Insurance Age launches new broker-only technology event
04 May, 2011
A new event to help bring brokers up to date with the latest trading technologies and how they can improve their businesses, has been launched.
E-broking is aimed at brokers keen to learn more about all things online, from trading products with insurers to getting the most out of social media.
Held at Ascot Racecourse on 22 June 2011, e-broking will combine high quality and relevant content with live e-trading demos. Its aim is to bring together brokers, insurers and software houses in an attempt to clear the fog that surrounds online trading and give brokers practical advice on why, how and when they should be tapping into its benefits.
Huge sums of money are being invested in commercial e-trading, but the sheer volume of offerings can leave brokers somewhat confused. E-broking intends to provide the space for explanations, demonstrations and, crucially, questions, bringing the industry up to speed in this fast-paced area of the market where no one can afford to get left behind.
The event will include live demos from sponsors Powerplace, Acturis, Aviva and Ace Europe. These face-to-face meetings will give brokers the opportunity to experience just how efficient e-trading can be on various different platforms and provide free, on-the-spot training.
