Message from the Conference Chair

Thank you for your interest in Workplace Benefits Transitions 2012.

Here is what we have prepared for you December 4th-5th at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.

»» Personal Development: You are going to have the opportunity to spend time with the best and the brightest in our industry. One of the goals of this meeting is to help you reach your full potential and learn how to earn more money by doing a better job of serving your clients.

»» Industry Knowledge: Many of the industry experts will be present to share their knowledge and experience. It is said that a wise man learns from the experience of others so we encourage you to be in the presentation sessions with the other wise people. There is great content and information that will be shared at this meeting.

»» Networking: This event is one of the few places where you can meet the worksite marketing leaders in an environment to gain their perspective and insights in one-on-one conversation. We encourage you to reach out and introduce yourself to these influential people; you will find them friendly and more than willing to talk and share their expertise with you.

»» Products & Services: The cream of the crop industry vendors will be here with products and services to help you. In addition, and very importantly, the exhibition hall offers attendees a highly efficient one-stop opportunity to reach out and touch virtually every type of product and service offered as an employee benefit, and more.

Workplace Benefits Transitions is more than a conference. It is a powerful community where the on-site networking is a starting point for lasting relationships. Attendees return year after year to connect with existing vendors, colleagues and friends. It also provides attendees with a growing library of resources and long-term networking and learning opportunities.

You will leave Chicago with a great deal of new information, products, services and relationships to assist you in making 2012 one of your best years ever. The short time spent at this event can pay big dividends for your entire career if you make the effort.

We hope you will join the network of employee benefit professionals who never miss Workplace Benefits Mania, Workplace Benefits Renaissance, and now, Workplace Benefits Transitions.
