Symetra In Focus: A Pre-Conference Training Opportunity

2022 brings back an AIN Sales Conference tradition: An opportunity to connect with one of the AIN Core Carriers and your peers for a pre-conference training event. Symetra invites you to attend Symetra In Focus at this year’s Conference by arriving in Atlanta one day early on Saturday, March 26th. Attendees will enjoy a casual dinner Saturday evening followed by a Sunday morning session focused on sales ideas and marketing strategies presented by both Symetra and your fellow session Attendees.

If you are interested in joining us a day early and attending the Symetra In Focus session, please indicate your interest when you register.

Important: Your attendance of the Symetra In Focus training is not confirmed until you have received a confirmation from AIN. Please do NOT commit to a flight or other travel plans until your attendance is confirmed by the AIN Member Services Team.

“Speed Dating” Continues!

At our last AIN Conference, the AIN Member Services Team scheduled hundreds of private meetings between Core Carrier Sponsors and attending AIN Member Firms. Due to popular demand, AIN will continue this format in 2022, and will reach out to AIN Member Firms in February to begin the scheduling process. AIN Member Firms are encouraged to bring their difficult cases to private meetings and prepare agendas in advance as necessary.

Monday Night is “Dine-Around” Night

Remember, Monday night is “Dine-Around” night, and once your place is secured at The Grand Hyatt, you will be receiving an invitation from one of the AIN Core Carriers for that evening. Please watch your email inboxes for “Save the Dates” and formal invitations to these dinners directly from the Core Carrier.
