Perez, author of The Speed Traders, An Insider's Look at the New High- Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World (http://www.thespeedtraders.com), will participate on the discussion 'Is "Silicon Valley" Unique and Can it be Reproduced in Eurasia?', with Yury Frantsuzov, Strategic Business Development Manager with Intel, Peter Loukianoff , Managing Partner with Almaz Capital Partners, and Dr. Jan Dauman, Director and Senior Partner, Russia with CET (Central Europe Trust). The aim of this convention - "meeting of minds" is to bring together leading names in private equity from across the largest and the most interesting continents on the planet and discuss the issues and opportunities in the private equity industry, acquire new business contacts in a relaxed and comfortable environment. Three out of four BRIC countries (Russia, India and China) are located here, plus a score of other extremely interesting emerging markets and "old economies". The potential for growth in the private equity on this continent is immense. Some discussion groups "skewed" towards Russia and the CIS private equity industry. Nevertheless, Russia is the country that lies both in Europe and Asia and a huge market in itself. We strongly believe that the most interesting opportunities lie on the borderlines of interests, discussions and in the forging of personal relationships. 2nd Private Equity Convention Russia (CIS) & Eurasia will be held at the stunning Sofitel London St James, located in the former home of Cox's and King's bank in the very heart of London, England. This sympathetically renovated building is English heritage grade II listed and now houses one of London's most unique five-star hotels - combining traditional British design with a contemporary style that is unmistakably French. Sofitel London St James has one of the finest addresses in London, right on the corner of Pall Mall and Waterloo Place.

The hotel is also less than a five minute stroll from Trafalgar Square, city centre theatres and the fabulous shopping on Regent, Piccadilly, Oxford and Bond streets.
