INDIANAPOLIS -

Georgia-based Primerica Inc. (NYSE: PRI) has announced it will bring its 2017 convention to the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium. The event expects to bring more than 50,000 visitors to the city and Visit Indy says it will bring more than $34 million in economic impact.

Glenn Williams, chief executive officer of Primerica, says the company is excited for Indy to host the event, which will take place June 14-17, 2017. In a statement, Williams said "the city has everything that we look for in a meeting venue: a beautiful, accessible downtown with a wide assortment of hotels and restaurants; a central location with an exceptional airport; and world class meeting facilities."

Pimerica distributes financial products to middle-income households throughout North America. Williams said the convention celebrates the sales force's accomplishments and sets the course for the company's future.

"The event will bring together tens of thousands of our teammates in the Lucas Oil Stadium where they will learn from dynamic leaders as well as attend workshops and seminars to enhance their skills," said Williams. "Attendees will be energized and leave the event focused on providing outstanding service to the millions of Main Street families that we’re privileged to serve every day. Our 2017 Convention should provide an added boost to our business as we work to maximize the many opportunities that lie ahead for Primerica, our clients, and our field leaders."

The Primerica convention is held every two years, with the last two conventions taking place at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

    • Benefits Of The 'Somewhere Between 4-40 Hour' Work Week

      Burnout. Retirement. Altered work schedules--so many conversations about this of late. Tim Ferriss of course has his 4-hour work week. If you haven't read the book, (I'd be shocked if you haven't by now), it's worth a quick read. However, as much as it's lovely to consider, I don't really think a 4-hour work week is feasible for most of us--unless we are an ex-POTUS, Brad Pitt or Tim Ferriss. On the other end of the spectrum, we have the 40-hour (or more) work week.
