What is IVANS Connect?

IVANS Connect is the industry’s only conference dedicated to advancing the industry’s exchange — connecting the digital ecosystem of insurers, MGAs, solutions providers, agencies and insureds through digital technology.

Why is IVANS Connect not a physical event this year?

Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our customers, partners and employees. We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure we are taking every precaution to look after our community. After careful consideration, we’ve decided there will be no physical event this year. Instead, we will reimagine IVANS Connect as a virtual experience September 16, 2020.

What can I expect to gain from attending a virtual IVANS Connect?

Hear from IVANS leaders and industry experts; be the first to see new products plus, a host of new innovation to our current market-leading products; and connect online with your colleagues from across the globe. Gain access to all this and more from the safety of your own home.
