Facebook is now being valued at more than $33bn (£21.3bn) as investors try to secure a stake in the social networking site in anticipation of its flotation on the US stock market (Guardian). Put this in contrast with the value of some of the best known tech companies: Apple: $219bn, Microsoft: $208bn, IBM: $157bn, Google: $143bn, Cisco: $120bn, Intel: $102bn, HP: $89bn, eBay: $30bn, Dell: $22bn and Yahoo: $18bn.

Most of us dream of listing our tech companies one day. Some of us have already achieved this dream or in the process of going through such a journey. If listing is an option for your company, you need to start preparing for it now as the time period from decision to IPO could well take 3 years or more.

If you are interested or involved in IPOs, this is the event for you. Our key objective is to stimulate the discussion of listings once again in the north west of England.
