Airmic plans its return to physical events

Airmic is preparing for the return in Autumn of its popular annual conference and exhibition – in a move which has necessitated changing the venue from Manchester to Brighton.

The association’s headline event will – COVID permitting – see the return of face-to-face networking and meetings.

The theme of the event, 'Driving Transformation - Shaping the Future', focuses on meeting the challenges faced in mitigating risks with confidence, and realising opportunities as risk professionals work actively to shape their organisation’s place in a sustainable future.

CEO John Ludlow commented: “As risk professionals we can spot a need or demand, understand what’s driving a threat or causing a vulnerability, and develop our own ideas about what might form a solution, speak to people about it, and gain support for changing what was otherwise inevitable. That’s what leaders do.

“The next big challenge is the environment. Now we understand that for sustainable development we need to protect the environment to sustainably grow the economy. It’s another example of shaping our environment, quite literally.”

Julia Graham, deputy CEO and technical director, added: “Airmic provides a platform for risk and insurance professionals to stay in touch, to communicate with each other and share knowledge, ideas, and information in collaboration with our partners. We look forward the time when we can blend our success in achieving this virtually by meeting up together in Brighton.”

Airmic’s Annual Conference will take place from 4th to 6th October 2021.
