LIDMA is the life insurance industry's most focused gathering of high performance direct response marketers, producers, underwriters and vendors who are driving positive changes in the distribution of life insurance in order to benefit middle market consumers.
"The theme of this Fall's meeting is 'Life, Disrupted,' which tells you that change and innovation are beginning to be felt in the life insurance markets as never before," remarked LIDMA president Shervin Eftekhari. "The movers and shakers of this sector will all be at The Ritz-Carlton Tyson's Corner on September 17 and you should too."
Underwriters, producers and vendors who are interested in the direct marketing of life insurance are invited to attend.
Eftekhari continued, "Interest is running so high for this year's meeting that we have already sold out all Business Showcase sponsorship opportunities based upon word of mouth. And confirmed attendance numbers as of this date are already ahead of last year's conference attendance. It's exciting to see the pace of innovation increase in the life insurance space."
Attendance at the LIDMA Fall Meeting & Showcase is available only to LIDMA members. "This year, we're making it especially attractive for life insurers, banks and financial institutions who are eyeing this space, by offering discounted annual membership fees for first-time producers at the low cost of $495, which includes a 50% discount."
