The insurance landscape is changing: Technology is disrupting businesses and consumers alike. Regulatory, workforce, and economic realities are posing new operational questions. And the customer experience is becoming increasingly interactive, personalized, and on-demand.
Welcome to The New Frontier for Saskatchewan insurance brokers. Sure, there is more risk out on the horizon today than ever before, but there is also a wide-open field of opportunity — if you’re ready to think beyond the status quo. That’s what the 2019 IBAS Convention is all about.
It’s time to saddle up.

Who is confirmed?
Chief Executive Officer, Abacus Data
Kick-off convention with a buffet lunch on Thursday while hearing from one of Canada’s foremost experts on the impacts of generational change. David will explore some of the key trends affecting different demographics and consumer segments, and will help tie it back to what it could mean for your brokerage in the years ahead. We’ll make sure to ask him about the November federal election as well!
Canadian Entrepreneur & Dragons’ Den Investor
This year’s featured presenter at the Friday luncheon will be one of Canada’s most sought-after speakers on entrepreneurship, empowerment, corporate social responsibility, and business adaptation. Manjit started out as a 19-year-old with $10,000 and a dream. Today, her brewery is the 10th largest in the world, and she’s seen more than 1,000 pitches in her four seasons as a judge on Dragons’ Den.
Comedian & Host of CBC’s The Debaters
Familiar to hundreds of thousands of Canadians as the host of CBC Radio One’s hit show, The Debaters, Steve’s material combines razor-sharp wit with meticulously crafted, up-to-the-moment social commentary, to keep audiences rolling on the floor. He has twice earned the title Best Male Stand-Up Comedian at the Canadian Comedy Awards, and will be taking to the stage Friday evening as the Chair’s Banquet entertainment.
