Ready for ITIC Global 2018?
26th October 2018
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. 26 years later we are preparing for ITIC Global 2018 in Geneva, with over 950 attendees from all sectors of our vast industry planning to join us for 5 days.
More than 50 expert speakers are set to share their insights next week. Sessions will cover the factors to consider when selecting medical transport partners, tackling industry fraud, underwriting trends and regulatory developments, insurance needs of international students, cultural idiosyncracies affecting assistance and repatriation, health risks for international travellers, cyber-risk and data protection, managing high-value medical claims, advice for hospitals on how to meet the needs of their industry partners, air ambulance operational trends, cost containment issues in Mexico and the Caribbean, changing expatriate demographic trend report, delivering prescription medication to expatriates, how to overcome travel insurance challenges around the world, technology in travel and health insurance, plus a series of case studies sharing unique situations handled recently. The Medical Directors Forum and International Provider Networks Forum, have been joined by The Air Ambulance & Medical Assistance Forum which aims to cover all the questions you need to ask your providers.
From the moment attendees set foot in the lobby at the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva, networking is 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 open on Sunday afternoon for registration before ITIC first-timers are invited to join AIG for a welcome drink to introduce them to the industry, the ITIC committee and the ITIJ team. The official ITIC Welcome Reception on Monday will be at Batiment des Forces Mortices, a converted factory which became a theatre, with New Frontier group playing host once again which is bound to set the tone for a fantastic week at ITIC.
ITIJ, our official media partner, will be joining us there to report on all the issues raised during the sessions and the 2018 ITIJ Awards will be hosted at the ITIC Global Finale Dinner on Thursday 1 November. If you aren’t able to join us in Geneva next week, then you can still join us and watch the action unfold live from the awards via our streaming service!
