In 1981 Kim and Charles Githler began their tradition of empowering the individual investor via face-to-face education with a pioneering series of Investment Seminars. These gatherings for people with a passion for investing immediately attracted a following of like-minded independent thinkers and choice-makers. Over time the Githlers evolved these seminars into The MoneyShow which spearheaded the field of investment tradeshows with its unique concept: inviting highly qualified investors, expert speakers, select exhibitors, and top financial media partners to gather in a live forum where their interaction creates a dynamic marketplace. At every MoneyShow, powerful educational programming is matched by displays of quality products and services, relationships are formed, and products are actually bought and sold either on the spot or in the future.
Exhibitors have learned the benefits of the extraordinary MoneyShow opportunity. Meeting face-to-face with their affluent, investment-savvy target market and networking with peers in the financial services arena, as well as with some of the largest media companies in the world, has proven itself over and over again to be good business. The innovative niche marketing and business model developed for The MoneyShow has been integral to its resounding success, both nationally and globally, as well as highly adaptable to the entire roster of MoneyShow productions that address the needs of various industry segments.
Today, with special focuses for each venue such as Green Investing and All-About-Gold, the pioneer of investment trade shows boasts more than 150 workshops and panel presentations, 75 financial and economic experts, and 100 financial services companies, attracting more than 20,000 highly qualified investors annually who are drawn to its inimitable experience. The MoneyShow is the largest, the best, and remains #1 in the nation.
