Cetera’s Connect18 conference, a premier conference for financial professionals was awarded a 2019 Bronze Stevie® Award for the live event conferences category at the 17th Annual American Business Awards®. The winners were presented their awards on June 11 at a banquet in New York.
“Connect18 was a special milestone because it was the first-ever national conference comprised of Cetera’s entire network of advisors, strategic partners and home office leadership, said Michael Zuna, Chief Marketing Officer of Cetera. “Themed for advisors, by advisors, we’re thrilled for this recognition and want to credit the Connect advisory board comprised of financial advisors who worked alongside Cetera to create a truly unique experience for attendees.”
Unique live elements included financial advisor Q&A with featured keynote speakers, a theatre-in-the-round stage, live music, interactive entertainment and an unprecedented opportunity to rally its network around a single big idea: the Advice-Centric Experience®. Tools and technology were launched to aid in enhancing the delivery of financial advice for advisors and their clients.
Connect19, themed “A Mile Above”, will once again bring together Cetera advisors in a three-day networking, information and experiential event in Denver, July 22-25.
