What Professional and Financial Lines Specialists Say About Annual Marketplace

"In 2019 we sent more than a dozen Professional Lines focused producers to experience WSIA for the first time.  We had very productive and strategic meetings with the leadership teams of wholesale focused insurers.  It was fantastic to attend an event with trading partners committed to wholesale distribution. With market conditions as they are in 2021, we are sending a much larger contingency of professional lines brokers and hope to leave with more wholesale only solutions in this challenging market. "
- David Lewison, Executive Vice President, National Professional Lines Practice Leader, Amwins

"For many years, WSIA has provided the most comprehensive networking forum serving the wholesale E&S marketplace. For wholesale producers in the binding, program, and brokerage arenas, the WSIA Annual Marketplace has been the place to meet with virtually all of the world’s P&C carriers underwriting E&S business. WSIA also provides the venue for senior leadership of both brokers and carriers to meet in one place, which is unique in the industry. With a focus on Professional and Management Liability as a specialty at Annual Marketplace, WSIA brings that group of specialist wholesale producers and underwriters together with leadership and their P&C peers under one roof. WSIA Annual Marketplace is truly the premier networking event for the entire wholesale-focused industry." 
- John Clarke, Senior Vice President, Marketing, James River Insurance Company

"The WSIA Annual Marketplace is a conference you don’t want to miss. Having this unique opportunity to come together in this forum to learn, network, and to build relationships—particularly with others in the professional and financial lines sector of the industry—is incredibly valuable. Looking forward to 2021!" 
- Sal PollaroManaging Director, Management Liability, Markel
