With just over a week to go until the 2019 African Insurance Exchange at Sun City (#AIE2019), we have seen a massive spurt in registrations. Members of the insurance industry are certainly gearing up for what promises to be the best conference ever.

CN&CO is proud to be the event organiser for this year’s conference.

With so little time to go, we will be closing off bookings on Monday, 8 July 2019 at 12pm. Any changes or new bookings made after this time will go onto a waiting list. That will give us a week to sort out the final touches and double-check that everyone’s conference is a smooth and happy experience.

Night and day

This year’s AIE is set to keep guests busy from the time they wake up until they go to bed at night…


Look forward to some amazing evening functions at this year’s AIE.

Sunday’s “Welcome and Wonder” event, sponsored by AIG and Marsh, will be a chilled affair with drinks and finger food on offer. Be in the exhibition area (Warrior Hall) from 6pm. Wear something smart-casual.

On Monday we celebrate the AIE Awards, gala dinner style, sponsored by Munich Re. Dress code is formal with an optional touch of shweshwe (a traditional South African print fabric – see examples below). The event takes place in the Superbowl from 7pm to 11pm.

There are no table allocations for this year’s gala dinner. Guests are invited to sit anywhere and mingle with as many people as possible. There will be enough seating for everyone.

Tuesday evening’s send-off extravaganza will blow your mind! Be prepared for some incredible entertainment, including South African superband Mi Casa – plus a few other surprises. The bash runs from 7pm to 11pm in the Green House. Wear something smart-casual… and don’t forget your dancing shoes.


Sunday’s golf is fully booked at Gary Player Country Club. Conference registration for golfers starts at Gary Player CC at 7.30am.

We do have a waiting list for the golf. If you’d like your name to be added, fill in the booking form and we’ll let you know in good time if a spot opens up.

Remember there are several other activities, sponsored by Discovery, taking place on Sunday, with Vitality points allocated. To book your spot on the fun run, putting, volleyball or rowing events, follow this link.

Conference registration for non-golfers will run from 12pm to 7pm on Sunday and from 7am to 11am on Monday. The desk will be in the main entrance hall of the Convention Centre.

Monday and Tuesday start at 7am with a morning run (or walk, if you’d prefer) from the main entrance to the Cascades. Ronald Gall, Motseki Majake, Blake Dyason and Carla Jordan will be your hosts on both days.

You can catch all the conference activities on the “AIE conference 2019” app, sponsored by Netstar, which is available in your app store.
