"It was my first attendance, so it's hard to pinpoint what stood out the most. Overall, I thought the conference was well organized, and the attendee's were incredibly friendly and willing to share their stories. In previous networking events, I've noticed some folks are more reserved or hesitant in communicating. I did not witness that at the ICMG conference. It seemed as if nobody was a stranger to one another, which is exactly what a networking event should be like. I look forward to attending more conferences in the future."

Speed networking was a great way to identify who to have further discussions with.

"I have been an ICMG member and/or exhibitor for over 13 years. ICMG provides our company with multiple resources to build new sales and marketing relationships. If you research the current members, attendee, and exhibitor lists, you will find new carrier relationships, new distribution partners, and vendors who provide innovative sales and marketing tools. Any and all will assist you with growing or improving your company’s business model."

-Ed Porter III, President/CMO, Secure Marketing Partners LLC

 

“From the App being released pre-conference so that meetings could be set in advance, to seeing who was coming and being able to track with the notes the conversations we had, the ICMG’s Annual Conference put me in contact with some great new connections and solidified some current ones.”

-Megan Urbaniak, Director, Business Development, WebInsure Benefits

 

“Exhibiting at ICMG worked out very well for our company. We made many new connections and see great potential to assist fellow ICMG members and their customers with our services.  We left Orlando believing this was a valuable investment for our company.”

-Mark Silverman, Bodden Partners

 

"The ICMG is the one conference that I attend each year that I know for a fact I will walk away from with new business opportunities. The entire purpose of the meeting is to network and make deals, and the ICMG board and staff design every aspect of the conference with that in mind."

-Greg Bruner, Senior Vice President Michael Edwards Direct, Inc.

 

"I attend the ICMG Annual Meeting in order to learn about what’s going on in the life insurance industry and to network with a variety of important players. The fraternal benefit system is a niche that can at times be too insular. I hope to inform our society leaders of its value and to encourage more society leaders to participate."

-Allison Koppel, Executive VP American Fraternal Alliance
