Second Annual Industry Summit

NAPHIA held its second annual Industry Summit in Scottsdale Arizona at the FireSky Resort from May 15 – 17, 2013.

It was an intimate gathering, with leading North American pet insurance company CEO’s and senior executives, marketing and research specialists, underwriters and actuaries, plus a host of partnering organizations. Speakers, roundtables and attendees were all focused on growing the industry, increasing consumer awareness about the benefits of coverage, and providing the marketplace with metrics that illustrate and validate the credibility and growth of this burgeoning insurance product.

“This has truly been a banner year for NAPHIA as an organization,” said Laura Bennett, association President. In her opening address she cited a host of industry accomplishments in 2013, including the launch of the organization’s new website and brand, the ongoing benchmarking initiative through Avalon Actuarial, and the acquisition of industry giant Veterinary Pet Insurance as a NAPHIA member. “I’m very proud of what we’ve been able to achieve in 2013.”

At this event, Christine Panet-Raymond of Avalon Actuarial delivered the newly released NAPHIA State of the PHI Industry Benchmarking Report.
