What is Qwoted?

Qwoted is a free expert network: we help reporters connect with experts & we help those same experts build relationships with top reporters.

Event Date Mon Oct 18 EDT - Tue Oct 19 EDT (9 months ago)
Location Virtual
Region Americas

Newcomers and innovators to the insurance industry – like Lark Health and Facebook – and how they are helping the industry venture into new territory.

We will be bringing some new diversity and inclusion insights as well, with D&I thought leaders focusing on allyship, mentorship, and sponsorship.

This is just a sampling of the general sessions & keynotes we have in store. More coming soon about the individual tracks.

Top 5 reasons to attend this conference:
1. The theme is compelling, relevant and timely!
2. SIR is a carrier-led association that serves insurance research professionals!
3. No speed dating! SIR is small enough to develop real, lasting professional relationships.
4. SIR exhibitors are best in class and provide relevant solutions to advance your business!
5. This is not a fly-by-night event! It’s SIR’s 51st conference and you won’t want to miss it!
