About Inside P&C North America Conference 2021

Inside P&C is pleased to announce the dates of the inaugural Insider P&C North America Conference 2021, taking place virtually on Monday, September 27th and Tuesday, September 28th.


Fewer years have seen more twists and turns than the last 18 months for the global re/insurance industry. But now, the industry looks to reconnect and never has the prospect of meeting and engaging in a safe environment seemed so important and exciting to the industry. Now is the time to capitalise on the steady stream of new opportunities and build back stronger. 


With the overarching theme focusing on ‘The evolving (re)insurance landscape post-Covid and Hurricane Ida’, the flagship Inside P&C North America Conference will address the most fundamental key strategic discussions that are taking place within boardrooms across the length and breadth of the US (re)insurance market.


The comprehensive two-day agenda will feature interactive sessions, combining practical insights and experience from industry experts and market practitioners, examining a wide spectrum of key themes and topics including whether the arrival of fresh capital in 2021 has begun to make its mark on pricing, or will rates continue to harden? Has technology finally transformed underwriting processes? And what will broker consolidation mean for your business?  


Key themes and topics to be examined include:


➤   Commercial Lines Insurance - Rates vs. loss trends, who wins this time?

➤   Transforming Personal Lines: How innovation translates to performance

➤   The Reinsurance Market: Overcapitalized or underutilized?

➤   Brokers’ views on the future of the insurance market

➤   Challenges and opportunities beyond 2021

➤   And more!

Why Inside P&C North America Conference 2021?

We very much look forward to welcoming you to this year’s online conference, enabling you to join discussions, be part of the debates and reunite with industry peers as we emerge from the pandemic.
