The health, safety and security of all who attend the Airmic Conference 2021 is our top priority. The Conference has been planned and assessed in line with UK government guidance for COVID-19 for “Events and attractions” in England. This guidance may be subject to change from time to time and we will continue to encompass these changes in our arrangements as necessary.

Driving Transformation I Shaping the Future

Our world has changed and we have changed. New business models are everywhere, technology has swept away traditional work boundaries. Skills are in hyper-demand, and values such as purpose, equality, and inclusion have risen on the management agenda. In our digital world, we want fast, intuitive and streamlined digital experiences to enable us to live safer and healthier lives.

It’s all about risk.

Over the past year, the business landscape has become more precarious with protracted uncertainty and confusion in pandemic response approaches, the challenges of vaccine rollouts and emerging virus variants – and spillover effects into other risks.

While many businesses have innovated and adapted to rapidly-changing circumstances – seizing market share in the process – not all have. Nor will all benefit from the expected economic recovery.

Businesses must be ready for a disorderly shakeout during a volatile recovery period. And they will need to strengthen and constantly review their risk mitigation strategies to improve their resilience to future shocks.

Risk drives insurance

These same expectations are affecting the insurance industry value chain.

Technology opens up new opportunities to close existing and potential protection gaps, which may widen due to lack of relevance, affordability and trust in an increasingly complex and fast moving context.

Data powered by Artificial Intelligence, used by data savvy professionals and the increasing digitisation of insurance will play a role in seizing opportunities and providing new digital insurance solutions.

Partnership and collaboration fuel innovation

There is growing recognition that digital transformation and adoption can make all the difference between the future and failure of an organisation. Confidence is increasing and organisations are thinking about risks beyond the pandemic: cyber security, regulatory, tax and supply chain risk and environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are all top of mind.

Organisations are accelerating new digital business models and revenue streams and seamless digital customer experiences. However, there is a widening gap between the demand for innovation and the available talent to meet that demand.

Welcome to Brighton which promises to provide a wonderful opportunity to network, engage and collaborate as we emerge into the reality of the new post-pandemic world.
