Verbatim testimonials from the 2016 East Coast Summit include:

I just want to commend you all on another fantastic conference! I’m happy to report that I’m back in the office today brimming with tons of ideas, several pages of notes, and a bunch of invaluable new connections that I plan on having ongoing dialogue with. I can’t thank you enough for bringing me into the loop and enabling me to be part of this vibrant community.

Very nice opportunity to interact with peers, and investment “gurus”.

Thank you for inviting me to this event. The presentations and interaction with other plan sponsors and presenters was extremely useful.

Very thoughtfully organized and the sessions were an ideal length to facilitate discussion. IIIDC staff were immensely helpful and very friendly.

The quality of the speakers and app (including polls) was excellent.

Excellent conference. I always get a lot out of the sessions and the networking is invaluable.

The overall content was strong. I didn’t always agree with some of the points of view, but that is the point, to have thought provoking speakers.

About the Summit

The Defined Contribution Summit is the Institute for Defined Contribution’s annual East Coast conference, to be held for the first time at the Taj, Boston, Massachusetts. As our community continues to grow and develop, we are delighted to be moving to a new location for our East Coast conference!

The East Coast Summit offers the unique opportunity for truly open discourse and debate with retirement industry influencers and peers in a private, off the record setting. This last conference of the calendar year is often our most international in scope, attendees and focus. The agenda hones in on the regulatory landscape, providing attendees with critical updates on the legal environment, and aims to equip plan sponsors with tools and tips on how to navigate an increasingly complex space.
