P&C Networking Event Returning to LA

October 14, 2008

SAN DIEGO – (October 14, 2008) – MyNewMarkets.com is returning to Los Angeles for it’s fourth event in 12 months due to the tremendous success of its first three Exchange conferences.

“We are delighted to have helped so many agents find new markets,” said Adam Dunford, Vice President of New Business Development for Wells Publishing, parent company of Insurance Journal, MyNewMarkets.com and ClaimsJournal.com. “And since demand for this event has been so high, we’re coming back to LA again.”

MyNewMarkets.com held its inaugural conference just this year on February 14, in Orange, California and followed up with a conference in San Diego and Dallas, Texas in September. “These networking events are a great way for agents to find new Markets and for MGAs, wholesalers and carriers to acquire more agents,” Dunford said. Over 300 agents have attended the three Exchange events in California and Texas, meeting with over 40 different Markets.

Unlike a typical trade show where vendors staff exhibit booths to collect business cards, at the Exchange, exhibitors come to do business with the agents and brokers in attendance. Each Market is equipped with a “trading desk” consisting of a computer, high-speed internet access, a table and four chairs and spends as much as 30 to 40 minutes meeting with prospective clients as they come through the “trading floor” area.

The next Exchange conference is scheduled for February 4th from 9:00am to 2:00pm at the Sheraton hotel in Cerritos, California. Attendance is free (free lunch included) for qualifying agents and brokers while participating markets pay to attend (entrance fee starting at $1500).

To register to attend the Los Angeles Exchange or for additional information, go to www.MyNewMarkets.com/exchange or call the Insurance Journal sales team at 619-584-1100 ex. 148.
