Inaugural Foremost eConference a Success

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., July 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foremost Insurance
Group has released the results of the first ever Foremost® eConference, a
digital convention presented entirely online to independent insurance
producers. The recently held three day event, gave producers unprecedented
access to Foremost resources and staff from throughout the company including

During the Foremost eConference thousands of visitors accessed virtual booths,
chatted live with Foremost staff, completed education courses and downloaded
brochures. The event also featured video presentations from Foremost
executives that were viewed over 3,000 times.

"We are very happy with the results from the Foremost eConference but more
importantly our producers were excited about having a new, convenient way to
interact with us," says Bob Sadler, Head of Foremost Independent Agency
Operations. "I've heard from a number of producers who enjoyed the opportunity
to learn more about Foremost and chat with members of our underwriting and
marketing teams — all from the comfort of their own office."

Foremost has become a leader in using new technology and utilizing it to
enhance independent producers experience with both the company and their own
customers. The Foremost eConference was a unique user experience that combined
Foremost's commitment to technology with their over 60 years of experience in
the industry.

The Foremost eConference showcased the resources Foremost offers to help
agencies succeed, including online education courses, marketing tools and the
Foremost Social Media Suitcase, a one-stop website where producers can get
helpful tips, suggestions and content for marketing their agency online.

"We're always looking for new ways to enrich our relationship with independent
producers," added Sadler. "From our market leading suite of commercial and
personal specialty lines products, to events such as the Foremost eConference,
when we say Foremost means more – we mean it."
