party.

May 1, 2014

I'd say it's a mix. We do have a speaker talking about how to prepare yourself for MBA applications and a panel called: "Transition to the Buyside (PE&HFs) - How Deal with Recruiters and Break In" ...so it's still relevant to young professionals and there will be a lot of Certified Users there and time to network. Hope you can make it!

JYFresh saying he flew in from the West Coast is now making me think I am going to do the same thing.

For someone that is coming from out of state but looking to relocate to the New York area would the networking opportunities still be worthwhile? I want to transition out of Corporate Banking to Investment Management.

May 8, 2014

Hey JT - I think it really depends on you. If you're looking to relocate, I think it would be a great way to meet some people in the area and start building relationships. Will there be a ton of IM professionals there - probably not, but there will be a lot of IB, PE, traders and HF professionals, many of who have friends in IM, and definitely a few IM people as well...but the real question is will you build any real connections when you are there. That depends more on you and your willingness to meet people.

I always say that it just takes 1 person to make a difference. You don't have to make the trip to NYC, you don't have to do anything. But will coming to NYC and meeting a bunch of fun / nice people help your chances of transitioning to NYC? hell yes. As long as you are friendly and don't sit in a corner :-)

We actually had a very big group from out of state and even out of country attend the last 2 years, so you wouldn't be the only one. Either way, good luck in your journey.

Thanks Patrick, I appreciate the response. I am planning on coming and I want to register for one of the Mentor sessions too! Trying to put a good deal of effort into making it work like you said.

May 14, 2014

Do we get a deal or discount at the roosevelt?

May 15, 2014

Assume you mean Hotel Penn?

Call Hotel Pennsylvania (location of the conference) at 800-223-8585 and mention the group "Wall Street Oasis Conference" and you should get the following rates for Friday & Saturday (if not, let me know):

* $149/night for a king bed ($348.94 total w/ taxes) and
* $169 ($394.96 total w/ taxes) for 2 double beds.

This should be interesting. I wonder what chicandtoughness's inbox looked like when she woke up the morning after her post.

Looking for a roommate as well. Anyone?

Jun 6, 2014

Is there a thread yet for people looking for places to stay? I'm coming in from out-of-state again and will likely show up a few days early for some appointments. I'm also willing so switch places and split a room at the Penn.

Jun 6, 2014

I just booked it for a week. 166/night

Jun 11, 2014

Just bought my ticket, looking forward to meeting everyone! Will likely get there morning of, thanks for setting this up WSO crew

Jun 11, 2014

Do you get the discounted price if you only book one night? Heavily considering attending if this fits into my schedule, it sounds like a good time.

Jun 11, 2014

I don't think the discounted price matters whether you attend the happy hour or not. The actual event is only one day (June 28). However, the discount will end in about 2 hours so I would move quickly!

Jun 11, 2014

@Hugh Myron - Just realized you were talking about the hotel room. I think it mentions that the discount rate applies to 1 or 2 nights.

Jun 19, 2014

can't wait

Jun 19, 2014

Bummed I can't fork over $700-800 just for travel/hotel expense. Maybe next year...
