SIAA, the largest national alliance of independent insurance agents in the U.S. will host the first-of-its kind, IA Evolve virtual conference for independent agencies. The conference will be held on September 17th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. eastern time. It is designed to help independent agencies on innovation and insurtech.
SIAA states, “IA Evolve will look and feel like a traditional conference — providing an interactive experience with keynote speakers, a panel of digitally focused independent agents, eight interactive workshops, live chats, a networking lounge and exhibitors in a virtual tradeshow.”
The conference is designed to provide agents with a variety of tools and information through interactive presentations and workshops. The two keynote speakers are Matt Masiello and Tyler Asher. Masiello is the Chief Executive Officer of SIAA and he will be presenting over “Insurance Distribution- The Future has Arrived.” Asher is the President of Independent Agent Distribution, Liberty Mutual Business Lines and Safeco Insurance and he will be presenting over “Transforming our Industry Together.”
“SIAA continues to make technology and adoption of innovative strategies by independent agencies a priority,” said Masiello. “We expect thousands of agents to attend and leave with key takeaways from leading experts about the digital tools they need to succeed in the years ahead. I believe now is one of the most exciting times to be an independent insurance agent as long as we continue to evolve and integrate digital capabilities to increase efficiencies and meet consumer demands.”
There will be presentations and workshops over a variety of topics that run throughout the day.
"The agenda is packed! There is something there of value for every agency and every person working in our industry. I believe there is much there to be learned for people in the captive and exclusive agent industry as well," states OAA CEO Tony Caldwell.
Registration is now open to any insurance industry professional and there is no charge to attend the event. For more information or to register, visit the website iaevolve.com.
