Ira Sohn Conference 2016: The Full Schedule

A notable investment conference is taking place in New York City this week: the Ira Sohn Conference. The event kicks off at noon on Wednesday.

As the website describes, Ira Sohn has been going on since 1995 and "has been the premier investment event, bringing the world's savviest investors together to share fresh insights and money-making ideas."

Market-moving headlines have been known to come out of the conference. Last year, Bill Ackman's discussion on Jarden Corp (NYSE: JAH) sent the stock rallying after hours. Keith Meister outlined why Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM) was "well-managed" and had great opportunities moving forward.
