Kevin Mead, CEO of VCIA, said, "The industry at large is exploding with growth, and our conference always keeps pace and meets the needs of those who enter the captive space for the first time and those who continue to build out their captive knowledge and networks."

In a recent statement, VCIA shared the following key highlights of this year's conference.

  • 18 CPE/CRE/CLE and ICCIE-eligible educational sessions, led by preeminent speakers and covering the latest captive trends/emerging risks, including (but not limited to) cyber and AI, nuclear verdicts, creative uses for captives, and how to successfully form and maintain a captive with evolving regulatory standards. See the full conference schedule here.
  • Access to industry leaders, 75 exhibitors, and the Vermont regulatory team. Attendees will build impactful relationships and find business opportunities at networking lunches, special receptions, and the exhibit hall, a sold-out space ripe for client and prospect engagement.
  • A cooperative conference experience, especially for captive owners, who will enjoy peer-to-peer contact and direct information exchanges through an exclusive captive owner lunch, captive owner forum, and a tour of OnLogic, a leading computer manufacturer.
  • 20th Anniversary ICCIE Celebration Reception, plus the popular exhibitor reception and off-site Hotel Vermont party. #VCIA2024 celebrates where the industry is and where it's heading.

"It's not just the professional credit and the comprehensive scope of educational offerings. It's the atmosphere, the energy. VCIA is truly where the captive world comes to meet," said Maigh Wright, conference chair from Marsh.

Tracy Hassett, VCIA board chair, added, "We're proud of how much work we put into this industry flagship event. You're attending the biggest, you're attending the best, and you have access to everyone."

Sandy Bigglestone, who will lead the "Situation Room with Sandy Bigglestone" session, put it this way: "Vermont is the gold standard of captive expertise, and that's in no small part due to the robust educational and networking value the VCIA conference provides."

Established in 1985, VCIA serves as an advocate for its nearly 400 members, offering lobbying support and facilitating captive education and information-sharing.
