Executives from 27 local high tech hope to return from the AeA Financial Conference in San Diego, California next month with higher stock prices. In its 32nd year, the AeA Classic Financial Conference allows investors a unique forum where they can talk with company executives about their business plans and emerging technologies one-on-one. The event will take place November 3-6 this year.

"The AeA Classic is the only forum of its kind that provides intimate interaction between high-tech company executives and analysts in an impartial environment," said Anne Doherty Johnson, AeA New England region executive director.

"The AeA Classic not only offers the forum to deliver this message, but also provides a valuable opportunity to answer the specific questions that are important to investors today."

"The AeA Classic has become an annual tradition in Avid's investor relations calendar," said David Krall, President and CEO, Avid Technology, Inc., Tewksbury, MA. "Over the past few years, we have established important relationships with potential investors during the conference, and I personally look forward to the frank, and in-depth discussions that take place there. The presentation format is ideally suited for intimate, one-on-one discussions with analysts and investors."
