Its.cola to Attend World's Largest Insurtech Gathering in Las Vegas
"This event is ideal for showcasing Columbia as a great city to start a business. It is the top annual event attended by insurtech startup companies from all over the world," stated Kay Hampton, Deputy Director of CED. "We had planned on beefing up our presence this year so we could present the benefits of basing a business in Columbia through a formal exhibit, but with the uncertainty of holding in-person events during COVID, we made the decision to look to 2022 to invest in the larger presence." The conference is being held October 4-6 at the Mandalay Bay Conference Center in Las Vegas. Attendees must affirm they are fully vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 virus before gaining entry and masks are required for all indoor activities and events.
While Its.cola will not exhibit this year, representatives of the association have begun scheduling meetings with entrepreneurs who may be looking for a home base for their new businesses. "I expect to be on my feet for three straight days, meeting with multiple entrepreneurs and engaging in the superlative networking that is a hallmark of an ITC event," says Ryan Coleman, CED Director. "Columbia is a top city for starting a new business and a top insurtech hub. We have a higher concentration of insurance and insurtech companies represented by our highly talented workforce than anywhere in the US. InsureTech Connect is the perfect forum for us to recruit new business."
