Registration for InsurEXPO21 is finally open! You read that right – InsurEXPO21 will be held live and in person on September 16-17 at the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem. These plans are years and years in the making – we have long felt that a shake-up was in order and that downtown Winston-Salem was the perfect city to host IIANC’s largest, most energetic annual event.
I recently visited the Benton Convention Center, located at the heart of downtown Winston-Salem, to refresh my memory of the venue and was filled with a renewed sense of excitement for what’s soon to come. It is bright, modern, and spacious – the perfect setting for our member agents and company PARTNERS to come together to learn, network, innovate, and have fun! We anticipate our largest exhibit hall ever with well over 100 companies and vendors set up and ready to show what they have to offer to independent insurance agencies.
We’ve also thought long and hard about the programming and content for the event – what do our members need to know about to help them be a better agent today while continuing to grow and thrive so they’ll still be relevant five, ten, twenty years from now? I feel confident saying that we’ve put together a robust lineup of speakers and sessions that you are unlikely to find at any other industry event. You’ll leave InsurEXPO21 excited, motivated, and equipped with new, actionable ideas to immediately put into place in your agency.
This year’s event will be unlike any other for so many reasons. This September, as I watch attendees walk through the doors, grab their name badges, and start meandering the exhibit hall, I personally will feel a huge sense of relief and gratitude knowing that we made it through a year of virtual meetings and came out on the other side, ready and excited to be together again in person with friends and colleagues. The plethora of amazing restaurants, shopping, and nightlife in downtown Winston-Salem won’t hurt either! 😉
