The Numbers That Matter
SuperReturn stands out in the annual calendar. No other private equity gathering matches it for the breadth and depth of topics discussed or the calibre and seniority of its participants. It’s not an event to miss.

It’s the New York of conferences. It’s the biggest, it’s the best and it’s the one you want to make it at.
It’s always interesting how over the course of the year, people refer to conversations they had or comments they heard while at the SuperReturn. It has become the gathering place for private equity.
Pantheon has been involved with SuperReturn International since it started and our team now builds an entire calendar of events around Berlin in February as we know that is where all our key GPs and clients will be; such is the draw of the conference. I think it is the premier conference on the private equity circuit and one of the most productive and information-efficient weeks of my year.
Pantheon and incoming Chair of the BVCA
SuperReturn is one of the very few must-attend events in Europe. It is an excellent opportunity to meet with leading GPs, LPs and service providers alike, and to get a thorough update on the state of play of the private equity industry. The program is always spot-on and really captures the latest market developments well.
