Agents Gain Access to New Markets

July 16, 2009

SAN DIEGO – (July 16, 2009) – Gaining access to the E&S coverages and programs of new Markets is critical for the success of every agent and broker competing today. And the Exchange offers the perfect venue to accomplish that end.

“Our event is about helping agents gain access to new markets and helping the Markets sign up new agents,” explained Adam Dunford, Vice President of New Business Development for Insurance Journal, operator of “That’s all we do. We facilitate the meeting of agents and Markets and provide a format for them to do business.”

The Exchange is a networking event that brings the markets that need more agents together with the agents who need access to new markets. “One of the best features of the event is that the agents that attend are the decision makers, and are at the show specifically looking for new markets. Generally they want to become appointed to a carrier that day, and are encouraged to come with their proof of license and E&O coverage,” said Brian Bourbonnais of Superior Access Insurance Services, Inc. who attended the last Exchange event in Cerritos California.
