The resilience of BIBA’s Conference and Exhibition

4th November 2020

The theme of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) annual conference 2021 is Strengthening Resilience. This represents the strength and determination of the insurance sector and indeed, the UK and will feature in much of the discussion at BIBA 2021 – Strengthening Resilience.

Lindsay Campbell, BIBA Conference Director said: “We were overwhelmed with the support given to us following the forced cancellation of BIBA 2020 and are determined to come back to give the sector a great event in 2021. After much consideration around the current situation in the UK we have reached the conclusion that it is impossible and unwise for us to hold a physical event next May. However, we have invested in researching the means to bring you an amazing digital conference and exhibition experience at BIBA 2021.”

BIBA 2021 – Strengthening Resilience will be brought to you on 12 and 13 May via a customised  platform providing AI-powered, profile matchmaking to connect delegates with exhibitors easily and with the certainty of shared objectives, to make networking and deal-making easy.

Attendees will be able to schedule appointments, live-chat and video conference within the platform making the experience as close to past BIBA conferences as possible.

BIBA’s conferences are known to bring high quality debate and keynote addresses to its audience and BIBA 2021 – Strengthening Resilience, will be no exception. The full line-up will be announced in the new year.

Steve White, BIBA CEO said: “This has been the most challenging year that our sector and our customers have ever faced. What we have seen is the importance of resilience and how organisations, people and Government will need to ramp it up in the coming months and years. Insurance brokers are solution makers, building resilience in their businesses and helping their customers to weather the storms they face. We intend to examine this, providing inspirational speakers and sessions where you can have your say. BIBA 2021 will help to drive a resilient culture and find a successful road through the challenges and changes brought about by, amongst other things, the pandemic and Brexit.

“We look forward to linking with you there.”

Shaun Hinds, Chief Executive at Manchester Central said: “The BIBA annual conference has been a real highlight of Manchester Central’s calendar for many years. Whilst we understand and respect the decision to shift the 2021 event to a digital conference, we know that all the delegates, exhibitors and visitors truly value the live experience that makes this event so unique. We can’t wait to welcome the Association back to our venue, and our great city, in the years to come.”
