VENICE - The European Securitization Forum's packed agenda for its third annual conference held here last week got high marks. Several attendees noted that the conference continues to grow and has become one of the more important European industry events.
However, the hard-to-get-to venue got mixed reviews from participants. Although the Lido location offered attendees the beauty of Venice, ariving from the airport took an hour and 15 minutes. For people who were looking to just pop in and out of the event, this presented some difficulty. A few industry players were also complaining about the all-industry dinner held at the end of the conference.
