Sureify will host its 4th annual Life Insurance and Annuity Ecosystem Summit in Las Vegas prior to InsureTech Connect! We are excited to be able to bring back this completely free summit dedicated to the Life Insurance and Annuity Industry.
This year’s event will feature industry influencers from across the spectrum who gather to share in-market insights, take questions and discuss where the life insurance and annuity industry is now, and where it is likely to go as we proceed through this decade of technological evolution. The summit will focus specifically on how the universe of insurance companies, distributors, consultants and B2B insuretechs can expand on the massive growth and change we’ve seen over the past few years. Those who attend will get a close-up look at case studies and real-life successes -- and they’ll learn how to successfully deploy next-wave digital capabilities to achieve amazing outcomes.

This will be the ultimate life insurance and annuity event at InsureTech Connect – don’t miss it!
