Learn how to Increase Your Knowledge, Grow Your Network, Enhance Your Visibility in the Property Insurance Claims Industry
Connect. Learn. Engage.
This has long been the tagline for the annual Windstorm Insurance Conference. But it’s more than a slogan, it’s an actual experience at the 20th Annual Windstorm Insurance Conference (#WIND 2019) set for Jan. 30 – Feb. 2, 2019, at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort.
After this year’s devastating hurricane season, it’s even more important to stay current and connected. At WIND 2019, you’ll meet and mingle with top industry professionals and influencers to engage and discuss current trends, hot topics, and recent developments in windstorm and property insurance claims industry. And, you can typically knock out a year’s worth of your CE credits during this three-day event.
The annual WIND Conference is more than the average, status quo insurance industry event. Nowhere else can you actually learn and engage with representatives from both sides of the industry. That’s what many of our attendees say makes our event so unique, and a huge learning opportunity for them.
Here are the 9 reasons to attend the annual Windstorm Insurance Conference:
