NAILBA 28, the National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies’ (NAILBA) annual meeting, was deemed “a resounding success” by exhibitors and delegates alike.
Held November 12-14, 2009, in Hollywood, Florida, the event attracted 1,250 attendees and 110 exhibiting companies. The insurance brokerage industry’s premiere event, NAILBA 28 featured education and networking opportunities for this specialized community.
“The packed training sessions and keynote addresses and the well-attended special events demonstrate the industry’s desire for an event with an emphasis on learning and networking,” said NAILBA Chairman Gary Dworkin, CLU, RHU. “This year’s event provided sales leads and nurtured existing client relationships for companies operating within the life insurance industry’s independent distribution channel.”
Exhibitor’s feedback was overwhelmingly positive.
“This is very much our target audience–it’s how we market our services, and we’ve found there are lots of decision makers here,” said exhibitor Lowell Aronoff, CEO of Toronto-based CANNEX Financial Exchanges Limited. “This is our third or fourth year, and the nice thing about coming to NAILBA is that, if the people see our product and they like it, they’re the ones who can make the decision to buy it.”
Not all exhibitors were on hand to make a sale.
