PARK RIDGE, Ill. (June 20, 2019) — During the MDRT Annual Meeting last week, the association highlighted and announced its latest expansion of in-person and digital offerings that bring the renowned innovative ideas and opportunities for limitless growth to its global membership base in more accessible formats.
“Over the last four years we have seen exponential member growth, which has inspired us to dig deeper and ask how we can better tailor our resources to match our evolving members’ needs,” said MDRT President Ross Vanderwolf, CFP. “We’ve delivered on that commitment through new in-person events like MDRT EDGE and more digital content than ever before.”
MDRT’s quintessential offering – its North America-based Annual Meeting – drew 9,800 members eager to learn from industry speakers, business coaches and fellow MDRT member experts. During 200+ sessions they gathered innovative approaches to client planning, better practice management, staying ahead of industry changes, finding an optimal work-life balance and more.
This year, members have endless possibilities to connect with peers, grow in their profession and give back to the global and local communities through the second-annual MDRT EDGE, the first-ever MDRT Global Conference, multimedia Resource Zone in 11 languages and the newly launched MDRT App with content added daily.
Ninety-six percent of those who attended the 2018 MDRT EDGE plan to attend again this year, and 96% want to bring a colleague along with them. Leveraging the success of the inaugural event, the 2019 MDRT EDGE will deliver similar individualized learning experiences that emphasize peer-to-peer networking to its U.S. and Canadian members.

Inaugural MDRT Global Conference
MDRT will also bring the Annual Meeting’s renowned event experience closer to home for many members with its inaugural MDRT Global Conference, September 1-4, 2019 in Sydney. More than 8,000 members will get to experience MDRT’s quintessential offering with more than 100 sessions in seven languages.
More Content than Ever Before
More than a meeting, members have access to these innovative ideas anytime through MDRT’s digital offerings through the Resource Zone with over 5,500 multimedia resources in 11 languages and 2,200 pieces of content added annually. This content, much of which is sourced from MDRT conferences, includes tools and expertise members need to continually learn and evolve, and is also available via the newly launched MDRT App.
MDRT builds its meeting offerings based on its members needs and are currently seeking speaker nominations for next year – members can submit themselves or other speakers via the 2020 Call for Speakers Forum now through June 30, 2019.
