Since 1981, NAILBA's Annual Meeting has showcased the latest trends, technologies, and innovations across the insurance and financial services industry and wholesale brokerage distribution channels.  Over the years, our annual meeting has become known across the industry as the most influential convention for America's independent brokers and brokerage professionals.

NAILBA-member Brokerage General Agencies (BGAs) produce over $20 billion in annualized premiums. The NAILBA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of independent life brokerage agencies. From Member Agency C-level executives and staff (re: case Managers, admin, operations, etc.) to carrier executives and senior leadership teams to 100+ sponsors and exhibitors who provide BGA products and services, this gathering is where the brokerage industry meets.

Why Exhibit at NAILBA?

Unlike many other conventions and industry events, the NAILBA Exhibit Hall is part of our Annual Meeting experience. The NAILBA Team plans for various ways of driving foot traffic to our exhibitors. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Opening Reception in the Exhibit Hall (500+ Attendees): The Exhibit Hall will open with a ribbon cutting, libations toast and two hours of attendee excitement with entertainment, open bar and a re-imagined food offering. 

  • Exhibit Hall Passport: From Apple Watches to laptop computers to iRoombas to Bose Noise Canceling Headphones to gift cards, attendees will be encouraged to visit participating exhibitors for a passport stamp. Completed passports will be entered in the prize raffle. Participation by the exhibitors is limited to a specified amount of companies. Be sure and confirm your “destination” on the NAILBA passport. 

  • Mooers Dinner Reception: The Douglas Mooers Award for Excellence is the National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies’ most coveted and prestigious award. This award is presented annually at the Mooers Dinner. Prior to the Mooers Dinner is a reception for all event attendees (400+ at 2018 Reception!). The reception features a live charitable auction that supports the NAILBA Foundation. This reception will take place in the center (Town Square) of the exhibit hall and offer exhibitors additional time to network with attendees.

  • NAILBA Product Preview: The NAILBA Product Preview is a unique advertising opportunity, with substantial savings, for exhibitors and sponsors who want added exposure at the largest brokerage event in the industry.  This special preview is distributed as an outsert with the fall issue of Perspectives magazine to approximately 1800 BGA principals, insurance and financial service C-suite executives and professionals,  and NAILBA exhibitors and sponsors.  The product preview guide will also be distributed at the annual NAILBA Annual Meeting to 1,000+ registered attendees.

  • Preferred Partners Network: Promoted year round to our member agencies, NAILBA lists various industry service providers and encourages the support of these industry associates.
  • Convention Attendees List: Pre and/ or post-promotion to the Annual Meeting attendance List.
