Tick tock….

The official countdown to the marine insurance event of the year has commenced. In just under three months the annual IUMI Conference will come to Africa for the first time in 144 years and will take place in the truly diverse city of Cape Town (16-19 September 2018).

The world’s leading industry experts have been confirmed to present on this year’s common theme “Managing emerging risks and exposures – think the unthinkable” and this year’s conference looks set to be another huge success.

As every year, IUMI’s Facts & Figures Committee are rigorously preparing the highly anticipated 2017 world statistics presentation, which will take place on 17 September. IUMI’s Technical Committees are also busy creating informative and thought-provoking workshops that will look at the current issues marine insurers are facing, as well as to the potential future challenges. The current insurance market environment is volatile and now is the time for marine insurers to think outside the box and “think the unthinkable”. Topics this year include places of refuge, autonomous vessels, cyber risks, fires on containerships, to name a few.

The event will be held in the impressive world-class Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in the heart of the city. For more information and to register please visit the link below. We look forward to seeing you in Cape Town.
