What is The Better Agency Conference About?

The Better Agency Conference is where the top independent insurance agents go to improve their skills, gain new knowledge and forge lasting relationships that will change their life.

Who's This Event For?

Independent insurance agents and their teams want to learn from other successful agents and professionals.

If you are a growth-focused agent who is not satisfied with stagnation and you want to improve your skills and make better connections, then the BA conference is for you.

We are capping our attendance at 250 independent agency agents. It is not a requirement to be a Better Agency user. Our conference is open to any independent insurance professional.

Cool Attractions Nearby

Let’s not fool ourselves here, a big reason (if not the only reason) you come to events is so that you can spend time with awesome people. We understand that and want you to spend as much time with others as possible.

Here are some local recommendations (picked out by our resident food snob Nicholas Ayers)  for food, entertainment, and coffee that you can use as meeting spots with other attendees.

Downtown Gilbert - 15 minutes away

Downtown Gilbert is the best place for dinner resturants. It has an eclectic style of food choices. For large, casual dinners, we suggest "Culinary Dropout" which has a indoor/outdoor bar. "Wiskey Row" is great for groups as well. It is a "honky-tonk" resturant. The food is mediocre, but the entertainment with a live band is great. Other options include "Pomo" (Italian) or "Da'Bayou Creole Kitchen" (Nick's favorite). There is a decent coffee house "Bergies" as well which has an awesome outdoor space for medium size coffee groups. As always, we suggest making reservations for any group.

Mythical Coffee - 12-15 minutes away

There is a Starbucks on every corner, but if you want good local coffee, then Mythical is the best option nearby. The seating is decent (not great) but the coffee is really good and this is a great spot for coffee meetings and free wifi.

SanTan Village - 10-12 minutes away

San Tan Village is an outdoor shopping and dining area. It has some great places to eat. If you want steak, then go to "The Keg Steakhouse and Brewery" or "Bourbon & Bones". If you want sushi, then visit "Blue Wasabi Sushi and Martini's". One of Nick's favs is "Dog Haus" that does high-level hotdogs, brats, and beer...if you're into that sort of thing. There is also "State 48 Brewery". We suggest calling ahead and making reservations wherever you choose.

FAQs We Tend To Get Asked A Lot

No. The event won't be streamed or recorded. You have to be there in person to soak up the good stuff.

Yes. Additional tickets are an extra $49 each

You should make plans to fly into Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. The drive is about 30 minutes away from the event venue.

Before we mention nearby hotels, here's a unique idea. Offer to pay for or split an AirBnB in the Gilbert/Chandler area. This way you can get a ton of time with attendees.

If that's not your thing and you want to max out your travel points, then a few close hotels are:

  1. Holiday Inn Phoenix - Chandler, an IHG Hotel - 11-minute drive
  2. Hilton Garden Inn Chandler Downtown - 9-minute drive

  3. Marriott Phoenix Chandler - 11-minute drive

We will be serving a catered lunch each day. Breakfast will not be included and we encourage you to use the breakfast time to connect with attendees or exhibitors.

Yes. The dress code is "dont be naked". Other than that, you can wear anything from a tuxedo to your sleeveless Def Leppard shirt.

There isn't one.
