Thank you for attending the 58th Annual Canadian Reinsurance Conference
Location: Metro Toronto Convention Centre
We had a terrific conference this year, and want to thank all speakers and guests who attended.
Both Keynotes - Julie Dickson - Superintendent of the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions, and Dr. Michel Maila, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Global Risk Institute, presented compelling presentations.
Along with these business leaders, we had over 35 other subject matter experts presenting in our breakout sessions. Take a moment to review our the breakout sessions.
The CRC is one of the longest running and largest annual life (re)insurance gatherings in the world. It attracts over 500 delegates from insurance, reinsurance and retrocession companies, as well as a wide range of other key industry stakeholders including regulators, suppliers and consultants. Delegates attend from Canada, the United States and abroad to experience a unique combination of thought provoking information/education sessions and professional networking opportunities, all packaged into a dynamic one-day conference format!
The 2014 Conference Theme was: REflect. REwire. REsurge.
Since the financial crisis began in 2008, the insurance industry has undergone tremendous change. Many regulatory, accounting, product and pricing changes have taken place. While all of this has been going on, the way we interact with companies has changed and people are facing the likelihood of much longer lives.
There are many opportunities and challenges facing the industry as we move forward. As leaders in the industry we are looking for new ways of getting our products to market as well as managing and mining data to improve our results and processes.
This year's conference looked at how we conducted business, how we have rewired key elements to react to the market, and how we plan to surge ahead to support a vibrant industry. The meeting brought together a number of the above themes that are of concern and interest to both direct writers and reinsurers.
We were thrilled to have a number exceptional industry leaders speaking at the conference, as well as having a wonderful group of guests in attendance.
Save the date today and mark your calendar for next year's 2015 Conference being held in the North Building, at the MTCC on April 14, 2015, for what promises to be one of the "must attend" industry events for 2015 !
