"Considering a different landscape"

The world and the MENA region in particular have many challenging and conflicting issues to address and these directly affect and impact insurance. This conference is aimed at addressing some of them as the region seeks to continue to establish itself as a centre of insurance excellence.

This conference is aimed at all parties and stakeholders in the insurance chain including buyers and clients, underwriters, brokers and relevant service providers. The conference looks to provide current and relevant sessions for all these interested parties together with valuable networking opportunities.
