Arlan Hamilton and Alex Banayan to Keynote 2018 PACT Capital Conference

The event is back this year with a whole new format and location for its 25th anniversary.

The PACT Capital Conference is back again this September, but the signature event will look and feel very different this year for its 25th anniversary. For one, instead of spreading the conference out over two days, organizers have condensed the activities into just one (September 26 from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.).
