On behalf of the National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) and the Convention Organisation Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to be part of the NIBA 2019 Annual National Convention at the Star Event Centre on the Gold Coast.

This year our theme is One Voice – Together Towards Tomorrow, because now, more than ever before, we must present a united front and work together to demonstrate the nature and quality of advice and services provided by insurance brokers.

It is up to each and every broker to understand developments, work through challenges, and find the best way to shape their approach to their clients, business and community. We will continue to face challenges as an industry, so we must be prepared for this.

As with the Hobart convention last year – which was rated by many as the best in recent times – the 2019 Convention will offer attendees a clear and unbiased view of the important topics of the day. Whether you’re a Principal Member, senior broker or Young Professional, the 2019 NIBA Convention promises to equip delegates with the skills and knowledge to navigate the road that lies ahead.

Delegates can expect to hear from, industry leaders, regulators and thought-provoking presenters in scintillating sessions on a range of relevant topics. In the expo hall, as per your feedback, we welcome the return of streamlined, uniform stands, and afternoon networking to provide brokers with a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new connections to benefit their business.

The NIBA Convention is the only event on the insurance industry calendar that truly brings the entire insurance community together, regardless of cluster group allegiances, brokerage size and reach, and age of delegates.

We meet to celebrate, to learn, to build relationships – and to have a good time as we do so.

We do hope you’ll join us.
