Networking. VCIA Conference brings you the best networking you’ll find in the industry! Whether it’s during our networking receptions, dinner on Church Street, golf tournament, or during a casual meeting at the bar, you will nurture relationships with the captive community, find business opportunities, and have those face-to-face conversations that yield productive results.
Education. With input and resources provided by dozens of captive professionals, it takes nearly the whole year for VCIA to put together nearly 30 educational sessions/discussion groups for the conference. And it’s completely worth it! You will learn from nationally recognized captive experts and gain insights from some of the most prestigious organizations in the world. You will hear directly from captive owners about their needs and challenges, and you will enjoy riveting Q&A discussions that are designed to elicit new ideas and ways of thinking.
Credit. Part of your professional advancement may rely on credit, which is why attending our conference is a boon not only for you but for the value you bring to your company. In one place with us, you can gain a large amount of CPE, VT CLE, CRE and ICCIE of professional credits through our high-quality educational sessions.
Access. Before networking with people, you need access to them, which is what our conference provides. Hundreds of captive professionals mixing together, plus over 70 businesses sharing new products and services in the exhibit hall. For three days at our conference, you will have productive access to who and what you want.
Current Trends. Come away prepared to anticipate needs and solve challenges for the captive industry in 2023 and beyond, by attending the popular “Hot Topics” session with Vermont DFR Commissioner Sandy Bigglestone. Some sessions will feature up-to-date news on cyber and InsurTech, others will offer case studies that cover emerging risks. Educational programs at the conference are created with the intent and purpose of understanding emerging and current risks, and how captive programs relate to those risks.
Variety. This is not your grandfather’s conference of sitting in an audience and being lectured at. Our conference is dynamic, interactive, and innovative—our TED-like Ignite Talks, Captive Immersion program, captive owner tour of “power hour” networking lunches, and exhibitor reception are all proof of this!
Inclusivity. We intentionally curate our conference program so it meets the needs of everyone in the industry, like young professionals, seasoned executives, service providers, regulators, etc.—every stakeholder is considered! That means the conference offers a balance of beginner, intermediate, and advanced captive materials, ensuring that our quality educational sessions will be a benefit to everyone.
Inspiration. Seeking to reinvigorate your career or business, looking out for new perspectives that will motivate you? Look no further than our Keynote Speakers, who will be announced in the coming months!
Camaraderie. It’s the many informal moments at our conference that makes it so special—spending time with your colleagues, strengthening your board relationships, reconnecting with someone at lunch or in the hallway. Our industry blends the professional and the personal so well and you won’t find a better example of that than at our conference.
Burlington. Consider coming earlier or staying later! Make it a family vacation! Sail out on Lake Champlain, enjoy Vermont’s pristine outdoors. At the conference day’s end, head out to Church Street with your colleagues and new friends to take in the state’s best entertainment and nightlife.
