Hundreds Attend Opening Day of Spring Break for Wall Street

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - February 28, 2008) - The Growth and Value -- Spring Break for Wall Street -- Investor Conference rolled out the red carpet February 27 for approximately 500 accredited investors, financial advisors, stock brokers and interested observers who packed the Westin Fort Lauderdale Hotel on the event's opening day.

Resembling more of a Hollywood gala than a business seminar, the conference offered attendees complimentary food and beverages, raffle giveaways and a rare opportunity to see and learn about some of the finest growth and value companies listed in the public markets. For those who missed the featured companies, presentations will be repeated February 28, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

A complimentary cocktail hour runs from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

"The first day of the event was an eye-opener -- we had real investors asking hard questions," said financial advisor, James 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. We're hoping today's turnout is just as fruitful."

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.

"This is an excellent venue for people to get a first-hand, up-close look at the history, operations, financial state and management of 33 publicly traded companies representing 6 exchanges and 13 sectors, all in a single setting," said DePelisi. "Time efficiency to conduct feasibility studies and streamlined due diligence is what this event is all about. The Growth and Value Conference has it all under one roof. We urge the financial community to take advantage of it."
