Virtual Asia Insurance Brokers’ Summit
Theme: “A perfect vision for brokers: driving business in the data tech era”
9 June, Live Online, 9am – 5pm (Singapore Time) 
The time is now to change the way we do business. COVID-19 has been a wake-up call for the world. And almost without a warning, arrives a total business climate change. 
Nobody is spared, and neither are brokers who have played an important, strategic role in the old world. But now, how do you continue to service your clients, with sophistication and efficiency, without losing the personal touch that used to be the normal way of doing business?
Asia Insurance Review is pleased to provide you the way – join us in our Virtual Brokers’ Summit like no other. We have put together an exciting platform for you to ‘meet’ your clients in the virtual space, to have real discussions, without the risks, whilst also looking for new potential clients. We have designed the space for you to network, have private virtual meetings either in a group or one-to-one, get lead generation – as if things haven’t changed.
There will also be a virtual exhibition for those wanting to market their services, as we bring the market to you.

CFO Insights: Navigating the COVID-19 Era
Theme: “Is the current crisis distracting you from getting IFRS 17 ready”
18 June, Live Online, 3pm –5pm (Singapore time)
Today the CFO has to take the lead in the virtualisation of the organisation as well as business transformation around digital, liquidity, cyber, blockchain and now the undetermined impact of COVID-19. There are also additional threats and unknown dangers as countries start to lift their lockdowns coupled with the onset of InsurTech and regulatory changes. With all these challenges and new technologies affecting the finance and insurance sectors – how do CFOs innovate and navigate the new world?
Asia Insurance Review has put together a virtual event to look at the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, IFRS 17 and how the CFO risk agenda is changing globally!
Is the current crisis a distraction from getting IFRS 17 ready? And how do CFOs get ready with all that uncertainty in the air while they are coping with the double whammy of underwriting losses and massive investment write downs? Where is the light at the end of this tunnel for CFOs?

17th Singapore International Reinsurance Conference (SIRC)
Theme: “The art of dissent – reinsurance reality check”
2-5 November, Singapore
The Singapore International Reinsurance Conference was launched in 1991 to provide insurance professionals a forum to meet and discuss issues of the day, while taking stock of developments in the reinsurance market; and starting preparations for the following year’s treaty renewals.
Over the years, the SIRC has gained a strong reputation and loyal following, with reinsurers, insurers and reinsurance brokers from all over the world attending and conducting bilateral discussions alongside the main conference, which has attracted close to 1,000 registered delegates from around the world since 2017 when the conference was organised annually.
EAIC in Seoul postponed to 2022
The organisers of the 30th East Asian Insurance Congress (EAIC) in Seoul have postponed the event from August 2020 to 2022.

A statement issued by the Seoul organising committee for the 30th EAIC said, “We endeavoured to proceed with the planned schedule considering the long tradition of this biennial congress since 1962, as well as the great volume of interest and support we have received from the global insurance industry. However, after careful discussion with our 30th EAIC board and their approval, it became clear that it is in our best interest to postpone the event to 2022 and support the global efforts to fight this health pandemic. Your safety is the highest priority for us, and we believe you will fully understand this decision.”

The statement continued, “Although it was a tough decision to clean the slate considering the financial, administrative and human resources invested so far, we remain optimistic for EAIC 2022 with the strong support we witnessed for this year’s schedule. We want to thank you for your assistance so far and request your continued encouragement. As the saying goes, after a storm comes a calm; we will improve on our experience and offer more fruitful and interesting content for 2022.”
