DWIC2020 will open with a compelling and thought-provoking keynote, focusing on the Global Consumer in 2025, delivered by Ian Hughes, ceo of Consumer Intelligence.
DWIC2020 will also host a series of Satellite Sessions including Cyber; Climate Change; Health Innovation; Takaful Innovation; Emerging Markets-Africa; Service in a Digital World. Smaller discussion groups will come together to look at IFRS and the state of the MENA Market.


Co-hosted by Global Reinsurance and the Dubai International Financial Centre Authority (DIFC), the fourth annual Dubai World Insurance Congress (DWIC) re-imagines the traditional conference to deliver unrivalled networking, business and thought leadership opportunities, all under one roof.


Since its launch in 2017, DWIC has focused on providing senior insurance executives with a platform to meet and do business.
DWIC’s extensive Networking Hall and online meeting scheduler make it easy to arrange business meetings. There will be even more opportunities to host important meetings in 2020 with the addition of our ‘Boardrooms’.
You will also find the InsurTech Demo Zone located in the main Network Hall along with Exhibitor Row and the central Barista service Coffee Bar.


We are delighted to announce the launch of DWIC Honours, designed to recognise and celebrate excellence and innovation across the MENA region. Our 2020 winners will collect their awards at DWIC2020, and our delegates will be invited to join the celebrations. Entry opened in September 2019 and the deadline for final submission is 31 October 2019. TAKE A LOOK
