The 2013 Primerica Convention kicks off today in a big way! Registration for the convention was officially launched today on a special PFN-TV live broadcast and all Primerica representatives are invited to register for this huge event that will take place June 13-15.

Primerica’s Convention takes place every two years and this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever. This year’s convention is particularly exciting because Primerica will be moved into their new international headquarters at #1 Primerica Parkway in Duluth, Georgia. Representatives attending the convention will have an opportunity to tour the brand new headquarters for the first time.

The Primerica Convention lasts for three days and is expected to draw 40,000 or more Primerica representatives from across North America to downtown Atlanta. Meetings and events take place in the Georgia Dome and Georgia World Congress Center and it is estimated that the event will have a multi-million dollar economic impact on the Atlanta area.
