PHOENIX, Ariz. (June 3, 2022) — Vālenz® announced today it is the Title Sponsor of the 42nd annual Self-Insurance Institute of America (SIIA) National Conference & Expo this fall – an event that will be even more special because the conference will be held in the Valenz hometown of Phoenix and is fully in-person for the first time in three years.
Scheduled for Oct. 9-11 at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa, the SIIA National Conference & Expo is the world’s largest self-insurance event, offering educational programs, meaningful insights and game-changing solutions on the latest industry topics.
“Our sponsorship of the SIIA National Conference this year will bring Valenz full circle,” said Rob Gelb, Chief Executive Officer of Valenz. “We launched the Valenz ecosystem at the national conference in October 2019, which was the last time it was held in person before the pandemic. Three years later, we are celebrating being together again and unveiling the fully integrated Healthcare Ecosystem Optimization Platform. It is a tremendous honor to now say thank you to the SIIA community through the Title Sponsorship in our hometown. We can’t wait for October.”
Valenz has been a Diamond Member of SIIA since 2020, which signifies the highest level of support for SIIA’s mission and demonstrates a leadership position in serving the needs of the self-insurance community.
“We were very excited to announce Valenz as the Title Sponsor for this year’s conference,” said SIIA President & CEO Mike Ferguson. “Not only have they been a great supporter of the organization, but they also are an industry innovator in healthcare cost containment solutions for so many of our members involved with self-insured health plans and captives. With Valenz’s support, we expect Phoenix to be a wonderful host city for our biggest event of the year.”
Gelb will facilitate an “Engagement Accelerator” session at the conference called “Selling in the Self-Insurance Market,” which will address the acceleration of change, the challenges of staffing and other industry developments that may shift the mind of the buyer in the self-insurance value chain. Participants will share their experiences and strategies on how to work most effectively to support the self-insurance industry buyers while achieving corporate growth objectives.
