2019 Life Insurance Conference

What's Next? Setting the Agenda for Life

4/1/2019 - 4/3/2019
Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, Baltimore, MD

Overview

Who Attends

Professionals involved in the development, operations, marketing, distribution, technology or administration of life insurance products. XXX

Highlights

Insurance company leaders have a lot on their plates. They are concerned with over-regulation, the speed of technological change, changing customer behavior and competition from new market entrants. Essentially, the entire insurance business model is being disrupted. How do you stay ahead of the curve?

There are many variables that are not within the industry’s control. But how effectively insurers anticipate, prepare, and adapt to their shifting circumstances, both strategically and operationally, is well within their control, and can help differentiate them in the market.

The companies that develop a meaningful competitive advantage will design and implement digital platforms that can handle disruption. They will build scalable systems, deliver an end-to-end customer experience, and change their business models which will help them improve how they go to market.

Attend the 2019 Life Insurance Conference to network with your peers and leading industry experts as we look at the key trends that will shape our future and set the agenda for Life.

This premier conference offers more than 30 workshops on topics including product innovation, distribution, markets, technology, administration and regulation. This is your opportunity to join the crucial dialogue.
