Dubai, UAE – This year, Insurex celebrates a decade at the forefront of the GCC insurance marketplace, and to mark the occasion it will showcase the strongest portfolio of speakers, interactive panels, and present a new workshop format. The event will be held on October 2 in Dubai; the final venue has not yet been finalised.
Following on from the success of last year's conference – which focused on the need to explore fresh markets rich with opportunity – Insurex 2013 raises the bar, addressing the business and financial priorities that this market expansion necessitates. It provides a blueprint for insurers on how to build market position and pre-eminence in new sectors, addressing key issues such as: the practicalities of M&A activity; how to make successful portfolio purchases (‘Part 7 transfers'); and the realities of boosting margins in what remains one of the world's most over-subscribed insurance markets.
Insurex 2013 provides a detailed roadmap on how to thrive in a competitive sector and use highly contemporary business strategies to boost value and market share. Furthermore, for the first time, Insurex 2013 underpins its uniquely practical value with a range of afternoon workshops, designed to inspire and inform delegates in sessions led by acknowledged industry champions.
Alexandre Hawari, co-CEO, of Mediaquest, says: “Insurex 2013 follows a completely fresh format, where the morning session comprises the cutting-edge presentations and panel discussions, and an afternoon is filled with a unique, round-table programme – a ‘first- time' open dialogue on key insurance topics. These topics include; reinsurance, takaful, innovation, underwriting and M&A strategies – the most vital factors affecting those working in the industry today.”
Commenting on the upcoming event; Dr. Sven Rohte, Chief Commercial Officer at Daman said: “As it celebrates its 10th anniversary, Insurex has solidified its position as platform for regional insurance leaders to discuss mutual issues and growth opportunities for the future.”
Insurex 2013 is sponsored by Daman as platinum sponsor, with the support of Trends magazine and Saneou Al Hadath magazine as media partners.
