Otto Thoresen, Director General at the Association of British Insurers, said:

"For anyone involved in the insurance industry, this really is a ‘must attend’ conference, given the quality of the speaker line-up and the broad range of subjects under discussion.

"The UK insurance market is changing rapidly and is being shaped by a number of factors.  There will be challenges and opportunities for insurers.  We will use the conference to kick start the debate about how best the Government’s insurance strategy can help our industry continue to benefit UK consumers and play an important part in the success of our economy.

"We want as many people as possible to join the debate and there is no substitute for being there on the day to be part of what promises to be an exciting and thought provoking conference.”
