About the Conference

From IMPACT to INNOVATION

The 2021 TMA Distressed Investing Conference was made possible, in part, by the generous support of our sponsors and a grant from the TMA Cornerstone Council, which was established to support education and research within our industry. TMA DIC is the leading event for networking and dealmaking in the turnaround, restructuring, and distressed investing world. 

That's a Wrap!

Thank you to the nearly 550 of you who participated in the 2021 TMA Distressed Investing Conference. Without you, and the support of our generous sponsors, this powerful and innovative conference would not have been possible. A special thank you to the 2021 TMA Distressed Investing Conference Committee for dedicating your time and energy, and for your commitment to TMA during what will be remembered as one of TMA’s most memorable and defining moments.
