ITA, InsNerds Collaborate to Enhance ITA LIVE 2020 Content and Coverage

The Insurance Technology Association (ITA) will be partnering with Insurance Nerds (InsNerds) at this year’s ITA LIVE 2020 executive event – April 5-7 at the Diplomat Hotel in Hollywood, Fla. -- with the aim of enhancing content and engagement. InsNerds will participate in sessions, create original content via live streaming podcasts, and gain the ability to offer registration discounts to insurers in the InsNerds network.

Insurance Nerds ( is the go-to source of transformational talent delivery and career management in the insurance ecosystem. With a background in traditional insurance via careers at Nationwide and other leading insurers, co-founders Carly Burnham and Tony Cañas set out to build a community dedicated to the education and advancement of insurance professionals both new and old. Today, via the Insurance Nerds website, an active Slack channel, the “Profiles in Risk” podcast, and various blog, article, and book publishing initiatives, Insurance Nerds is a positive voice providing insights into and influence over the potential future and direction of this important industry.

The ITA/InsNerds partnership will offer insurance executives within the InsNerds network discounted attendance to ITA LIVE, and the InsNerds co-founders will participate in sessions during the event as well. Additionally, InsNerds will be creating unique and valuable content while onsite by interviewing attendees and conference sponsors in a special edition of the popular “Profiles in Risk” podcast.

“ITA LIVE is not and never will be a ‘big tent’ event,” says Jim Daggett, executive director of ITA. “We are focused on creating opportunities for insurance executives to have one-on-one conversations with peers, think more innovatively through exposure to new solutions for existing problems, hear from vendors or service providers doing things differently, and leverage new networks to recruit amazing talent. I’m looking forward to the energy and content our friends from InsNerds will bring to the table this year.”

“ITA and InsNerds sit at the intersection of insurance and technology, and this partnership makes a lot of sense for both organizations,” Carly Burnham says. “We believe the ITA’s members, readers of ITA Pro, and attendees of ITA LIVE will benefit from the content we provide and from the interactions with members of the InsNerds network who participate this year. ”

ITA LIVE 2020 will focus on the practicalities of preparing your business for adopting and implementing the latest insurtech advances. With more than 20 interactive presentations, panel discussions, and roundtables, a wide range of insurtech topics will be examined, including:

  • Getting your house in order to start really leveraging insurtech;
  • Navigating the regulatory and privacy requirements that can hinder data use;
  • Insurtech in the field: Real-life use cases of how carriers are using tech tools to galvanize their businesses;
  • Startups vs. Carriers: Conversations between insurtechs and carriers; and
  • Creating an exemplary customer experience.

This year’s ITA LIVE will also feature energetic keynote presentations delivered by high-profile insurtech influencers Dr. Robin Kiera of Digitalscouting, Rusty Sproat of FIGO Pet Insurance, and Tim Attia of Slice.
