"Throughout the past year, our message to our travel agency partners is that
'travel comes first,'" said Dean Sivley, CEO of Travel Guard. "We've focused
on ways to help our partners strategically grow their travel business, while
also providing them with the enhanced tools they need to successfully convert
more travel insurance sales opportunities.

"We're excited and honored to be selected to present our technology solutions

from two core technologies, our proprietary EMS and our patent-pending Factor
Based Pricing (FBP) system. Our own proprietary system leverages our domain
expertise and an SMTP gateway to facilitate very targeted, communication via
automation for our channel partners. We believe it is truly one-of-a-kind and
we're excited to demonstrate it in this arena."
