ITC Agent Conference is a two-day event (April 21-22, 2016 at Hilton DFW Lakes in Grapevine, Texas) for insurance agents who want to learn, compete and grow. It's more than a user group conference. It's an event for people in the insurance industry who want to succeed in the new online.

Here's what one agent had to say about why he attends Agent Conference every year:

"Even though I have had considerable success in the digital marketing area, I am always looking for new and better ways to attract new customers and communicate with my existing customers. The world is changing at a very rapid pace so if you are not doing something to keep up, you will be left behind. A conference like Agent Conference will give you lots of ammunition to launch or advance your current marketing plan to a whole new level. It is the best investment you can make in your business this year." ~ Scott Cornelius, ECI Insurance

Still not convinced? Here are six reasons why you should attend ITC Agent Conference 2016.



  1. Learn Something

    The breakout sessions at Agent Conference are not something you attend just to check off a CE box. Every session we add to our agenda is meant to be helpful to you. Whether it's a session about using new or advanced features of our products or a session about the latest marketing trends. You will learn something in our breakout sessions you can take back to your agency. Our breakout sessions cover a range of topics, including agency marketing, agency management, sales and technology. This year we've even added an advanced track for agents who have mastered the basics. For example, if you feel like you've got a handle on the basics of email marketing, attend our advanced level breakout to go deeper into the topic.

  2. Diversity of Experts

    We've designed our conference to bring you as many speakers with different expertise we can get to speak. Our speakers include successful agency owners, SEO professionals, salespeople, email marketers, insurance agent consultants, and technology experts. These are the people you want to learn from as their expertise can help your agency compete and grow in today's marketplace.

  3. Roundtables

    How are other agents generating leads and retaining clients? How are they targeting millennials with their marketing? How are they holding their producers accountable? How are they recruiting new hires? If you've got burning questions like these you'd love to ask other successful agents, our roundtables are the place to do it. You can share your difficulties and learn what other agents have done in a similar situation. We've scheduled three different roundtables through our two-day conference so you can find one that works with your schedule.

  4. AgencyBuzz Practical

    Users of AgencyBuzz bring your laptops and questions! One of our most popular classes in 2015, the AgencyBuzz practical classes will walk you through how to create and schedule your email, how to manage your contacts and more. Got specific AgencyBuzz questions? Great! We'll answer them and show you how you can do it in AgencyBuzz.

  5. Networking

    More than agents attend Agent Conference. Insurance companies, lead providers, agency management systems, online CE providers, and other vendors in the insurance industry will be there. You will have a chance to network with these companies and make connections to benefit your agency.

  6. Fun

    While we pack a lot of information in the two days, we always make sure to have some fun too. You work hard. You deserve to come to a conference where you can not only learn but also have fun. Check out some of the fun we had last year:
