IPMI's 3rd Annual New York Platinum Dinner

The IPMI 3rd Annual Dinner was a great success despite its unforeseen hiccups. After guest speaker Lou Dobbs unexpectedly bowed out a mere days before the event , IPMI was delighted that Emmy Award winning journalist John Stossel graciously stepped in to give our more than 230 attendees an "libertarian" observation on finance and government regulations. Thoughtful, sometimes provocative and often humorous Mr. Stossel accompanied his talk with a slideshow presentation.

Held at the elegant and historic New York Palace Hotel, attendees enjoyed a cocktail reception before the three course dinner and keynote address.

Since seating is limited, mark your calendars now for the 4th Annual Platinum dinner at the New York Palace Hotel September 15, 2016.
