Below are some of our top recommendations for life and health insurance conferences all brokers should consider. The list includes shows that focus on Medicare, employee benefits, and more. Some are designed for agents and advisors, while others have offerings for upper management, C-suite, and other executives. 

The rise of in-person attendance is a trend for 2023, but virtual attendance or on-demand access to recordings is still an option for some events. Make sure you plan ahead to get the best deal on tickets, hotels, flights, and more.

“I loved getting to meet other agents and learning from them and the speakers. I'm a new agent so everything was very helpful. I also liked how you had us change tables every time there was a new speaker, it forced us to get out of our comfort zone and allowed us to interact with more people. Going into the conference I wasn't sure what to expect, I was blown away by everyone's friendliness and willingness to help. There were no dismissiveness or egos, which was very impressive.”
