About the conference

Insurtech is a hot topic.

Every insurance research paper published tells us that change, innovation and sometimes even the survival of our businesses depend on technology.

We all know the industry needs it, but are we perfectly primed for this disruption? In an industry serving millions of customers with numerous policies, technology plays an essential role in managing the comprehensive insurance process, enabling customers to effectively transfer their risks when necessary.

The benefits are clear, but the insurance sector is nuanced.

It’s time to consider what’s out there, the immense benefits insurance technology can offer, and the unique challenges that improved efficiencies can present in other parts of the pipeline.

Leaning into new technology is key for insurance companies seeking to distinguish themselves in a changing sector in terms of service, pricing, offerings and reputation in a digital landscape.

The event will be held in Sydney, at Dockside, Cockle Bay Wharf on Darling Harbour

Participation is eligible for 5.5 NIBA CPD points and 6 ANZIIF CIP points
