CHICAGO, Aug. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Three Part Advisors, LLC today announced details for the firm's Midwest IDEAS Investor Conference to be held on August 27, 2013, at The University of Chicago Gleacher Center, Chicago, Illinois. The mission of the IDEAS Investor Conferences is to provide independent venues for quality public companies to present their investment merits to an influential audience of investment professionals and analysts from across the country. Unlike traditional bank-sponsored events, IDEAS Investor Conferences are sponsored directly by, and for the benefit of, the members of the regional investment communities.

IDEAS Investor Conferences, which are held in Boston, Chicago and Dallas/Fort Worth, are produced by the capital markets and investor relations consulting firm, Three Part Advisors, LLC, and sponsored by regional investment communities. The conference format provides each participating company multiple opportunities to meet with key professional investors and explain investment merits to attendees, both in a traditional group presentation, and in private meetings. Each presenting company will also have the opportunity to webcast its group presentation.

"First and foremost, the structure of our conferences is designed to generate good IDEAS that over time can outperform the market. Because our conferences are independent venues, and not influenced by investment banking or trading commissions, we have greater freedom to invite quality companies that might otherwise fly under the radar screen of similar bank-sponsored venues," said David M. Mossberg, Founder of Three Part Advisors. "We also enjoy the support of the regional investment community and seek their input to determine the list of presenting companies. As a result of this structure, our conferences have established a successful track record of generating good IDEAS."
