SIR has been carefully reviewing all travel and health information surrounding COVID-19. After a thorough discussion, the SIR Board of Directors and planning committee have weighed all the information and made the difficult decision to switch the conference to 100% virtual.  There will no longer be an in-person component at the Westin Cincinnati. Although we were looking forward to being together in person, good news is that our event will be easier to access and more affordable than ever and we encourage you and your colleagues to attend! The conference will take place October 18-19 virtually. 

Keynote – Ron Davies from Safe Auto and Allstate will give the C-Suite perspective of what is happening in the insurance market and how carriers are addressing the digital transformation.

Embedded Insurance panel featuring GM, SquareTrade, and Beam Dental. 

Newcomers and innovators to the insurance industry – like Lark Health and Facebook – and how they are helping the industry venture into new territory.

We will be bringing some new diversity and inclusion insights as well, with D&I thought leaders focusing on allyship, mentorship, and sponsorship.

This is just a sampling of the general sessions & keynotes we have in store. More coming soon about the individual tracks.

Top 5 reasons to attend this conference:
1.    The theme is compelling, relevant and timely! 
2.    SIR is a carrier-led association that serves insurance research professionals! 
3.    No speed dating! SIR is small enough to develop real, lasting professional relationships. 
4.    SIR exhibitors are best in class and provide relevant solutions to advance your business! 
5.    This is not a fly-by-night event! It’s SIR’s 51st conference and you won’t want to miss it!
