Anthony Scaramucci, founder of $9.6 billion fund of hedge funds SkyBridge Capital, has made the SkyBridge Alternatives Conference in Las Vegas the Super Bowl of hedge fund events since it launched in 2009.

Dubbed "SALT," the May event has lured secretive hedge fund managers Steve Cohen, John Paulson and Paul Singer on stage. Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Nicolas Sarkozy and Tony Blair have spoken. And bands like Maroon 5 and Train have headlined evening entertainment.

But for all of the achievement of the Sin City bash, SALT Las Vegas' little sibling, SALT in Singapore, has lagged—and this year may be its last.
