LAS VEGAS — Organizers of the third annual Agent Summit have announced that the 2013 conference, scheduled for March 4–6 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, will kick off with a half-day reinsurance symposium. The symposium will begin at 12 p.m. on Monday, March 4, and end at 5 p.m., before the opening-night keynote and reception for Agent Summit.

Show chair David Gesualdo said the addition of the reinsurance symposium was spurred by an overwhelming response to “Reinsurance: Painting the Right Picture for Your Dealers,” a one-hour workshop at Agent Summit 2012 that was helmed by United Development Systems’ Randy Crisorio and Greg Petrowski of GPW and Associates.

“Reinsurance is well past the ‘hot topic’ stage in our industry,” Gesualdo said. “It has grown to accommodate more dealers and more types of products. Dealers are profiting. Agents are profiting. And the demand cannot be ignored: We had a packed house for the workshop in March, and the online version is still getting hits.”

The symposium will be emceed by attorney James S. Ganther, Mosaic Compliance Services. “The variety and potential complexity of participation programs make this symposium worthwhile,” said Ganther, “and the enormous level of interest in this topic makes it timely.”

Agent Summit 2013 is scheduled for March 4-6 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Registration will open October 22nd. For information about exhibition and sponsorship opportunities, contact David Gesualdo via email or call (727) 947-4027.
