The US re/insurance industry gathered at the Sheraton Hotel in Denver in early November for the first in-person APCIA annual conference since 2019. Here are the key takeaways from this year’s event.
As the 2021 conference season has rolled around, it has been an encouraging sight to witness the re/insurance industry meeting face to face once more after such a long absence.
Videoconferences are undoubtedly useful and will clearly remain a fundamental part of the market in years to come, but as the American Property and Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA) gathered for its annual event in Denver at the beginning of November, few in the room would have preferred the virtual alternative.
With travel restrictions to the US from the COVID-19 pandemic still in place, overall attendance was down from the last time the event met in person, in 2019, but the return to face-to-face meetings and discussions could not have come at a better time.
