Conference Circuit: Compliance Alliance

The Association of Insurance Compliance Professionals’ 2017 Annual Conference begins in Seattle next week. Attendance is expected to top 700.

More than 700 insurance professionals are headed to Seattle this weekend to learn from industry and regulatory experts as they explore the most current and important issues affecting the industry and prepare for what’s ahead.

Organization: Association of Insurance Compliance Professionals

Conference: 2017 AICP Annual Conference

Venue: Sheraton Seattle

City: Seattle

Following the Business Partners Showcase on Sunday evening, AICP 2017 will start on Monday with a morning keynote featuring Kai Knight. The violinist and entrepreneur will share the story of how he became an innovative composer in a field of conformity to inspire attendees to take their future into their own hands and bring their unique ideas forward. Also worth noting:

Exec-level viewpoints. Back by popular demand are the View From the Top sessions, where attendees will hear a number of state insurance commissioners discuss critical issues in today’s regulatory environment.

Fun and games. The conference mobile app has two different gamification modules. Game allows participants to earn points as they explore the app and complete basic tasks such as viewing sessions, sending messages, and tapping on banners. Then there’s Click, a scavenger hunt game where attendees snap and submit photos to earn points.

Walk it off. Outgoing AICP President Matt Brasch will continue the tradition of kicking off the conference with an invigorating three-mile walk around the host city. Attendees can join him and other AICP members for informal networking, healthy exercise, and maybe a latte at the original Starbucks location.
