The British Insurance Broker’s Association (BIBA) has taken on board the wide desire for the insurance world to come together in person, and announced that Our Insurance Community, is the theme of its 2022 conference.
The theme brings together some key elements of the sector we operate in; its largely personal nature and its way of acting in unity for the good of its employees and its customers. Emphasising this, the visual identity includes the faces of many insurance personalities brought together for The BIBA Conference 2022.
The 44th BIBA conference in May 2022 will reconnect the insurance community at the Manchester Central Convention Complex at what will be the year’s must attend insurance event.
Emma Chapman, BIBA Head of Conference said: “What strikes me each year at The BIBA Conference, are the smiles, laughs, and warm greetings that fill the venue. I believe this is what gives The BIBA Conference its unique spirit. The coming together of our members, brokers, insurers, and providers is what drives us to create the best event we can.”
As usual, the event is designed around the networking needs of the Insurance Community. Once again it will be the place where business gets done, relationships are nurtured and strengthened with access to many exhibitors including insurers, service providers, brokers and software houses. Delegates will also be informed by knowledgeable and inspiring speakers in plenary, fringe and seminar sessions.
Steve White, BIBA CEO said: “We have all faced immense challenges over the last 21 months. The pandemic was unprecedented and resulted in a sea-change in the way we work and live. We faced the challenges together as a community. Collaboration enabled us to continue to meet the needs of people and businesses and technology enabled us to continue to mentor and develop our teams. However, the desire to discuss a deal face to face has never been stronger and I’m looking forward to seeing people ‘in the flesh’!”
The BIBA Conference 2022 – Our Insurance Community opens at 8.30am on 11 May at Manchester Central and runs until the afternoon of 12 May.
Shaun Hinds, CEO at Manchester Central said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming The BIBA Conference back to Manchester in 2022. In recent months, we’ve seen first-hand just how eager clients and delegates are to get back to live events; people have missed the opportunity to connect face-to-face and, now more than ever, recognise the benefits of being ‘back in the room’. The BIBA Conference has traditionally been a real highlight in our venue calendar, and we can’t wait to help bring next year’s event to life.”
