Great content drives great conferences

Following breakfast sessions, the focus of the conference moves to the Main Platform, where we will welcome our political and regulatory leaders. 

Delegates can then choose between specialist insurance and investment workstreams throughout the day between the Main Platform sessions, or, new for 2019, can choose to explore some of the Wellbeing sessions and activities planned for the event.

The Gala Awards Dinner will celebrate the achievements of many in the industry and there will be plenty of opportunity for delegates to network, speak to exhibitors and catch-up with colleagues throughout the conference.
