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.
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.

Marketplace for Mutuals Activities
Numerous activities are scheduled throughout the Marketplace to increase attendee traffic and exhibitor visibility.
NAMIC Central is the anchor of the marketplace, offering attendees and exhibitors a welcoming place to sit and talk.
Unique and interesting activities make the Marketplace a destination of its own. This year the marketplace will showcase the antics of the Racing Presidents, the national monuments in ice, and other exciting things to experience.
Comfortable lounges are mixed within the Marketplace and provide the attendees a place to sit plan their visits to the exhibitors or offer an alternative meeting space away from your booth.
Various meals are served within the Marketplace and coffee is served in the hall during show hours
On Monday afternoon, the Marketplace is the site of a attendee reception featuring a must-be-present-to-win grand prize drawing that traditionally attracts more than 600 attendees.
Tuesday afternoon features an ice cream social and organized exhibitor raffles which allow the exhibitors an opportunity to raffle off a prize.
NAMIC's strength is much the same as it was when it was founded in 1895; members are able to accomplish objectives more effectively as a group than as separate companies. Each member has the opportunity to guide and direct the association by participating in one of the many board, committees, task forces and working groups. NAMIC members also gain strength by having access to a wide variety of products and services.
