The insurance technology company features live demonstrations at its booth (143) during exhibit hall hours Sunday through next Tuesday (May 22-24). ACORD LOMA hosts this year’s forum at the San Diego Convention Center.

Johnston is among the Applied Systems representatives participating in the forum, and he serves as a volunteer ACORD host throughout the event.
