The next Dubai World Insurance Congress has now been confirmed for Wednesday 9 and Thursday 10 March 2022. 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).
We are building a ‘Hybrid’ event for the future. A ‘Hybrid’ event that can be delivered despite the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. A ’Hybrid’ event for the future that is sustainable and has the potential to reach a wider audience across the global [re]insurance market.
The place to do business
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 will adhere to the COVID safety directive set out by the Dubai Government. It will follow the lead of Expo2020, which successfully opened in October 2021 and welcomes thousands of visitors each day.
