Insurance Edge thought we would have a look at some of the Insurtech events coming up this year around the UK, so you can get busy planning the essential events schedule for your company. Don’t wait for your insurance ship to come in, swim out halfway and meet the opportunity! 😉
Insurtech Insights Europe 2019
Insurtech Insights is a global ecosystem aiming to connect industry leaders and decision makers with innovative Start-ups who are challenging the insurance market, in order to create mutual business opportunities and accelerate growth. The conference takes place on March 19th/20th at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London.
With attendees from established Insurtech companies to C-level Executives from leading Insurance Carriers, Reinsurers, Investors and innovating Start-up businesses. More details at their website here.
The organisers also host global events in London, New York and Hong Kong.
BIBA 2019, Manchester Central, May 15th-16th 2019.
An absolute `must attend’ event for any broker, intermediary, underwriting specialist, or one of the many CEOs/Tech Officers of SMEs looking to connect with brokers.
Last year saw 5000 brokers attend, over 200 stands and a 7000 plus attendance. The Hackathon was arguably the showpiece feature in 2018, and this year is almost certainly likely to see compoanies rounding up their sharpest insurtech minds, ready to do battle when it comes to honing market-changing ideas.
In a word, unmissable. And we aren’t being paid to say that! Details on the BIBA 2019 home pages here.
Insurtech Rising Europe September 10-12th
This event saw a packed schedule in 2018, with speakers from Google Cloud, Uber, Pukka Insurance, Allianz, Zurich, Prudential and many more. There are opportunities for specialist companies to demo their products, with seven minute long oitch slots. Best of all, NO POWERPOINT is allowed on stage, so say goodbye to cheesy jokes and Shutterstock images.

Insurance Innovators Europe, QEII Centre, London Nov 13th-14th
Another big event, with some 600 attendees last year, and around 25 Insurtech companies all pitching. Companies involved last year include Canopy, buzzvault, In My Bag, Laka, Munich Re, Insure The Box, Wrisk and many more.
