ITIC Global is over for another year, see you in 2018?
6th December 2017
The first ever ITIC Global conference for the international travel & health insurance community, ITIC Cannes 1993, saw 60 key players in travel insurance gather to network and debate the issues affecting our industry. 25 years later ITIC Global Barcelona 2017, welcomed over 950 attendees from all sectors of our vast industry during the 5 days we set up shop at the stunning W Barcelona!
Thank you to all of our sponsors, the ITIC advisory committee, speakers and, of course, our ITIC attendees for making the 2017 ITIC Global conference the best attended yet and your continued support.
More than 50 expert speakers shared their insights into 27 topics of great importance to our industry. 30 hours of sessions covered duty of care, mental health, cyber security,fraud and claims investigation, medical network development, accreditation, start-up distruptors, remote & geographical assistance challenges, security shaping insurance, moving drugs across borders, crisis management, cross border health insurance solutions plus a series of case studies sharing unique situations handled recently. We introduced another forum to the ITIC mix to join the Medical Directors Forum and International Provider Networks Forum. The Air Ambulance committee forum gave the floor to the leading figures who make up our Air Ambulance advisory board, they shared their expertise with the delegation in attendance and covered all the questions you need to ask your providers.
From the moment attendees set foot in the lobby at the W, networking was the order of the day. It is always wonderful to see old friends greeting each other at another ITIC event! The exhibition and networking area opened on Sunday afternoon for registration before AIG invited those new to ITIC to take in the views at sunset from the Eclipse Bar on the 26th floor. The official ITIC Welcome Reception took place at Casa Llotja de Mar, New Frontier group played host at the medieval stock exchange were attendees enjoyed cocktails, canapes and conversation for the evening and set the tone for a fantastic week at ITIC.
ITIJ, our official media partner, were there to report on all the issues raised during the sessions and were filming for ITIJ TV’s Industry Insights segment. Click here to read ITIJ’s ITIC Global Barcelona 2017 review with a full round-up of the event.
