NAMIC Annual Convention - Where The Industry Comes Together, A NAMIC Event | September 21-24, 2014 | National Harbor, Md.

The Convention Experience

The NAMIC Annual Convention is THE place where the industry comes together! Where else can you take advantage of networking with your peers, receive updates on industry breaking news and trends, and meet with reinsurers and rating bureaus – all in one location? When you add top level educational content and access to more than 120 exhibit booths within the Marketplace for Mutuals, the opportunity to accomplish this much in one spot only comes along once a year.

In addition, consistently more than 95 percent of convention survey respondents say that the convention experience meets or exceeds their educational expectations. Nearly 97 percent of them would recommend convention attendance to a colleague.

Attendance Highlights:

  • Last year’s total attendance exceeded 1,900 individuals
  • More than 1,200 senior insurance executives participated
  • More than 350 P/C companies were represented

We urge you to be a part of one of the largest insurance company meetings in the country. It is NAMIC’s largest gathering of member-company representatives from various size companies, illustrating our very diverse membership.

NEW IN 2014! Closing Celebration On-line Reserved Seating

Starting with the 2014 Annual Convention in National Harbor, online seating prior to arrival at the convention will be available. The reservation process will open to registered attendees on July 23rd. While you will still have the ability to make a seat selection onsite, we encourage you to select your seats early so that you have the greatest number of seating options.
