Registration is now open for the 2014 Auto Insurance Report National Conference, to be held May 4-6 at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, California. We hope you will join us for our 17th annual event, which is shaping up to be an exciting and important meeting.
Click on the buttons to the right to register online for the meeting and make reservations at the Ritz-Carlton. Or download the forms to fax or mail in your registration.
Last year’s event sold out for the 16th consecutive year, and we believe this hard-working meeting rich with ideas, insights, and opportunities will sell out quickly again for 2014. We strongly encourage you to register early if you wish to attend. If you cannot attend because of a scheduling conflict, we urge you to share this invitation with someone else in your organization right away, to ensure that a space is available for them.
Auto insurance has reached a point where every insurer faces profound threats, as well as opportunities, from such disparate factors as improving auto safety, emerging demographic trends, dramatically increased reliance on data collection and analysis, continued heavy advertising spending, a revolution in marketing channels, new product developments such as usage-based insurance, advancements in operations, claims and policy management, and much more. Over the years, this meeting has explored the development of all these issues, helping insurers prepare for the coming challenges. This year will be no different, as we delve into the most important issues, both strategic and tactical, and examine what they will mean for all stakeholders in the auto insurance industry.
We are thrilled to bring the meeting to the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, California. This spectacular five-diamond property enjoys exceptionally easy access to Orange County’s John Wayne Airport (SNA), and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is not far away.
The Ritz-Carlton sits above one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, with The Monarch Beach Golf Links right next door and a long list of world class courses not far away. The hotel is surrounded by the charming towns of Laguna Beach and San Clemente, and there are numerous opportunities for dining all around, including outstanding restaurants within the Ritz-Carlton. To make the decision even easier, our discounted room rates will be available for a few days before and after the meeting.
It is also important to reserve a room at the Ritz-Carlton right away – that is a separate process from the conference registration – because the hotel is likely to sell out before the meeting, especially at our discounted room rates.
To reserve your space at the conference, visit our website, www.riskinformation.com and fill out our registration form online. There is also a link there to register for a room at the Ritz-Carlton. Our website is also the place to track developments in the conference program, learn more about our sponsors, and to see the attendee list as it develops.
You can also send payment with the attached form to our conference office. If paying by credit card, fill out the form and fax it in, or scan and email. If paying by check, mail the form and the check together.
Prior attendees will enjoy a $100 earlybird discount until January 31, 2014. In addition, there is a $100 discount for prior conference attendees and newsletter subscribers. As an early registrant and prior attendee, you will save a total of $200 off the regular registration price. Your special earlybird rate is $1399 for the entire conference.
Thanks to our history of filling hotel rooms months in advance, The Ritz-Carlton is offering Auto Insurance Report National Conference attendees deeply discounted rates as low as $320 a night. There are three ways to reserve a room in the hotel: online using the link on our website and the enclosed hotel Reservation Form; faxing the enclosed Reservation Form to the hotel directly at 949-489-5893; or calling hotel reservations at 877-266-6065. You must receive a confirmation number by email from the hotel to be assured of a room. If you do not receive a confirmation email, call the Ritz-Carlton directly.
You can reserve a room at our discounted rates until April 9, 2014, or until our room block is gone, which has always been much sooner. Details on room rates, cancellation policies, etc. can be found on the hotel Reservation Form. Rooms are blocked only for registered conference attendees.

On Monday, May 5, the sessions run from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, followed by a networking reception extraordinaire.
