Dates Set for Agent Summit 2014

LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the annual Agent Summit have announced that the 2014 event is scheduled for March 10–12 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

The conference is riding a hot streak as it enters its fourth year. The 2013 event set new records for attendance, sponsorship and exhibit space, drawing more than 550 attendees, 72 sponsors and 42 exhibitors. The first event, in 2011, counted 150 attendees and was considered a success.

“We have experienced tremendous growth, and we’re extremely grateful for the support from attendees and sponsors,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Agent Entrepreneur and F&I and Showroom. “However, I would be remiss in failing to thank Randy Crisorio, our advisory board chair, for the work put in by him and his team to craft a stellar agenda.”

Last year’s slate included numerous educational sessions focused on agency business development and F&I training, three keynote speeches and the first-ever Participation & Reinsurance Symposium. Gesualdo confirmed the Reinsurance Symposium, which attracted a standing room-only crowd in March, will return for a second year. The full agenda will be available later this year.

“Adding the Symposium and agency-development sessions turned out to be a good move,” Gesualdo said. “We won’t alter the formula too drastically, but we’re always looking for ways to improve. I’m looking forward to seeing what the advisory board comes up with.”

Registration for Agent Summit 2014 will open soon. For exhibition and sponsorship opportunities, contact Eric Gesualdo at (727) 612-8826 or email hidden; JavaScript is required.
