Commenting on the event, one previous attendee stated, "Bolt's Going Direct event was a day well spent and I would encourage any insurance professional interested in learning more to attend. We all know that consumers have the power to choose, not just who they do business with, but also how that business is conducted. Going direct is quickly becoming the preferred method for insurance buyers, and as insurance professionals we need to be proactive in staying ahead of the curve. Attending a Bolt Going Direct event is one good way to do just that."

Bolt's Tim Attia also commented, saying, "Just a few years ago, insurers considered going direct as little more than offering a consumer portal. Today going direct means so much more, making our events both timely and thought provoking. We were extremely pleased with the success of our first meeting in New York and look forward to applying the lessons learned to make Chicago even better. Invitations have gone out and space is limited. We encourage anyone who might be interested in attending to contact us directly at any time or click on the above link above to register."
