The Underwriting Agencies Council has launched a sponsorship proposal for its 2018 Sydney Underwriting Expo.

The proposal is an industry first and responds to requests from insurers, agencies and service providers seeking greater involvement in UAC’s premier event.

The Sydney Underwriting Expo is on Friday 9 March 2018 at the Hilton Hotel, 488 George St, Sydney.

UAC General Manager William Legge said the proposal was developed to further enhance the event’s reputation, which has grown significantly since it began 19 years ago.

UAC developed a wide range of sponsorship options to cater for the varied budgets of those who had expressed interest over several years in having increased event participation.

“Four of the available options were snapped up very quickly and we’re in talks with other potential sponsors,” he said.

Registrations to exhibit and/or attend a pre-Expo breakfast have already opened via the UAC website and both are filling fast.

Mr Legge said UAC had altered the Sydney Underwriting Expo format this year to give brokers more face-to-face time with exhibitors. Instead of a formal lunch with a guest speaker, the Expo will remain open until 2.30pm with a buffet lunch and drinks provided free for all brokers.

UAC will again use its events app to enable brokers to pre-register and use their smart phones to scan exhibitors’ QR codes to obtain CPD points and gain information about exhibitors.

More than 500 brokers are expected to attend and the venue now has room for more than 100 exhibitors.
