2022 ‘Big “I” ’ leadership conference comes to Cataract City
Destination Niagara USA and the Niagara Falls Convention Center will welcome independent insurance agents and brokers for the “Big ‘I’ Fall Leadership Conference” from Sept. 11-19. The conference is expected to draw approximately 400 independent insurance agents and brokers from across the U.S. to Niagara Falls for educational seminars, networking opportunities and meetings at both the convention center and the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino.
A press release noted, “Conference attendees will stay in accommodations in the downtown Niagara Falls area, enjoying meals both there and in Lewiston, and will also have an opportunity to experience the Maid of the Mist during their visit.
“The anticipated economic impact of this conference is close to $1 million.”
“Being able to host face-to-face conferences again is a benefit to attendees who will have a more engaged, immersive experience; and in-person events also provide a critical boost to the local economy,” said John Percy, president and CEO at Destination Niagara USA.
John Costello, incoming chairman of the “Big ‘I,’ ” is from upstate New York. He will be installed at the event.
“John is excited to share this beautiful area with the rest of the association attendees. It will be a great place for our membership to visit, with so much to see and do in the area – especially at this time of year,” said Sue Nester, vice president of communications for the “Big ‘I.’ ”
