2020 Medicare Supplement Insurance Conference Program - Program for National Medigap Insurance National Summit

SPECIAL INFORMATION FOR OUR 2020 SPONSORS AND EXHIBITORS

I want to start with a personal note to the many sponsors and exhibitors who have personally written to us with such kind words.  We are going to work even harder to make the 2021 Summit even bigger and better.  With your help, we will raise a glass at the opening reception to toast together.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call Mindy or me.

INFORMATION and WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW FROM EACH COMPANY

INFO:  Is the 2020 conference in Schaumburg, IL cancelled?
Yes.  It is being rescheduled to Tuesday, June 1, 2021  (set-up day) through Friday, June 4, 2021.  Same location; the Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center in Schaumburg, IL.
No date ever works for everyone …. but hopefully it will for MOST everyone.


RSVP:  SPONSORSHIP AND EXHIBIT BOOTH LOCATION OPTION
If you agree to carry forward your commitments and payments, it will be enormously helpful to us .  I have already prepaid a significant amount to the hotel and next week will be signing the contract to lock in 2021.

IF YOU AGREE TO CARRY FORWARD: Please Email Mindy mindy@medicaresupp.org
This will ensure all the same terms: booth(s) location, any extras, included registrants, program ad, etc.

IF YOU PREFER TO CANCEL, Please also Email Mindymindy@medicaresupp.org
Cancelling is agreement to release your exhibit space(s), etc.  Your spaces will be immediately offered to others who might want a better booth location.  We will refund monies within a reasonable amount of time.

UPGRADING YOUR BOOTH LOCATION.  I am hoping very few sponsors / exhibitors will cancel.  We were on track to a record-breaking event.   If you want to be notified when we know what booth spaces (if any) become available, please Email Jesse   jslome@medicaresupp.org


INFO:  Registrants using your free slots.
If you already submitted your (free) registrant information to Mindy, please feel free to communicate with these individuals regarding the cancellation of the 2020 event.  We basically will be starting over for the 2021 event – sometime after the Fall.

INFO:  Registrants who paid on their own.
We will send an email to all conference registrants who used the online registration system to register.


INFO:  Hotel room cancellations.
Everyone who booked a room at the Renaissance (as part of the conference block) will receive an email confirming the cancellation of their room and the crediting of any deposits that may have been paid.  The hotel says it could take as much as 30 days for the credit to appear.  We are waiting for information from the Embassy Suites but I’m sure they will do the same.

CARRY FORWARDS NOT POSSIBLE:  We will start a new hotel room block and everyone will need to make new reservations.  We’ll notify all.


INFO:  Will there be an Agent Free Day in 2021?
Absolutely.  Wednesday, June 2, 2021.  Would anyone like to underwrite the cost of a LIVE national online feed?  See …  already thinking ahead!

INFO:  What about the Main Conference program?
Sometime in the early Fall, I will start working with key people to make sure we have a great and relevant program.  If you’d like to be part of the session planning process … call me.  I keep very good notes!


If I have other questions, who should I contact?
We know there will be questions and will do our best to respond as quickly to each one.  Please email jslome@medicaresupp.org (Exhibit / Sponsor / Speaker questions) or mindy@medicaresupp.org (registrant questions).

We look forward to seeing you all in June 2021 … where we will celebrate the growth of the Medicare Supplement insurance industry … and our good fortune.  Our very best to you all.
