Testimonials from previous attendees:
“As a first time attendee of IMCA’S Annual Conference and Showcase Gala, I had high expectations for the takeaways I would have from the event and the amount of networking I would experience with marketing and communications professionals in the insurance industry. This year’s event did not disappoint: the speakers were informative and relevant, the breakout sessions were engaging, and the networking was meaningful. I really appreciated being able to learn with and from the other attendees who were facing the same hurdles as my team. The board does a phenomenal job of putting together an impactful agenda and a fun theme for the attendees to enjoy.”
-Jane Kim, Communications Manager, Allstate Business Insurance
“The IMCA conference in Baltimore was a great experience for me. The presentations were interesting and relevant, and the setting was friendly and relaxed. I enjoyed seeing the best work of other companies in the Showcase. I look forward to attending future IMCA events, along with others from our Marketing and Communications teams.”
-Mark McBeath, Vice President, Marketing, The Cincinnati Insurance Companies
“It’s always a challenge to get out of the office for industry meetings. Everyone is stretched for time. If you’re a professional insurance marketer and you can get to just one industry event in 2017, I wouldn’t miss the IMCA annual conference. You’ll find a highly relevant program, of course. And it’s really fun chatting with all the cool cats over cocktails.”
-Peter van Aartrijk, Principal, Financial Services, CHROMIUM | vivid shining brands
