Due to the current challenging global conditions, the highly anticipated IUMI annual conference is going online for the very first time. Whilst we are deeply saddened not to be meeting face to face in Sweden this year, the Stockholm organisers are working hard to bring the event to you in this new digital format.
As ever, we are committed to continuing the excellent programme of learning, discussion and debate that the IUMI conference has delivered across the globe for so many years. The common theme this year is “Navigating changing climates – delivering expertise to shape the future” and it is very fitting given the current unprecedented times we are facing. COVID-19 and its consequences for our business will be on the agenda as well as discussions on the impact of sustainability and digitalization on marine insurance. Many other topical issues will complement this core debate.
To allow for maximum participation, the 2020 event will be held over the two-week period 14-25 September, with one workshop held each day over a 90-120-minute session. Each of the ten sessions will run twice a day to ensure all time zones are able to participate. Sessions will comprise a mix of presentations, discussion and online Q&A. The fee to attend is significantly reduced at €500 net. This includes access to all ten workshop sessions.
In addition, the conference website www.iumi2020.com and conference app will be available allowing you to plan your attendance, view background information and interact with the speakers, panellists and each other.
Another first for the IUMI annual conference is that this year we have decided to use the opportunity and to open the event to the whole industry and we are welcoming brokers, lawyers, surveyors and other stakeholders involved in the maritime business. Every non-IUMI-member is invited to join for a fee of €600 net.
We do look forward to seeing you in September and becoming part of IUMI history in the first ever online IUMI annual conference.
