BIBA goes virtual for 2021

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association has announced its 2020 conference will be digital and based on the theme of strengthening resilience.

Lindsay Campbell, conference director at BIBA, said: “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.”

The event will take place on the 12th and 13th of May.

Steve White, CEO of BIBA, added: “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.”
