ICEF2019: “Insurance in the Platform Economy”

Wednesday, August 28, 2019, at the St. James Cathedral Centre

The Platform Economy And Your Insurance Business

Insurers are facing unprecedented challenges. As technology innovation creates new products and services, consumer expectations rise ever higher – often set by the likes of Google and Amazon.

Both insurance incumbents and industry newcomers are trying innovative approaches across all aspects of their business, from culture to product innovation, from customer service to new business models – which will reshape marketing, coverages, claims, and more. The notion of “business as usual” is obsolete.

ICEF2019: “Insurance In The Platform Economy” will bring together industry thought leaders, pioneers who are taking advantage of new models and platforms, and businesses with products and services to help you compete.

Explore the new horizon and prepare your business to compete in the emerging platform economy.

Hear from industry thought leaders, including:
