More than 4,000 individual meetings are scheduled over the two-day event, enabling listed companies to link up with investors from 11 countries including France, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada and Japan. Today the Forum is one of the go-to events for midcaps in Europe, attracting companies with a combined market capitalization of €317 billion.
“We are delighted to renew our long-standing partnership with Oddo & Cie for this year’s Oddo Midcap Forum—and the event is all the more important in that EnterNext, Euronext’s subsidiary for SMEs, will be taking part for the first time,” said Eric Forest, Chairman and CEO of EnterNext.“The Forum raises participating companies’ profiles with investors, a key step in enabling SMEs to raise the capital they need on the market,” he added, noting“One of EnterNext’s aims is to build closer ties to businesses across France, which means we are particularly happy to support an event in Lyon, where we have had an office since last September.”
