NobleCon is all about generating investment ideas. So it’s all about the companies.

Selection of the presenting company roster is no small undertaking.

NobleCon is all about emerging growth companies. So we start with the best resource available, Channelchek.com. Channelchek offers investors access to institutional-quality research, advanced market data, company comparison tools, balanced news, webcasts, podcasts and meet-the-management roadshows. All focused, exclusively, on emerging growth companies (more than 6,000, with market capitalization of $10million - $1billion). Using Channelchek as the starting point, our selection committee gets to work. Made up of Noble Capital Markets’ analysts, investment bankers, senior executives and, in the case of life sciences, Noble’s Scientific Advisory Board, the committee evaluates requests-to-present based upon sector relevance, market position, changes in management, intellectual property, liquidity / exit strategies, potential catalytic events and other aspects of fundamental analysis. The goal is simple. Put the best possible selection of companies on the stage in front of an audience who’s got an appetite for small / micro-cap investing. It’s what NobleCon is all about.

2020 Confirmed Lineup

Selected Past Speakers

Not too big. In no way small.

Noble Capital Markets’ sixteenth annual emerging growth investor conference.
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Hollywood Florida. February 16-18, 2020.




We’re more about limitation than expansion. 125 public companies is not a small number. Any more, however, will start limiting investors’ direct-access to the executive teams over the two-day agenda. We run four presentation tracks, no more. Any more and we would lose the camaraderie and intimacy we’ve strived to create over the last fifteen years. Don’t get us wrong. We think big in terms of the presenting company selection process, the experience-value of our networking events and the precision of the scheduling of 1500 meetings. Another expansion we’re excited about is broadening access to investors worldwide by hosting the conference site on Channelchek.com. Investors and the general public gain full access at no cost to the site devoted to increasing awareness for emerging growth companies. That’s pretty much the purpose of NobleCon. And while we’re still on the subject of big, for NC2020 we’re beaming all company presentations on 8’X12’ screens utilizing the newest technology - UHD laser projection. NobleCon16. Not too big, not too small. Just right.

BACK TO THE ROCK. NobleCon16

Big, bold & beautiful. A new direction for Hard Rock. And for NobleCon.

Be among the first to experience the new flagship Hard Rock. The $1.5 billion triple-its-size expansion will be ready and open this winter. The host hotel of Super Bowl LIV (and, by-the-way, the game is played at Hard Rock Stadium). The NFL 100th anniversary party. And NobleCon16. Spanning 200-plus acres, the new luxury Hard Rock Hollywood will offer 1267 rooms including 638 in the first-of-its-kind Guitar Tower reaching 450 feet into the sky; 36 restaurants, bars and lounges; 6,500-seat all-new Hard Rock Live world-class entertainment venue, 42,000 square foot Oasis Spa; 200,000 square feet of gaming, and; multiple resort pools covering close to 20 acres (one of which is the size of three football fields). And where is this new icon of the South Florida skyline? Less than 15 minutes from Fort Lauderdale / Hollywood International Airport. Uber: about 10 bucks. Take a visual tour of the new Hard Rock.


It’s big but you won’t have a problem finding us

Noble Capital Markets - a full-service SEC / FINRA licensed broker-dealer that has supported emerging growth companies since 1984 – established NobleCon in 2005. Hard Rock hosted the first NobleCon; six through nine as well. We simply outgrew the original Hard Rock. Now with the quadrupling of available space, we’re taking over 40,000 square feet of the new-construction, state-of-the-art conference facility. Their 2020 vision, once again, aligns perfectly with ours. This is the place to work hard and play hard. NobleCon16. The ultimate adventure in capitalism.

NobleCon16: what’s in it for me?

As an investor - institutional, family office, RIA, independent broker or self-directed - this is the idea place. Meet the men and women representing the best of American ingenuity; those who will shape our future in technology, manufacturing, science and medicine. Game-changers at the early stages of the game. Sit-in on c-suite presentations or, if you’re really serious, we’ll arrange face-to-face meetings. A personal and professional environment with a buttoned-down business day that gets a little more fun when the sun goes down and the networking begins. It’s all at NobleCon16 at Hard Rock. This winter in South Florida. Not a bad place to be.


Panel presentations; differing viewpoints on debatable topics.

Among the best-attended agenda items at NobleCon

Selecting speakers is the most critical aspect of a successful panel presentation; key opinion leaders who can offer a wide range of perspectives on a given topic. We’re doing that now. We don’t follow a cookie-cutter approach with scripted questions and prepared answers. Although panelists will know the general outline, our experienced moderators are skilled at bringing out all sides of the debate. The outcome, well, you’ll have to be in attendance to find out as it is often unpredictable and a little controversial. Expect topics that are just that; cannabis, biotechnology, foreign trade and the impact on emerging growth companies, blockchain, precious metal exploration, technology… we’ll be posting panels and players leading up to NobleCon16. Refer to the Agenda for times and locations.




Inflammasome Inhibitors: The Next Generation of Innovative Immunotherapy Agents
Watch the panel webcast

Recent breakthroughs in regulating inflammasomes will be discussed by experts on the leading edge of new discovery and therapies. Inflammatory disorders, including Alzheimer's, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, chronic kidney disease, lupus, diabetes, and cancer, affect 5-7% of Western populations. The companies represented on this panel could potentially translate current research into future treatments.


Creating Shareholder Value in the Mining Sector: What is the Recipe?
Watch the panel webcast

Differentiation between mining companies and understanding what efforts have paid off better than others is a big part of understanding shareholder value. There will be a look at the Fraser ranking of mining jurisdictions and recent movement of companies within the rankings and where they operate. Discussions will also center on who is moving up, moving down, and thoughts from the panel regarding the survey and the jurisdictions where they operate. The panelists will answer the questions: Should investors focus more on financial returns or production growth?


IMO2020: Major Shift in Fuel Regulations
Watch the panel webcast

At the beginning of 2019, IMO2020 required shipping companies to comply with new regulations designed to improve air emissions by lowering the sulfur emitted in flue gases. Panelists will detail their views on the low sulfur requirement and its impact on shipping. Some companies have shifted to compliant low sulfur fuel while others are investing in equipment to remove sulfur. Attendees will come to understand how decisions are made, how what is best for one company may not suit another, and what is coming down the road.


Cannabis Stocks: Back down to reality? What Investors Should Know About Cannabis Stocks In 2020
Watch the panel webcast

There’s something that investors in the cannabis industry can’t ignore the trends. There is a trend toward removing legal barriers on both a state and local level. There is a trend toward more research dollars and permissions to study its medicinal qualities. The trend of medical legalization on a state-by-state basis. The trend for legal recreational use. There is a trend toward more foreign investment flowing to the cannabis industry. A trend toward reduced stigma for those that choose marijuana as their drug of choice. The trends all seem to add to one natural result. There is enormous opportunity for investors in an industry that is growing in every category. This panel will discuss the most important trends for investors in the industry.


Cancer Treatment: Tackling the Disease Through Innovative Strategies
Watch the panel webcast

Current revolutionary new strategies to defeat cancer will be discussed by experts at the forefront of cancer research and treatment. The medical researchers and academic will probe into the most advanced new technologies aimed at overcoming cancer including innate immunity, modulation of tumor micro-environment, treatment of solid tumors with CAR-T, cancer vaccines and cell cycle inhibitors.


Type 1 Diabetes: A Functional Cure Could Be Imminent
Watch the panel webcast

A medical cure, not an improved treatment, for T1D, will be the discussion by leading medical researchers in the field. Accelerated advancements that began by an unplanned meeting by two of our panelists during NobleCon14 hatched an idea that is now leading to promising clinical study results. The panel will also include a famous advocate and T1D sufferer, who is elevating the voice of those with diabetes with his national podcast. The novel approach toward a cure and clinical study results will be central to the presentation.


This is no ordinary investor conference. This is NobleCon.

It’s where the best of the corporate world comes together with those who want in invest in their vision.


Work hard, play hard is our mantra. So the Hard Rock, with the most technologically sophisticated conference facilities in South Florida... and its decidedly whimsical rock’n roll attitude, is the perfect environment for NobleCon16. Getting together in person is all about networking. The “After” is our take on winding down after a long, long day of back-to-backs. The best of food, drink and dialogue combined with world-class entertainment provides the momentum for doing it all again on day- two. The After Networking Classic at NobleCon16. Sleep is overrated when you’re on a business-buzz.

When was the last time you looked forward to a Monday night?

And network like it’s 1999!

It’s 8:30am, day one of NobleCon. Going to spend an amazing hour with Governor Jeb Bush, sit-in on three presentations, two one-on-ones, then lunch. A half-hour break. Four more one-on-ones, five presentations, then it’s a panel presentation at 5:30pm. I’ll use my NobleCon badge to get 20% off Hard Rock restaurants – I’m going to pick the Fresh Harvest buffet with six associates…I hear it’s a delicious spread and only 28 bucks thanks to NobleCon. It’s now 7:45pm. So what’s next?

The “After” of course. The place to unwind and expand the dialogue in a more casual environment. For NobleCon16 we’re taking over the DAER Nightclub perched above the 13-acre pool at the Guitar Hotel. We’re not going to tell you much more other than to expect the unexpected. And don’t worry about the pricey cover-charge, we’ve got you covered. And drinks are on us… featuring Toast super-premium vodka.

Meet at NobleCon Reception at 7:45pm to get your credentials and off we go. MAKE SURE YOU WEAR YOUR BADGE and we encourage you to wear your NobleCon Guitar Hotel tee… Work hard then play hard at the After!
