Insurance symposium set in Des Moines next year

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa officials say a new insurance symposium set for next year is aimed at bringing top industry experts to Des Moines.

Iowa Insurance Commissioner Nick Gerhart tells The Des Moines Register ( ) that the two-day Global Insurance Symposium will attract industry experts and regulatory authorities from around the world.

Gerhart says the symposium is a unique opportunity to discuss issues facing the insurance industry.

Jay Byers, CEO of the Greater Des Moines Partnership, says such an event is perfect for Des Moines because the city has a reputation for being an insurance industry hub. The newspaper reports insurance companies in the state employ more than 41,000 people.

The symposium will be held at the Des Moines Marriott Hotel in May.
