IACON Tradeshow & Sponsors

If your business involves insurance and independent insurance agents then you do not want to miss the largest conference for independent insurance agents in the state of Ohio on October 8th & 9th, 2024.

IACON’s tradeshow will be the centerpiece of our 2-day annual conference for all agents, insurance professionals, OIA staff and exhibitors.

IACON has experienced tremendous growth over the last couple of years with agency owners, professional staff, and Next-Gen agents – and 2024 will only continue to grow.
We bring together national, regional and super-regional carriers and vendors who are looking to network and engage with Ohio’s best independent insurance agents.


Tradeshow Date & Time:
Tuesday October 8th, 2024
New this year: 30 minute breaks on day one with vendors IN THE SAME ROOM as the keynotes!
The tradeshow will kick off at 10:00 AM (set up starts at 8:00am) and attendees can visit the tradeshow throughout the day, with an emphasis from 5:30 to 7:30 PM during the tradeshow and cocktail hour. During this time, you will feel the energy and excitement immediately as we close out day one with a fire keynote and head into the tradeshow feature.
In addition to your tradeshow booths, the room will be set up with various beverages and hors d’oeuvres stations throughout the tradeshow allowing attendees to enjoy snacks, sips, and networking among the vendors and peers.
