Are you looking for an opportunity to promote your firm, in a unique way, to benefit brokers in the Greater Toronto Area?

We have been running educational events for over six years with five Continuing Education (CE) seminars each year.  Last years events were all highly attended, with registration numbers ranging from 120 to 150 and up to 275 with another “infamous” Trillium seminar. 2018 looks poised to grow even further with space to seat up to 300+ attendees at our Vaughan location.

Both those that attended, and those that sponsored the seminars, reported that they were quite pleased with the content, the interactive nature of the seminars, the outcomes, takeaways and the events overall. As a result, we will continue to offer the opportunity to sponsor the seminars in the coming year.

The target audience for these events are brokers that either specialize in employee benefits or wish to.  The meetings are interactive to encourage open discussions.  Attendees want to be there (they are paying to attend!) and are interested in the info being conveyed and not just in getting CE credits.  As such, it presents you with a very affordable opportunity to promote your firm to a great audience, that requires very little manpower on your part.

“What we really like with CGIB sponsorship is that we are focusing completely on our target market, that being “Group Brokers”.   A lot of other seminars, by different organizations, tend to draw more individual agents than true group advisors.”
Rick Rowe | Regional Group Manager – Wawanesa Life Insurance Company
