Marketplace for Mutuals

The power of the mutual industry can move mountains. We help people in their times of greatest need, and give them the assurance that when things get rough, someone will be there. We’ve harnessed that power into The Marketplace for Mutuals, a showcase of companies and professionals that are dedicated to the success of the mutual industry. As the social hub of the Annual Convention, the Marketplace offers attendees the opportunity to connect with colleagues during meals, enjoy lively receptions, enter for chances to win prizes, or participate in an efficient Marketplace Solution Tour. And in a spectacular show of the amazing change our mutuals can make, The Marketplace also hosts the inspiring St. Baldrick’s Head Shaving Fundraiser, which continues to be a record-breaking event for the St. Baldrick’s organization.

In addition to serving as a social and informational hub, the Marketplace also brings together resources that can impact your business, and our industry, for the better. Whether you’re looking to develop a competitive edge or a unique solution to a business challenge, our exhibitors bring tremendous value to your NAMIC Annual Convention experience. The gathering of these supportive companies and professionals from the mutual insurance industry is a big part of what makes the Marketplace for Mutuals a valuable and smart opportunity for exhibitors and attendees. And just to be sure you don’t miss a moment, we offer exclusive time dedicated to browsing the Marketplace, plus opportunities for private meetings with exhibitors.

Check back here throughout the year to begin planning your Marketplace experience.

Marketplace Solutions Tours:

The tours are an efficient way for convention attendees to discover valuable solutions and services for various aspects of business operations. With tour categories focused on an essential piece of your operation, each tour will visit a group of exhibitors offering products and services to help you in that specific business area. Each exhibitor that the group visits will have an opportunity to give brief remarks and attendees are welcome to return after the tour to any exhibitor who may be of interest.

The Marketplace Solutions Tours will take approximately 30 minutes and will depart from the tour departure area located at just inside the Marketplace. See the schedule below! Details about the exhibitors that are included within each category are provided at the beginning of each tour and within the attendee materials.
