Top insurance professionals are coming together for the industry's largest agent event April 28-30 in Orlando, FL. NetVU Conference 2011 will provide a three-day forum for agents, company executives and technology leaders to enhance knowledge and boost productivity through networking and education.

"It's vital for insurance professionals to connect with their peers and learn, and NetVU conference makes those moments possible,” commented NetVU Chairman of the Board Carl R. Schlotman III, CPCU, CIC, president & CEO of CAI Insurance Agency of Cincinnati, OH. “When NetVU members get together to share ideas and knowledge, they and their clients benefit greatly.”

Themed “The Magic Is in the Message,” 2011 NetVU Conference underscores the power of networking and learning from peers. “When members get together, they exchange ideas, get inspired and discover new solutions to take back home with them,” said Schlotman. “The ‘magic’ of the conference theme reflects the fact that ‘a-ha’ moments abound at the NetVU Conference.”

The 2011 NetVU Conference, the 35th since the group’s founding, includes keynote presentations; a broad and deep education curriculum on technology, workflow and business topics; one of the industry’s largest exhibit areas; and ample opportunities for networking.

“The goal of the conference is to heighten NetVU members’ productivity and profitability,” Schlotman said. “With more than 200 classes, custom tracks for each group of Vertafore management system users and an executive briefing education track for agency leaders, every attendee will go home better equipped to help his or her agency compete.”

NetVU’s exhibit area will include insurance carriers, technology providers and service providers. Key among these will be Vertafore, providing the latest updates on its range of agency management systems: AIM, AMS360, BenefitPoint, FinancePro, InStar, Prime and Sagitta.
