Stocktoberfest East!

Yes, you heard right — the best financial conference of the year is dropping another set of roots in New York!

Most people in our world know about Stocktoberfest, StockTwits’ iconic event held annually in Coronado, California. It’s a uniquely fantastic few days- with the best people in the best venue, bringing together the perfect cross section of investors, traders, entrepreneurs, financial media, and VCs for cross-pollination and learning in paradise. I wrote about why it’s so great and important here.

The most common request we get around the event is to create something similar in NYC for those who can’t make it to California in October.

So we’re doing just that for 2017. Stocktoberfest East will be held on March 29th and 30th and will feature something new — the inaugural presentation of the StockTwits Cashtag Awards where we recognize (in typical StockTwits’ irreverent fashion) the good, the bad, and the ugly of markets from the past year.

Today we have sent out requests for nominations for the awards, and we know our insightful, hilarious and prescient community will come back with some great ones.

We’ll see you in March.
