The 12th National Medicare Supplement Insurance Summit, originally scheduled for May, is now set to be a live in-person conference in Chicago on Sept. 8-10, 2021, event sponsor American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance (AAMSI) announced today.
The convention and expo, titled, “Issues & Trends in Medicare Supplement Insurance,” will feature a free admission agent sales day on Sept. 8.
The postponed (2020) Medigap industry summit will take place at the Schaumburg Convention Center located a few miles from O’Hare International Airport, announced Jesse Slome, AAMSI’s director and organizer of the industry conference.
“We are optimistic that people will be traveling by September and they’ll be looking forward again to face-to-face exchanges,” Slome said. “Chicago is both large and easy to get to. People will have had their fill of Zoom calls and want the old fashioned way of bumping elbows and networking with their peers.”
The industry conference brings together over a thousand Medicare insurance professionals, focused on those who market, sell, price, administer and support Medicare insurance solutions. As part of the event, the Association offers a completely free day that consists of sales sessions and no-cost access to the industry’s exhibit hall.
“When we had to postpone the scheduled 2020 event due to Covid, almost every sponsor and exhibitor agreed to carry forward their participation,” Slome added. As a result, only a few exhibit spaces remain in what was previously a sold-out exhibit hall.”
Slome said this year’s event will include a significant focus on direct-to-consumer, call centers, technology, and sales and marketing trends.
In addition to the Medigap conference, there’s the Medicare Insurance Sales Day, dedicated for agents and brokers with multiple sessions, top national sales pros, and the largest exhibit hall dedicated to Medicare & Senior Insurance.
Details for the 2021 conference are posted on the Association’s website. To learn more go to www.medicaresupp.org/2021 or call 818-597-3205.
