“It is all about finding those pain points in your user experience where insurtech solutions will enable class leading innovation.

With regards to the 2019 conference, Tony has this to say:

“I am confident that we have built exponentially on last year’s event. I am particularly excited about the fact that we are addressing the insurance technology environment comprehensively and holistically.

“I want this to be the biggest yet! Everyone who has to make business decisions in the industry where technology can play a role (which is about 99% of our space) will benefit greatly by attending.”

Come and hear all about the big, wide world of tech from insurers, reinsurers, intermediaries, tech startups and service providers – among others.
