Risk summit sold out
The inaugural in-person Bermuda Risk Summit has sold out, the Bermuda Business Development Agency has confirmed.
The event, to be held from today through Wednesday, is the first major, in-person risk event to be held in Bermuda since 2019 and counts CEOs from some of the world’s largest global professional services firms and property and casualty re/insurers among its attendees.
David Hart, BDA CEO, said: “The BDA is thrilled with the level of industry and government support we have received for our first Bermuda Risk Summit.
“After over two years of meeting virtually, there has been a very strong level of interest from the global risk industry to get back to Bermuda to meet face to face again.
“We have attracted a great deal of overseas business visitors from the US and UK, who will all be staying in local hotels, eating in local restaurants, and taking taxis to and from local amenities.
“As we take what we hope will be our first steps out of this global pandemic, the BDA is pleased to be able to support Bermuda’s economy in this important way at this historic time.”
The BDA thanked its diamond sponsors, the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers, Aon and EY, gold sponsor Appleby, and silver sponsors Ariel Re, Kirkland & Ellis, KPMG, and SiriusPoint.
Bermuda Brokers, Florida Insurance Council, Kettle, Meenan P.A. and Goslings are also event sponsors. The summit’s media partner is The Insurer.
The summit, being held at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, will include morning panels, and keynote breakfast and lunch presentations, leaving afternoons free for attendees to enjoy excursions, meetings, or networking.
