Join us at the upcoming Canadian Insurance Conference!

We have an exciting conference planned this April, kicking off the conference with our distinguished Senior Leadership Panel, Moderated by Simon Chan of Communitech, with our guest panel featuring Drazen Lalovic, VP Positive Partnerships, Digital Health Solutions of Sun Life Canada, Igal Mayer, CEO of Kanetix Ltd. and Peter Ohnemus, Founder, Chairman, President and CEO of dacadoo ag & dacadoo americas, inc.

We are thrilled to have Geoffrey G. Parker, as our special Keynote Lunch Speaker. Mr. Parker is a co-author of the Platform Revolution, the first authoritative, fact-based book on platform models. Whether platforms are connecting sellers and buyers, hosts and visitors, or drivers with people who need a ride, this book has revealed the what, how, and why of this revolution and provides the first “owner’s manual” for creating a successful platform business. This is a not to be missed presentation!

Our Theme this is year is 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.

Most of the largest companies in our economy are platform owners, that create and maintain a marketplace for buyers and sellers to interact. Most make very little of the content or goods sold or consumed by the buyers of the platform. Insurance, and reinsurance will evolve to participate in these platforms, and a few will create and maintain platforms of their own. This evolution will arrive, and it is important to be prepared to succeed when it does. Our comprehensive agenda of main stage and breakout sessions will support the understanding of platforms and how they can be used and created by insurers. In addition, industry experts will provide insights on the latest trends in Underwriting, Claims, Operations, Pricing & Product development, and Finance.

We look forward to seeing you this April at our 63rd CRC Conference!
