The NIBA 2019 Convention theme is: One Voice – Together Towards Tomorrow. Now more than ever before brokers must present a united front to be very clear about the value being delivered – to clients, to insurers, and to the community at large.
NIBA Convention Chair, Steven Hill believes that the 2019 NIBA Convention will be where the entire profession comes together and that this conference is the most important yet for intermediaries, “Our theme for Convention 2019 of One Voice – Together Towards Tomorrow is our delineation that NIBA is the representative body and spokesperson for ALL insurance brokers Australia Wide.”
He explains that brokers need to gear up to handle ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ natural disasters more often, they need to be prepared for regulatory changes as well as the general insurance commissions review in three years.
Hill is very clear about the value proposition for brokers travelling to NIBA2019 in the Gold Coast, “We believe NIBA 2019 is the imperative convention to attend for brokers to gain a clear and unbiased view across the important topics of the day. Attendees will hear from leaders in our profession; from regulators on their thoughts and roles and also learn new skills from thought provoking presenters.”
He goes on to say that the expo hall has been revitalised based on feedback from the industry and that this year’s program see a return of the traditional afternoon networking, “Brokers will have a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new connections to benefit their business. And all of the education will be wrapped up each day by fabulous evening events to allow everyone the chance to relax and unwind.”
The 2019 NIBA Convention will take place 14 – 15 October at The Star Gold Coast and super early bird registrations will open shortly.
