As more than 3,000 attendees can attest, Applied Net is THE forum to learn about the latest insurance technologies and strategies for success in the digital age. If you weren’t able to be a part of the world’s largest gathering of independent insurance agents and brokers this year, all is not lost. Read through for a recap of Applied Net 2016, as experienced and reported by some of this year’s attendees.


Whether catching the flight to Orlando, picking up a conference badge at the registration desk or connecting with other Applied software users, excitement was in the air as attendees descended upon the lovely Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida last week.

Quote-Worthy Keynotes

Tuesday’s opening keynotes set the tone for the week ahead, featuring inspiring presentations by American hero Captain “Sully” Sullenberger and Applied Systems CEO Reid French. On Wednesday, Michael Howe, SVP of Product Management, unveiled the newest features and products of the Applied product portfolio. On Thursday, Kris Hackney, EVP of Customer Experience at Applied Systems, and Holly Hoffman, Disney Institute Facilitator, discussed how to exceed expectations and deliver exceptional customer service.

Time to Learn

This year’s conference included the most user-led education sessions than ever before. With more than 200 sessions and 11 different tracks, there was something for everyone at Applied Net 2016. In between sessions, conference goers continued learning with valuable 1-on-1 support appointments with Applied Customer Support.

Evening Entertainment

After full days of learning and networking, it was time to let loose! From exploring the streets of Universal Studios to enjoying live music at the House of Blues, Applied Net 2016’s evening events showed us all how to have some fun!
