Co-hosted by Global Reinsurance and the Dubai International Financial Centre Authority (DIFC), the third annual Dubai World Insurance Congress (DWIC) re-imagines the traditional conference to deliver unrivalled networking, business and thought leadership opportunities, all under one roof.
DWIC is a great place to share new ideas and his year’s plenary sessions bring together an outstanding line up of international (re)insurance leaders.
Want to keep abreast of the latest thought leadership innovations? Look no further than the DWIC’s Satellite Sessions – covering Healthcare, Takaful, Emerging Markets, Financial Inclusion and a [Re]insurance Market Review.
Since its launch in 2017, DWIC has focused on providing senior insurance executives with a platform to meet and do business.
DWIC’s Networking Hall and online meeting scheduler make it easy to arrange business meetings and this year’s expanded Meeting Hub, Premium Lounge, and Client Suites mean there are now even more places to meet.
