NYiDAY. Why is IIABNY hosting this event on October 14 in the heart of New York City? Why was its debut a sold-out, smashing success in 2014? Why did agents leave the event feeling good about the industry and inspired to adopt new ideas? Let me share my thoughts on the “why” behind NYiDAY.
You are busier than ever running your business, writing new accounts, servicing customers, managing your staff and maintaining solid relationships with your carrier partners. We get it—you don’t have time. You need a break. You need inspiration. You need help. You need solutions today to problems you deal with daily within your organization. This is why IIABNY is hosting NYiDAY again. The sessions, solution providers and interactions with carriers and peers will give you easily executable ideas and tools to be more efficient in your agency operations, better manage your staff, increase and improve interactions with your customers and prospects and build carrier relationships. We can give you all of this in one day!
Attendees of the 2014 event felt the passion and excitement that IIABNY leaders and staff have for protecting and growing the Independent Agency channel. NYiDAY is an event that sells out because it is different and is designed exclusively for independent agents or brokers who want to thrive and strengthen their business. NYiDAY gives us the opportunity to expose you to new ways of operating your business. We designed the sessions to push independent agents forward in a way that is not confined by CE. We handpick solution partners we think can help your business and offer new and better ways of doing things. We turn some away if they can’t meet those standards. We are more concerned about attendees being exposed to innovative solution providers than having hundreds of exhibitors.
NYiDAY is all about YOU! We do not hold this event to make money or because it is a tradition. The entire program, exhibit hall, networking opportunities and tools are designed to help independent agents and brokers now. The cool technology and digital marketing tools you will be exposed to and encouraged to try will be fun. NYiDAY gives you a day to pause and think about your operation and the future. Where do you want to go with your agency and how will you get there? Give yourself the gift of one day. Join other like-minded principals and senior managers at NYiDAY. Register today!
