Markets, the investment and corporate banking arm of BMO Financial
Group (TSX:BMO)(NYSE:BMO), will hold its 13th annual Back-to-School
Investor Education Conference on September 12, 2013, at the Grand
Hyatt Hotel in New York City. 
Education is the second largest component of the U.S. economy and is
expected to generate roughly $1.32 trillion in spending this year.
The market, currently facing the headwinds of a struggling economy
and sluggish enrollment, touches virtually every family in the U.S. 
"We believe it's crucial to understand the key drivers of spending
within this sector and what the future may hold," said conference
host Jeffrey Silber, Senior Equity Research Analyst, BMO Capital
Markets. 
The conference, the largest and longest-running institutional
investor conference focused exclusively on the education sector, will
showcase leading companies in the for-profit education industry and
will attract the industry's leading institutional investors and
specialists. Panel discussions will focus on a wide range of topics,
from education technology and so-called "edrupters" to international
expansion. 
"We are pleased to welcome leading representatives from more than 70
public and private education companies who are scheduled to present
at this year's conference, making it our largest education conference
to date and a must-attend event for the industry," said Mr. Silber. 
More than 100 senior executives from leading for-profit education
companies will participate including:(i)
