Welcome to Edinburgh – IUMI Conference 2023

This year, we welcome the IUMI family to the stunning capital city of Edinburgh in Scotland. Our conference last came to the UK ten years ago when we hosted in London but this time we’ve chosen this ancient Scottish city with strong maritime links. For centuries, Edinburgh was home to a number of great shipyards responsible for building many iconic vessels which were then insured by our predecessors. Today, it retains its maritime heritage and, being a capital city, has seamless links with the rest of the world as well as first class hotels and conferencing facilities.

Our hosts are the Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA) and the International Underwriting Association (IUA) who, together, have worked tirelessly to create an outstanding event that more than nods in the direction of our chosen Scottish location.

Your IUMI team has settled on “strength and stability in turbulent seas” as this year’s common theme.  Our Technical Committees and Forums have been working hard to bring you the very best series of workshops featuring exceptionally high-quality speakers, panel discussions and Q&A sessions. Speakers will cover highly topical issues such the current situation in Ukraine, transportation of lithium-ion batteries, alternative fuels, unmanned vessels and many others. And, of course, don’t forget our seminal Global Marine Insurance Report.   

The award-winning Edinburgh International Conference Centre will be our home for the event which is uniquely located in the heart of the city and a short walk from many hotels and an array of restaurants and shops. As ever, our networking events will complement the formal conference sessions and this year our opening reception will be hosted at the world-famous Edinburgh Castle whilst the closing dinner will held at the National Museum of Scotland in the old town.

We are extremely excited to invite you to Edinburgh 17-20 September and urge you to visit the conference website for more information.
