The theme of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) conference and exhibition to be held in Manchester Central on 13 and 14 May 2020 is A Year to Pioneer.
The theme was selected to inspire the sector because the UK will be facing what could be seen as a new era.
The changes we are facing, from a new relationship with Europe and the rest of the world; new technologies; new markets; and new sentiments are likely to force businesses to think differently. Finding solutions is what brokers do best and pioneers, by operating differently, is what BIBA intends to help brokers be.
Steve White, BIBA CEO said: “We have been talking about change for some time and 2020 really is the year for us to overcome the new challenges we all face. Technology is an enabler and seizing its potential could help us to address the developing needs of customers.
Understanding that the world expects businesses to not only provide products and services that work, but also to embrace sustainability, wellbeing and different mindsets is essential. A Year to Pioneer builds upon last year’s conference theme of leading the way, highlighting brokers’ ability to overcome issues and clear a path for others to follow.”
Exhibition space at BIBA 2020 is on sale on Tuesday 15 October from 10.00 and we expect lots of activity as potential exhibitors look to secure the best possible spaces in the hall. Interest in the 2020 conference is expected to be high and the programme, when announced, will reflect its pioneering spirit.
