The Inter-Company Marketing Group (ICMG), the non-profit association that fosters and promotes business networking among insurance and financial services professionals and firms, held its first-ever mid-year insurance networking event on May 25, 2021. The gathering of senior level executives and decision-makers from insurance carriers, fraternal and financial organizations, marketing organizations and distributors (IMOs, BGAs), operational and sales support providers, and others involved in creating business relationships and strategic alliances was held at Texas Live! in Arlington, Texas.
The following companies were sponsors of the event:
- NPC, Inc.
- Healthcare Now
- NationalWay Association
- Crum & Forster
- Gallagher Affinity | NAPA
As is the hallmark of ICMG conferences, the organizers put a strong focus on networking and making personal connections. In addition, the event featured a panel discussion on the best insurance takeaways from the pandemic year of 2020 and dine-around small group dinners.
The ICMG Annual Conference is the insurance industry's unmatched networking opportunity, where top-level executives and insurance industry thought leaders gather knowing the entire event is designed to help them build their businesses by fostering relationships and developing strategic alliances.
The event seemed to answer the question, at least for ICMG members, of whether executives are ready to get back to face-to-face meetings. The organizers anticipated that the event would be essentially a regional affair, but insurance executives from 14 states ended up on site.
Larry Sigle, ICMG executive director, said, “While we’ve held annual conferences for over 30 years, this is the first mid-year event for ICMG. I received a great deal of positive feedback on the number of opportunities the attendees uncovered at this event, and how much they were looking forward to our annual conference next February.”
The ICMG’s 2022 Annual Conference is scheduled for February 1 and 2, 2022, in Miami, Florida. More information can be found here.
