Auto Insurance Report
National Conference 2015

Registration is now open for the 2015 Auto Insurance Report National Conference, to be held May 3-5 at The Breakers, in Palm Beach. Florida. We hope you will join us for our 18th annual event, which is shaping up to be an exciting and important meeting.

Last year’s event sold out for the 17th consecutive year, and we believe this hard-working meeting rich with ideas, insights, and opportunities will sell out quickly again for 2015. We strongly encourage you to register early if you wish to attend.

Auto insurers are fighting for a competitive edge on two fronts. The first is the modern race to gather information, understand its meaning, developing actionable insights, and put those insights into action. The second competitive front is in traditional core operations. Do your customers, employees and agents all believe you care for them? How efficient is your back office, and core infrastructure? Many insurers have learned the hard way that you can’t engage modern data tools without possessing the table stakes of excellence in operations. 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 strategic and tactical topics, and examine what they will mean for all stakeholders in the auto insurance industry.

Also, to get a better idea of how the conference topics will develop, take a look at the 2014 and 2012 conference programs we have posted.

We are thrilled to bring the meeting for the first time to The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida. This newly-renovated classic jewel of a resort enjoys exceptionally easy access to Palm Beach International Airport (PBI), and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) is less than an hour away.

The Breakers is one of America’s most famous hotels, opening in 1896 and featuring a stunning Italianate design. In addition to old-world charm, the hotel boasts five-star modern accommodations and meeting space. Some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, most exclusive neighborhoods, most exciting shopping, and outstanding golf courses are right next door. 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 Breakers 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, click on the blue button marked “Online Meeting Registration” to the right.

If you’re an analog kind of person, you can download a form to register for the conference from the “Download Forms” button. You can even mail us a check if you like, or fill out the form with a credit card and fax it to our office. To reserve a room at the Breakers offline, you’ll need to use the telephone — all the information is also in the downloadable forms. We suppose you can use a landline if you really have a need to go old school.

The fee for the meeting is $1,599, but all registrants who pay before January 31, 2015 will enjoy a $100 earlybird discount. Newsletter subscribers and prior conference attendees will also enjoy an additional $100 discount.

Thanks to our history of filling hotel rooms months in advance, The Breakers is offering Auto Insurance Report National Conference attendees deeply discounted rates as low as $325 a night. All the details on room rates, cancellation policies, etc., are outlined on the hotels online reservation site, or in the downloadable form. 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 Breakers directly.

You can reserve a room at our discounted rates until April 1, 2015, or until our room block is gone, which has always been much sooner. Rooms are blocked only for registered conference attendees.

The conference begins Sunday, May 3 with early registration and a reception with sponsors and speakers starting at 5:00 pm. On Monday, May 4, the sessions run from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, followed by a networking reception extraordinaire. Tuesday, May 5, sessions run from 8:30 am to noon, allowing time for lunch with other conference attendees and our sponsors, golf, afternoon business, or travel.

We cannot thank you enough for your support of our newsletter and conferences. Our mission is to facilitate the flow of ideas and information within the industry so that our subscribers and conference attendees can gain the competitive edge they need. If there is any way that we can do better, or if we can help you in any way, please call. We look forward to having you join us this spring. Print up some more business cards. We’ll supply the pencils. See you in Florida!

Sincerely,

Brian Sullivan, Chairman and Tracie Sullivan, Conference Director
