Telematics Update: The addition of Progressive to the keynote speaker line-up at Insurance Telematics USA 2013 Conference & Exhibition (4-5 September, Chicago, IL) has caused a spike in demand for tickets for the conference as the telematics community gathers to hear from industry leaders at this crucial time in the industry’s development.

Over the past 13 years, Telematics Update has built an in-depth knowledge on all things telematics, focusing on how these technologies can be utilised by the insurance space. The insurance sector has been a key focus for the last four years which has firmly positioned the Insurance Telematics USA 2013 event as the most comprehensive and well attended insurance telematics event in North America ( This strong focus on telematics in the insurance space right now is reflected in the high number of insurers that have already signed up to attend the conference in large groups. For the first time ever, Progressive will be making the key note presentation to discuss Snapshot, IP and the future of IP resulting in a huge surge of bookings and a limited number of tickets remaining.

Conference organizer, Justin Parker from Telematics Update, said: ‘We are delighted to have Progressive giving a keynote presentation on day one of the conference. They join a line-up of some of the top insurers and solution providers in the telematics industry including Allstate, Towers Watson and LexisNexis. We will be covering the A-Z of insurance telematics in a packed 2-day agenda, ranging from topics on how to integrate telematics data into auto-insurance underwriting, right through to how to differentiate a usage based insurance program from competitors using value-added services.’ He continued: ‘Outside of the keynote presentations we have a large proportion of time dedicated to networking and business development where delegates will meet representatives of all parts of the value chain. This is a unique opportunity to make connections and get industry insights from UBI experts all under one roof.’
