Health, Care and Protection Conference 2016
Pushing the Boundaries of Insurance Innovation

18-20 May 2016, The Rum Warehouse and Titanic Hotel, Liverpool

The Protection, Health and Care Conference (formally the Health and Care Conference) is an annual conference aimed at all insurance professionals with a passion for harnessing insurance risk in their organisations. The conference uses a combination of workshops by individuals who work at the coalface and ‘big name’ experts to explore how changes in innovation, technology, medical advances (including genetics), the political landscape and other market movements will impact the future of insurance risk management in the Protection, Health and Care markets. In 2015 our plenary speakers included Lord Professor Robert Winston, Dr Ros Altmann and Paul Corrigan.

Due to its size and scope, the conference has a stronger focus on areas that drive the development of our key products, so covering product design, pricing, underwriting/claims and distribution.

The conference offers considerable opportunity to improve technical understanding, with more general business sessions, and the size and scope offers many opportunities to network and discuss the range of topics covered.

Following a successful Health and Care Conference 2015, we are now working on the programme for next year and we are looking for a wide variety of topical workshop sessions. This is your chance to help shape the programme!  If you would like to speak at next year’s conference, we want to hear from you.

Submit your session here.
Submission deadline: Thursday 12 November 2015
