Qwest goes all out for its first full-blown analyst meeting
Sunday, January 27, 2008
Qwest will host its first full-blown analyst meeting since the
days of Joe Nacchio on Feb. 25. And the Denver-based
company is going all out.
The meeting will be held at the five-star St. Regis Hotel in New York, which boasts a
standard room rate of $750 a night. It will be held in the
hotel's rooftop ballroom from about lunchtime to 5 p.m.
Up to 200 attendees are expected, including financial and
industry analysts and media.
Scheduled speakers include Qwest CEO Ed Mueller and chief
financial officer John Richardson.
The last time Qwest held an analyst day was in December 2001 in Denver, said Qwest
spokeswoman Diane Reberger.
Nacchio served as CEO from 1997 to June 2002. Under his
successor, Dick Notebaert, Qwest held analyst breakfast
meetings. Notebaert retired last year.
