Saddle up in Saskatoon!
OCTOBER 17 & 18, 2019 | SHERATON CAVALIER HOTEL, SASKATOON
The New Frontier
The insurance landscape is changing: Technology is disrupting businesses and consumers alike. Regulatory, workforce, and economic realities are posing new operational questions. And the customer experience is becoming increasingly interactive, personalized, and on-demand.
Welcome to The New Frontier for Saskatchewan insurance brokers. Sure, there is more risk out on the horizon today than ever before, but there is also a wide-open field of opportunity — if you’re ready to think beyond the status quo. That’s what the 2019 IBAS Convention is all about.
It's time to saddle up!
