Airmic full steam ahead with October conference

Published on Thu, 12/08/2021 - 08:08

Airmic members and partners are invited to the UK’s first major risk and insurance event in 18 months, with the Airmic Conference returning, in person, on 5th and 6th October at the Brighton Centre.

The two-day event, themed Driving Transformation – Shaping the Future, is free to attend for Airmic members and will feature an exhibition hall, a comprehensive educational and thought leadership programme and networking opportunities.

The health, safety and security of all who attend the Airmic Conference 2021 is the top priority. The Conference has been planned and assessed in line with UK government guidance for COVID-19 for “Events and attractions” in England. This guidance may be subject to change from time to time and Airmic will continue to encompass these changes in arrangements as necessary.

“While Airmic, our members and partners have been impressively agile in adapting to a new way of working since March 2020, there has been a strong demand to gather as a community, in person, in a way that is safe and feels comfortable,” Julia Graham, Airmic CEO, said.

“The harsh insurance market, the pandemic and associated economic downturn have presented many new and daunting challenges for our profession and I am believe, in collaboration with our partners, we have built a conference programme that will confront these turbulent times head on.”

The keynote speaker on Wednesday 6th will be Anne-Marie Imafidon, a respected thought leader on technology and the future of work and one of the youngest people to get a master’s degree in mathematics and computing science from the University of Oxford. Anne-Marie’s speech will focus on the conference theme of Driving Transformation - Shaping the Future.

There will be seminar panels throughout both days, addressing the biggest issues and topics of the coming years including ESG, the future of the insurance market, transformation, the rise of captive insurance and corporate purpose. Delegates can view the full programme of seminars here.

The popular HUB sessions, 30 minute bitesize Ted Talk-style presentation, are also making a return and are split into six themes – Claims, Emerging Risks, Pandemic, Sustainability, The Changing Profession, and Underwriting.
