October 2021 - SUMMIT EDITION

Important Summit Info


Early badge and program pick up will take place on Sunday, October 17 from 6-8 p.m. outside on the Northern Sky Terrace. Registration on Monday will open at 8:00 a.m., inside on the lobby level. Program administrators, carriers, and service providers will check in at separate tables. Look for the signs!

NOTE: All attendees will be expected to sign the Safe Summit Document (available on-site) prior to registration.

Where to Meet

1. Red, white, OR blue balloons- To help alleviate congestion under the Target Markets banner, one bunch of red, one bunch of white, and one bunch of blue balloons will be displayed in the registration area. You can indicate which color balloons you would like to meet when corresponding with other attendees. 

2. Carrier Meeting Room (available Monday and Tuesday)- This dedicated space for carrier meetings will be set up inside the Trailblazers Ballroom with limited outdoor seating on the Trailblazer Terrace. Carrier logo signs, developed to assist with table identification, will be available inside the room.  

3. Networking Lounges- While we have created outdoor networking options for attendees, it will not be sufficient to accommodate everyone. Indoor networking spaces will be larger with the increased physical distance allowing for safer indoor meetings. When choosing to meet in the "Networking Lounge" it will be important to indicate whether outside on the Northen Sky Terrace or in the dedicated areas inside.

 Trade Show

Schedule a time to review the products from exhibiting Association service providers. Meetings with service providers are generally scheduled at their trade show table. The show opens at 11:00am on Monday and remains open until the close of the Tuesday evening networking reception. 

General Sessions

Plan to attend the General Sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. We will be providing Association updates and presenting designations before turning the spotlight over to Carla Harris on Tuesday and the Industry panel on Wednesday.

Workshops & Presentations

Save time in your schedule to attend one or all sessions throughout the meeting. View the planned Summit workshops and presentations.

Corporate Photos

A photographer will be available to take headshots near registration on Tuesday, October 19 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. No more than a few minutes away from your meetings will be required. There is no charge for this opportunity, sponsored by Accelerant. A high resolution file will be emailed following the event. 


The TMPAA Networking Receptions (5-6:30 p.m.) provide the opportunity to develop new business partnerships or connect with individuals with whom you currently work. Please schedule any offsite events after 6:30 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday.

Packages from Home

Support our troops by stopping at the table outside the Trade Show. Pack a box for service men and women on active duty around the world. 

Name Badges

We made it easy to locate program administrators (white), carriers (yellow), service providers (blue) and member prospects (red) by color coding the name tags. An agenda is also provided on the back so you don't miss a session.

 COVID-19 Testing

The Association has contracted with an organization, Impact Health, to provide voluntary and free COVID-19 testing at the Westin Kierland to assist members if they choose to use this for registration compliance or for any in-meeting testing that may be necessary. Attendees can expect information next week with instructions on how to register to access testing.

Schedule Your Summit Meetings Today

Target Markets provides two different methods to assist with setting up meetings during the Summit. Attendee lists are emailed to registered participants every other week (last update 9/30) and it is posted on the Summit page, accessible to members once signed in to the site. We also have two simple forms if looking to meet with a Carrier or Service Provider member. These submissions come directly to the TMPAA and will be forwarded on to the appropriate contact to set up a meeting.

Lloyd's Open House

October 19 | 10:30 a.m.

With travel restrictions preventing most London Markets from participating directly in this year’s Open House, we have developed an event that will provide answers for administrators interested in learning more about program opportunities with Lloyd’s.  

Representatives from several syndicates will be in attendance along with program administrators who have had success developing programs in London. The room will be hosted by Rod Smith, Southeast Regional Director and Head of Coverholder Practice and Dawnmarie Black, Northeast Regional Director of Lloyd’s and Head of US Broker Practice, who will also be available to answer questions.

Claims at Lloyd’s

US Head of Claims at Lloyd’s, Carey Bond, will discuss claims handling at Lloyd’s including the current grandfathering/ onboarding process for TPAs, identified at Lloyd’s as DCAs (Delegated Claims Authorities). Carey will also describe impacts of the Lloyd’s Catastrophe Portal and GEO explorer program on the Lloyd’s market using recent events (Hurricane Ida and West Coast wildfires) to demonstrate the usefulness of these two new tools. The role of Head of Claims, Americas is a position brought about by the Future at Lloyd’s. Carey will expand on what that means to the Lloyd’s market in the US.

  Unparalleled Access to the London Markets for TMPAA Members

Since most London Market representatives will be unable to attend the Summit, the Tysers team will be working with members to schedule virtual meetings with these markets.
