The two-day conference, recognized as the premier event for value investors, will be held October 1 and 2, 2012 at the Marriott Marquis in New York's Times Square.

"Our mission for the Value Investing Congress has always been to bring together the top minds in value investing, tuned specifically to the current market climate," said Whitney Tilson, co-founder of the Value Investing Congress. "With uncertainty and volatility persisting, the insights from our excellent lineup of speakers this fall should be invaluable to attendees. It certainly promises to be one of the most timely -- and best -- yet."

Created by disciples of Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett, the Value Investing Congress is the place to network with sophisticated investors, gain clarity on the current investment climate, and come away with actionable investment ideas from the world's leading hedge fund managers.

"We hear again and again from attendees that our format really works, in large part because they have the opportunity to ask questions of every speaker and interact in a lively, collaborative environment," John L. Schwartz, M.D., co-founder of the Congress, said. "We're looking forward to seeing the unique, actionable ideas that come out of this Congress."
