Introducing the double-sided name badges

On June 23, we had our first ever event. We also had an epiphany. Coverager isn’t a media company in insurance. It’s a media company for insurance. And there’s a big difference. And so we do things a bit differently. Let the recap begin.


Thu, Jun 22, 8:57 pm.

It started with an email that was sent out to all of our attendees on Thu, Jun 22, 8:57 pm; the night before the event. The email was really an icebreaker. It listed the brands attending, a latest snippet and what one can ask. For instance:

“Arent Fox. A law firm. But not just a law firm. According to Wiki, Taylor Swift used its services. Ask them about new trends in compliance-as-a-service.”

You can read the full email here. But what you really need to know is that on average the email was opened 5 times. Not surprising because at Coverager we write really good emails.

Last one.

Because when was the last time anyone used the word ‘authentic’ to describe an insurance event? Well, that’s exactly it. This really wasn’t an insurance event. It was an event for insurance professionals. Big difference. & Thank you to all that made it. Visit Coverager’s Facebook page for additional photos.
