Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 63rd annual Canadian Insurance Conference.

We had a terrific conference this year and want to thank all speakers and guests who attended. Special thanks to our Senior Leadership panel moderated by Simon Chan of Communitech, with our guest panel featuring Peter Ohnemus, Founder, Chairman, President and CEO of dacadoo ag & dacadoo americas, inc., Igal Mayer, CEO of Kanetix Ltd. and Drazen Lalovic, VP Positive Partnerships, Digital Health Solutions of Sun Life Canada. As well as our Guest Keynote Speaker, Geoffrey G. Parker, co-author of the Platform Revolution, the first authoritative, fact-based book on platform models.

Along with these business leaders, we had over 40 other subject matter experts supporting our 12 breakout sessions. Take a moment to review our 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!

Our Theme this year was fittingly - the Platform Revolution. We see Platforms being used more and more throughout everyone’s work and personal life, and as such many would agree they are the future of the new economy, with most people using them seamlessly in their life today.

Our comprehensive agenda included main stage and breakout sessions that supported the understanding of platforms and how they can be used and created by insurers. In addition, industry experts provided insights on the latest trends in Underwriting, Claims, Operations, Pricing & Product development, and Finance.

Save the date today and mark your calendar for next year’s 2020 Conference being held at the MTCC on March 24, 2020!
