Northwestern Mutual draws 10,000 to city for annual meeting

Milwaukee-based Northwestern Mutual will hold its annual meeting of network representatives this week in Milwaukee. More than 10,000 people from across the country will occupy approximately 12,675 hotel rooms and have an estimated economic impact of $8 million on the city.
"We are thrilled to welcome Northwestern Mutual back to Milwaukee for the 131st time,” said Paul Upchurch, president and CEO of VISIT Milwaukee.  “Northwestern Mutual represents the largest convention of our year and has a tremendous impact on our area’s economy. We look forward to welcoming the more than 10,000 Northwestern Mutual attendees to Milwaukee and creating great experiences for them while they’re here."
Northwestern Mutual was named the World’s Most Admired Life Insurance Company in 2011 by FORTUNE magazine, announced a $4.9 billion dividend payout to participating policy owners and maintained the best-possible insurance financial strength ratings from all four major ratings agencies including Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s, Fitch and A.M. Best.
"Few, if any, companies came through economic crisis as strong as Northwestern Mutual,” said Northwestern Mutual chairman and chief executive officer John Schlifske. “We’ve built a reputation as a financial security company for all seasons, delivering exceptional value in all financial products over the long term.”
Northwestern Mutual will be conducting events and seminars for its financial representatives at the Frontier Airlines Center, the Bradley Center, the Hilton Milwaukee City Center, the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee, the InterContinental Hotel & Resort and the Pfister Hotel. In addition, the company is sponsoring activities for the financial representatives’ families at the Milwaukee Art Museum, Discovery World, the Milwaukee Public Museum, the Paradise Landing Indoor Water Park in the Hilton Milwaukee City Center, the Milwaukee County Zoo and the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum.
