Speaker proposal submission is now open for the 2022 Virtual Conference

Thank you for your interest in being a content leader at the IA Evolve virtual conference. The dates are set – September 13-14, 2022 – and we are accepting session proposals.

The focus of the event is on advancing the use of digital technologies to market, advise and service clients, while promoting operational efficiencies in independent agencies. This virtual conference reaches over 2,000 attendees, inside and outside the SIAA national network of members.

The IA Evolve Conference planning committee is now accepting session proposals for the 2022 event. If you have expertise in the intersection between insurance agencies and technology, and would like to be considered as a conference speaker, please send proposals to [email protected] by July 22, 2022. The Conference team is looking for engaging speakers that offer information and inspiration that attendees can put into practice. Please feel free to share this Call for Proposals with other subject matter experts within your network.

Proposals should be sent as an email attachment and include the following:

  • Presenter contact information, bio and photo (for conference website)
  • Presentation title
  • Abstract – Summary of what the presentation will cover (50-100 words)
  • 3 Outcomes – What do you expect attendees will learn from your session?
  • Format – presentation, panel, or interactive workshop

The conference is comprised of 2 tracks:

  1. Client acquisition, retention, and customer experience
    Client acquisition, engagement, retention are essential ingredients for growing an insurance agency. How do tech-based strategies and tactics help move the needle, deliver and close more leads, and keep your customers coming back?
  2. Scaling up, operational efficiencies and innovation
    How do successful agencies manage and sustain impressive growth? How can tech-supported strategies lead to increased profitability? Where and how can gains be realized in operational efficiencies with the right automation tools and techniques?

The sessions are 40-60 minutes long, including Q&A. Sessions may include video, panel discussions (serious consideration will be given to panels including SIAA members) and presentations. Speakers should avoid product demos or what may be considered overly sales-focused material.

Early submission is encouraged, and more than one proposal may be offered for consideration.
