Complimentary Food & Beverages to Be Served at Spring Break for Wall Street on February 27th and 28th

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - February 25, 2008) - There won't be Frankie Avalon or Annette Funicello singing, "Where the Boys Are," but hundreds of investors are sure to find "Where the Special Companies of Wall Street Are" this week. That's because 34 of the most premiere publicly-traded companies will be featured February 27th and 28th at the 2008 Growth and Value - Spring Break for Wall Street - Investor Conference at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Hotel.

The conference will kick off festivities with complimentary food and drinks. Giveaways at the event include a 3-day, 2-night trip for two to Las Vegas (Monte Carlo hotel) and a 46" HD TV.

"There has never been an investor conference of this magnitude in South Florida before, there is none right now that I know of, and there may never, ever be another event like this in the future," said investment advisor Jim DePelisi, who is sponsoring the event.

People who are serious about researching the stock market will find their time well spent in attending this event, said DePelisi, adding that accredited investors, financial advisors, fund managers and stock brokers will have a rare opportunity to see and learn about some of the finest potential growth and value companies listed in the public markets today.

"This will be an excellent venue for people to get a firsthand, up close look at the history, operations, financial state and management of 34 publicly-traded companies representing 6 exchanges and 13 sectors, all in a single setting. Time efficiency to conduct feasibility studies and streamlined due diligence is what this event is all about. The Growth and Value Conference will have it. All under one roof. We urge the financial community to take advantage of it," said DePelisi.

At each session, attendees will hear informative presentations from each company's Chief Executive Officer and senior executive management, followed by question and answer sessions. Further, one-on-one opportunities are available with the CEOs and executives.

Among those presenting are RPM International Inc. (NYSE: RPM), a holding company that owns subsidiaries in specialty coatings and sealants serving both industrial and consumer markets. Headquartered in Medina, OH, RPM announced in January record sales and net income for its Fiscal 2008 second quarter.
