LOCUST VALLEY, N.Y., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- InvestFest(TM), the annual investment conference for members of ValueForum.com, will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 13-16, 2010 at the Paris/Bally's resort.

This year, in honor of ValueForum's 6th year, a special free membership promotion is available allowing value investors who have never before purchased a pass to ValueForum(TM) to "earn" a free year of membership by submitting an application with their best two stock picks, along with a minimum of 500 words of original analysis per pick. This limited-time-offer can be redeemed by applying at the Free Membership Promotion page. The InvestFest(TM) conference fee starting at $299 still applies.

This year's InvestFest(TM) theme will be Increase Your Odds and will focus on increasing your chances of picking the right stocks, the safest bonds, along with sessions to help you learn about reducing your risk. Look for some new topics including a couple of bond sessions, a Sunday morning Next Big Thing panel, an extended session and panel on hedging, a panel on the current state of amREITS, some new option strategies, and more.

The organizing committee for the event, comprised of volunteer members of ValueForum(TM), is planning some new twists this year, with a lunch or dinner offsite, a new Social Director to help keep members' significant others happy and busy, some fabulous new silent and live auction items to help defray the higher catering and meeting rental space costs of Vegas, some new sponsors, and most important of all, outstanding speakers and programming.

Registration for the event is now open, at ValueForum.com by clicking the InvestFest tab, and non-members interested in attending can either first join ValueForum(TM) by paying for a membership, or take advantage of the limited time free membership promotion by visiting the Free Membership Promotion page.
