Innovators to gather in Las Vegas


Very short note this week, as I've been on a wonderful but chaotic vacation with my seven siblings and families at the Jersey shore.

Although we all are still enjoying summer, time goes quickly and we are only about 8 weeks out from InsureTech Connect 2017, which is the world’s largest insurtech event, offering unparalleled access to the largest and most comprehensive gathering of tech entrepreneurs, investors, builders and forward thinking insurance industry companies.If you care about insurance innovation, plan to attend to increase your knowledge and connections at this event, scheduled for Oct. 3-4 in Las Vegas. As an official partner of InsureTech Connect, we are happy to provide our subscribers with a discounted registration link. Use the link to save $300 on the cost of registration. 

As another benefit of attending, ITL’s Innovator’s Edge and InsureTech Connect are planning several enhanced experiences before and during the 2017 conference that are exclusively for members of   Innovator’s Edge.  The enhanced experiences include:

  • "Meet the Market," a pre-conference opportunity for Innovator’s Edge innovators and insurance industry incumbents to have in-depth meetings that advance their relationship.
  • In collaboration with the National Assn. of Insurance Commissioners, a panel of regulators will provide informal, non-binding feedback for Innovator's Edge members on their innovative business plans. This pre-conference session will provide a great chance to identify any potential issues that could trigger regulatory concerns and impact market adoption.
  • And throughout the conference, Innovator's Edge and InsureTech Connect will also be conducting live video interviews of insurance innovation thought leaders and luminaries.

For any questions about the above opportunities, please contact us at  We hope to see you in Las Vegas this October!
