7th Annual Meeting to be Held in Copper Mountain, CO
January 22 – January 25, 2004
Peak Performance Insurance Ski Conference will be presented January 22 – January 25, 2004, in Copper Mountain, Colorado. This year Insurance Journal, a leading insurance industry information source, has joined Fries & Fries Consulting, programbusiness.com and National Marketing Services to host the conference. This years conference addresses the 2004 evolving marketplace, the alternative marketplace, including captives, how to obtain new markets and companies. Also a review of Programbusiness.coms Trading Floor will be given by the co-founder and President Jeff Neilson. The panelists will include key executives from MGAs, re-insurance companies, offshore companies and insurance industry marketing specialists.
This years conference will limit the number of attendees. Mark Wells, editor of the Insurance Journal, states, "I see the Peak Performance Insurance Ski Conference as the premier gathering of insurance professionals for the purpose of bringing companies, wholesale and retail agents and the alternative marketplace together for the sole purpose of placing insurance coverages and programs." Panelists will present a look at what occurred in 2003 markets and program business, plus a discussion of whats expected to transpire during the 2004 market. These discussions will include the use of standard, surplus lines, captives and other alternative forms of coverage.
Jack Fries, noted industry consultant and speaker says "with market conditions constantly changing, well be getting an update on 2003 conditions from one of our partners in this conference, Larry Neilson, CEO of Programbusiness.com and National Marketing Services. Larry will moderate the panel of industry experts to cover not only whats happened during the past 12 months, but also whats expected to occur during the next year. Larrys invaluable input will really help attendees use the tools that are already in place to make the most of the markets available."
As a result of a vote of last years attendees, this years conference will again be held in Copper Mountain, Colorado at the Copper Mountain Resort. Neilson adds, "The Copper Mountain property has recently undergone a complete renovation. Our condos are 40 feet from the chair lifts. This makes for hassle-free access to the slopes. Several new restaurants and other retail outlets have opened since last years conference. Thats sure to make this conference a pleasurable networking opportunity as well as a productive conference, all in a fabulous ski setting. We know our attendees value the chance to make the right kinds of contacts and relax at the same time."
The program will be rounded out by discussions on the strategy needed by both retail and wholesale agencies to obtain additional preferred and non-standard markets. Each attendee will receive a free copy of Jack Fries manual entitled, "Securing a Company Appointment. There will also be a session on new automation trends designed to improve customer service, while increasing profits.
REGISTRATION PREFERENCE WILL BE GIVEN TO PREVIOUS CONFERENCE ATTENDEES AND EARLY BIRD SIGN-UPS.
