BIBA to focus on insurtech in 2018

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) wants to explore the world of insurance innovation at its 2018 Conference & Exhibition.

BIBA titled the 2018 event taking place in Manchester Central on May 16 & 17 'Innovate Evolve Thrive’. The association wants to explore the world of insurance innovation as insurtech establishes itself as the most eagerly anticipated opportunity in insurance product development and delivery for many years.

“Taking a broader perspective on change, we see tech-driven solutions as ‘enablers’, allowing both brokers and customers to take advantage of faster delivery models and greater consumer freedom from a more personalised approach to insurance cover,” said Steve White, BIBA’s CEO.

Lindsay Campbell, BIBA’s conference organiser, added: “As always we are looking at ways in which the conference programme can reflect the theme, so expect to see sessions on innovation and creativity. And once again we will be developing a full conference programme for young brokers. Young Broker Day has become an established part of the conference mix and is open to all BIBA member brokers aged 30 or younger.”
