Co-hosted by Global Reinsurance and the Dubai International Financial Centre Authority (DIFC), the 5th annual Dubai World Insurance Congress (DWIC) re-imagines the traditional conference to deliver unrivalled networking, business and thought leadership opportunities, all under one roof.
Global Reinsurance first came to the region in 2007, launching Multaqa Qatar and delivering the event successfully for a decade. In 2017, the Dubai World Insurance Congress [DWIC] launched.
Since we last came together in February 2020, the pandemic crisis continues and we have had to learn to adapt – the way we live, the way we work, the way we travel. DWIC has also adapted to become a ‘hybrid’ event – a ‘live’ event with a virtual element for viewing sessions and facilitating virtual meetings.
For 2022, the 5th annual DWIC will be hosted at the Ritz Carlton DIFC – on the doorstep to one of the world’s most advanced financial centres, and the leading financial hub for the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA).
Since it’s launch in 2017, DWIC has focused on providing senior insurance executives with a platform to meet and do business. Working with brokers, insurers and reinsurers, DWIC 2020 brought together regional cedants reinforcing its position as the regional focal point for (re)insurance transactions.
As well as a great place to meet existing clients, DWIC offers attendees the opportunity to make new contacts. In 2022, DWIC will be located at the DIFC and within walking distance of local offices as well as an abundance of bars and restaurants where DWIC ‘fringe’ events can be hosted. In 2020, DWIC saw more than 4,000 meetings scheduled.
DWIC is a great place to share new ideas and international keynote speakers will take to the main stage for a special DWIC Welcome Back session at The Atrium in 2022. Business leaders and entrepreneurs will also be hosting a two-day programme of topic led Satellite Sessions at the Ritz Carlton.
