Are you looking for a major award? IdeaStar will be raffling one off at the Inter-Company Marketing Group (ICMG) annual meeting, January 31 through February 2 in Bonita Springs, Florida.

Yep! It is a replica of the famous leg lamp prominently displayed in Ralphie’s living room window during the 1983 movie classic A Christmas Story (filmed in Cleveland, by the way!).

So if you are attending the conference, stop by our booth and register. We might tell you a little about IdeaStar’s 2006 major awards, including the Best of PIMA 2006 and A.M. Best E-Fusion 2006 Finalist for the development of interactive insurance Web sites. And you might win THE major award (quite a conversation piece for the office!).

The ICMG conference provides an opportunity for insurance/financial services executives to network and develop business relationships throughout the insurance industry. Or, you can simply gather ideas for enhancing your business.

I’ll also be attending the 33rd Professional Insurance Marketing Association (PIMA) Annual Meeting January 18 through 21 in Boca Ratan, Florida. The theme this year will be Understanding-Connecting-Influencing: Our Challenge to Critically Assess and Respond in a World of Change.

Sorry, IdeaStar won’t be giving away a “major award” at the PIMA conference. But it will be a great opportunity to discuss online insurance applications and the benefits of Web enabling your insurance processes.

Maybe I’ll see you at one of the conferences. Just remember, “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.”
