It's that time of the year again - securitization professionals from around the world are taking a two-week excursion to the desert to attend the back-to-back ABS conferences, IMN/Fabozzi's ABS West 2002 and SRI's Asset Securitization Symposium. This year's conferences, however, are perhaps the industry's most highly anticipated ABS gatherings since the inception of the market, as structured finance professionals forewent the fall conferences due to those events' proximity to Sept. 11.

Attendance at both Arizona shindigs, therefore, is expected to be record-breaking: This week's IMN/Fabozzi conference, for instance, boasts a whopping 2,100 people registered and more than 130 sponsors/exhibitors.
