The traditional Sunday golf game is almost fully booked –  plus, this year sees the addition of a fun run (or slow walk) on the Sunday for non-golfers who’d like to get out into the fresh air.

In addition, we have attracted a fantastic line-up of sponsors and exhibitors. We would like to specially acknowledge and thank our platinum sponsors, Munich Re, AIG and Marsh. And we’re pleased to welcome back OMI and its subsidiary, Elite Risk Acceptances, as exhibitors this year.
