Conference du Jour: Constructing Short-Selling List from Sponsors

One of the joys of being in San Diego is a steady stream of major local conferences, some of which look like just too much fun to miss. Today’s pick, this one:

2007 Home Equity Lending Conference
September 23 – 25, 2007
Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego
San Diego, California


Home equity loans comprise one of the core consumer loan products for most financial institutions, but competition is continually changing the landscape and profit outlook. Our conference provides home equity professionals with both strategic insight and practical solutions to such pressing issues as the integration of market segments, partnerships and alliances, value-added uses of technology, and creating customer value.

Lots more good stuff in the Agenda, here.

Out of curiosity, it would be fun to track a portfolio of the conference’s main sponsors. I’m guessing it’s a good list of shorts.
