The Global Crowdfunding Convention (GCC), an annual event where people gather to network and learn about #crowdfunding, today announced that its fifth annual event will be held October 15-17, 2016 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
For two days, the GCC will host crowdfunding experts along with focus on teaching attendees how to raise money in equity-, rewards-/donation-based crowdfunding, and discuss more details about the new regulation crowdfunding rules of the Jobs Act.
Ruth E. Hedges, executive producer of GCC, stated:
“It is estimated that crowdfunding will add at least $65 billion into the global economy in 2016, and with its current growth rate, at least $3.2 trillion by 2020. As the first and longest running crowdfunding convention in the world, we have had a very big impact on the growth of this booming industry, and by joining forces with The LaunchPad Agency, we are now set to provide an even better experience for attendees wanting to learn from and network with top crowdfunding industry professionals!”
“We have been a big part of the crowdfunding ecosystem for many years and are very happy to be partnered with Ruth and now owners of the Global Crowdfunding Convention. Together, and through this amazing event, we will be taking big steps towards helping shape the future of this quickly growing industry.”
