Student investment conference in Detroit to include live broadcast on CNBC
CNBC's Fast Money Halftime Report, hosted by Scott Wapner, will broadcast live from Detroit's Cobo Center on March 27 during Wayne State University’s ENGAGE International Investment Education Symposium. In addition, the network's senior economics reporter, Steve Liesman, will report live from the event on March 26. The two-day event is being billed as the largest student investment conference in the world with officials predicting an attendance of up to 2,000 students and investment professionals, the latter of which can earn continuing education credits for attending the event. ENGAGE will present the latest trends and best practices from such experts as Dennis P. Lockhart, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. There will also be several panels consisting of CEOs, presidents, CIOs, and economists from prominent firms, including Charles Swab & Co. in Boston and Highland Capital Management in Dallas.
