"I attended ITA Live for the first time in March 2016 and then again 2017. The conference far exceeded my expectations and blew away other insurance industry conferences I've attended in the past. It brought together the top leaders and innovators in the insurance industry in an intimate and relaxed environment. I was amazed at the exciting developments within our industry and met creative entrepreneurs in our space. ITA Live is great mix of networking and learning with very well organized and dynamic speakers. I am looking forward to what the 2018 has in store for us!"

"I found the 2016 and 2017 ITA Live Conferences to be a great investment of my time. The speakers and topics, focused on real, actual innovation, were uniformly excellent and the scale of the event was such that you could attend every session of interest and interact with whoever you wanted to. From the breath-taking potential of IBM’s Watson, to how to launch a technology-based insurance company, to building compelling mobile apps or using drones in claims handling it was an interesting and thought-provoking two days which showed our industry in a new and intriguing light."

"Attending the event was well worth my time. I was able to attend the inaugural event, I was not sure what to expect. Was it going to be another “sales” event, or would the event and participants challenge me to think differently and give me new ideas to solve problems? Well, it was the latter—not a sales meeting at all. The presentations, networking events, and times to just chat were relevant to problems many of us face today and I left with more tools in my ‘tool bag.’ The blend of participants, between business and technical, was excellent and showed that if we work together we make an excellent team and can solve many, if not most, of our business problems. I highly recommend this event!"

"The ITA LIVE conference is one of the most beneficial in our industry. Attendees can expect valuable and timely content through the sessions and there are many opportunities throughout the event to network with your peers in an unrushed and pleasant setting. If you are looking for a relevant insurance technology event to attend, I recommend attending ITA LIVE in 2018."
