Dunning explained why Insurtech on the Silicon Prairie is held in Omaha. "Nebraska has been an incredible center for the insurance industry as a whole. If we are talking about insurtech, which is the merger between insurance and technology, what better place to do it than in Omaha...a historic center for the insurance business."
In 2023, Dunning sees to agenda for the Insurtech on the Silicon Prairie attracting a wide range of insurance and technology professionals, some truly tech-focused folks and insurtech company management. Most importantly, Dunning days, “we bring some folks to the table who have experience in the regulatory space…year after year the insurance regulator panel of discussion is a bit of a highlight at the event.”
Dunning is gratified by the response received following Insurtech on the Silicon Prairie. "It's been wonderful… I hear from many who attend how glad that they made the effort to get on a plane and come out to Omaha."
