Bill Ackman, David Einhorn Headline the Eighth Annual Value Investing Congress

In one month, the world's most brilliant investors will converge in New York for the eighth annual Value Investing Congress. Scheduled to take place on October 1 and 2 at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, the Value Investing Congress is a can't-miss event.

Those who sign up by Friday, September 7 can save $1,400 with this special offer from Benzinga. To take advantage of the deal, head over to the Value Investing Congress' website and enter the discount code N12BZ7 before midnight PT on September 7.

Those who have attended previous Value Investing Congress events have been very impressed.

Dan Ferris, author of Extreme Value (a monthly investment research service), was quoted on the VIC website as saying that he loves the event and will "never miss one."

"It is by far the very best investment event in the U.S., maybe in the world," he said. Juliusz Sas, a Managing Director at GSSR Co., concurred with Ferris' assessment. "Every time you do such a good job that I think it cannot be any better, and every time you keep improving it."

"If you get one usable idea it can pay off handsomely and pay for conferences for the next 20 years," added Allen Benello, a Portfolio Manager at White River Partners.

Every year, multiple market-moving calls are made at the Value Investing Congress. In 2007, Greenlight Capital founder David Einhorn warned investors that Lehman Brothers was in trouble. The company crumbled a few months later.

In 2008, Vitaliy Katsenelson, the Chief Investment Officer of Investment Management Associates, recommended Joseph A. Bank (NASDAQ: JOSB), which was trading below $25 at the time. As of this writing, the stock trades above $48.

In 2009, Pershing Square Capital Management founder and CEO Bill Ackman presented his bullish case for Corrections Corp of America (NYSE: CXW), which returned 36 percent in the following years.

This is just a sampling of the success stories reported from the Value Investing Congress. If you want to be part of the ground-breaking, market-moving developments in 2012, sign up now. And don't forget to use the discount code: N12BZ7.
