Welcome To Future Proof
What is Future Proof?
Future Proof is a groundbreaking new wealth festival set to bring together the world’s most prominent figures and emerging minds to explore the intersection of money, tech, culture, and impact. It’ll be the most meaningful national conference for the financial planning profession, wealth management, and financial services industry.
Future Proof covers the technology (FinTech) and trends set to fundamentally reshape wealth management. The event brings together an entirely new community of financial advisors, institutional investors, asset managers, FinTech startups, financial creators, activists, artists, musicians, and other critical stakeholders around an unprecedented experience and agenda. Future Proof will provide an unmatched opportunity for conversation and collaboration that will serve as a catalyst in developing the future of wealth management and the financial services industry while changing the perception of financial advisor conferences.
The four-day citywide event will be held September 11-14, 2022, in Huntington Beach, California. More than 3,000 attendees, including 1,500+ financial advisors and institutional investors, as well as over 150 sponsor companies, are expected at the inaugural event.
We have reserved four landmark hotels in Huntington Beach to host the event as a citywide experience. The festival will feature a half-mile-long outdoor space with multiple stages, experiential marketing activations, and learning opportunities. Attendees will enjoy an incredible collection of resorts, restaurants, and networking experiences, all contained within a walkable footprint along Southern California’s sunny coast. Future Proof will set a new standard for in person events in the United States and North America that organizers cannot replicate in a virtual format.
What Makes Future Proof Different?
The Future Proof festival will be one of the largest in person events (non-virtual format) for financial advisors in North America. We built a completely new event platform focused on:
Future Proof is a first-of-its-kind immersive citywide experience designed to inspire and push people and companies past their comfort zone. To support financial services firms, advisory firms, and business owners becoming more creative more collaborative. It’s time to take action – to create the future.
Future Proof is a real-life experience in the form of an annual conference—not a virtual event.
Future Proof is the first wealth event that is not “pay-to-play.” All companies must apply to speak. There are no exceptions. Say goodbye to the sales-focused conference agenda that you see at many other wealth management industry conferences.
Diverse perspectives and people matter, so we intentionally invite experts from other industries—like pop culture, music, and art—for inspiration. This event will be much larger than your typical investment management or asset management industry.
The annual conference agenda will not be something you’ve seen at other industry conferences. The program will explore new asset classes and financial technology (FinTech), while bringing together industry heavyweights, financial institutions, and your fellow advisors and advisory businesses for this new look community event.
You cannot expand your perspective and think differently if you are not exposed to a broad perspective.
Breakthrough requires a commitment to new frontiers and questioning rational thought.
Future Proof’s audience is the most engaged multi-generational investor audience in the market. It is purposely not limited to traditional finance.
Let’s make headlines together! With more than 3,000 attendees, 1,500 financial advisors and institutional investors, 150 sponsor companies, 100 media & press representatives (including CNBC and the Wall Street Journal), hundreds of financial planning CEOs, and membership association participants, Future Proof is the leading event platform for the wealth management and financial services ecosystem to share important investment news and insights.
We invite you to join us at Future Proof, the world’s largest wealth festival.
