Several well-known insurers and vendors, including Arrowhead General, Calvary Insurance Services, Monarch E&S, Neilson Marketing Services, and StateFund First, among others, are exhibiting at next week's Virtual Insurance Marketplace (VIM), taking place on May 29-30. VIM is the third on-line tradeshow hosted by Direct Connection Advertising & Marketing LLC, which provides marketing and communication solutions to insurance carriers, wholesalers and the industry at large. The first VIM show held in 2010 was focused on California insurance agents, brokers and professionals. This year's focus is once again on this market due to popular demand by the exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees. Registration is free for attendees.
"With the virtual tradeshow, you don't have the expense of travel, accommodations, meals, etc. that are part of attending a show," said Anita Nevins, founder of Direct Connection Advertising & Marketing LLC. "We're bringing the benefits of a tradeshow to a wider audience, providing attendees with the ability to click on an exhibitor's booth to download company information, watch product-demonstration videos and chat online with company reps from the comfort of their office."
The Virtual Insurance Marketplace combines the latest technology in webcasting, online chats, video streaming, and avatar graphics to offer the components of physical trade shows: exhibitor booths, presentations, distribution of marketing literature and social "gatherings." It is designed to look and function like the real thing but that play out in real time in cyberspace.
