Where the MENA insurance markets meet

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.


 

DWIC drives debate

DWIC is a great place to learn, share new ideas and debate the market.

In addition to international keynotes sharing global perspectives, DWIC20 will host a series of topic-led Satellite Sessions.


 

Network at DWIC

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. A brand new booking system will be available for DWIC20 with the option to reserve tables and meeting rooms for the two-day event.


 

DWIC Honours 2020

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 DWIC20 and all of our delegates will be invited to join the celebrations

Entry opens on 1 September 2019.
