The Deal Economy 2013:
The Deal Economy 2013 is the definitive M&A forecasting event, gathering an invitation-only audience of senior corporate development executives, private equity and hedge fund investors, investment bankers, lawyers and advisors to listen and discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the people and organizations who make up the deal economy in 2013.  The proceedings will be also be webcast, live over The Deal Pipeline service, which is available to over 30,000 paid users, from the NYSE on November 28 and November 29.  In addition, several companies are being honored for their recognition as "Most Admired Corporate Dealmakers", including this year's winners: Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT), Amazon.com, Berkshire Hathaway, E.I. du Pont de Nemours, IBM Corporation, Kinder Morgan, The Coca Cola Company (NYSE: KO), United Technologies Corporation and Verizon Communications.
 
Entitled "Beyond the Election", The Deal's annual outlook conference will focus on a key question: In the next phase of the U.S. Recovery, can gridlock finally give way to a new era of progress where dealmakers can re-engage with a renewed sense of confidence and conviction?  How will the new political and economic realities in the U.S. and the shifting pressure points elsewhere shape business, finance and dealmaking in the year to come?  Times have rarely been more uncertain and events have rarely been so fluid. That makes this year's debate all the more critical.  Over both days of the conference, The Deal Economy will include perspective from leading dealmakers, including Greg Rayburn of Hostess Brands, Steve and Jean Case of The Case Foundation, Ken Mehlman of KKR, Barbara Novick of BlackRock,  Paul Parker of Barclays, Steven Rattner of Willett Advisors, Hilton Romanski of Cisco Systems, Chancellor Leo Strine, Jr., Raymond Svider of BC Partners and James Woolery of JP Morgan.
