Scenes From the 2019 Schwab IMPACT Conference

More than 5,000 attendees spent the week in San Diego at the Schwab IMPACT Conference, hearing from the likes of Charles Schwab himself and attending events like a One Republic concert.

The Schwab IMPACT is widely considered one of the largest financial advisor conferences of the year. This year's conference, headlined by Charles Schwab himself, was held in San Diego and boasted more than 5,000 attendees.

Sessions focused on the reasoning behind and impacts of $0 fees, China trade, the registered investment advisor landscape, technology innovations and integrations, and more

In addition to all that learning, there was The Exchange, featuring more than 350 firms serving the financial advisory industry, promoting their services and giving out stuffed spiders, tiny robots, candy, water bottles and even personalized T-shirts.

It culminated with a concert at Petco Park—home of the San Diego Padres—featuring OneRepublic and a hot air balloon (yes, really).
