ITIC Global 2020 new destination announced

TIC Global 2020 - Conference Update

ITIC Global 2020 will take place in Vienna, Austria, from 3-5 November.

With the health and safety of our staff and attendees, for whom ITIC represents such a vital business development and networking platform, uppermost in our minds, we made the decision to move this year’s event to Vienna.

Coronavirus has forced everyone to take stock of their business operations, and the effect of the pandemic on the global travel and health insurance industry was swift and dramatic. ITIC Vienna offers the first opportunity since February for the professional community to come together to analyse how insurers, assistance companies and air ambulance operators coped with outbreak of Covid-19, and going forward, how the industry can adapt to meet the changing demands of customers around the world.

ITIC Vienna 2020 takes place over three days – from Tuesday 3 November to Thursday 5 November. The conference sessions will be wide-ranging in nature and topic, with speakers, panels and forums allowing debate and discussions between sectors. Coronavirus will feature, but there will also be expert insights into cost containment, cruises, fraud, and the risks young travellers continue to take. Some presenters will be on stage in Vienna, while others will offer a virtual presence, but rest assured that our moderator will, as usual, bring everyone together to offer attendees valuable insights into the topic at hand.

While the health and safety of our attendees and staff is uppermost in our minds, we understand how important it is for companies to rebuild and further develop their industry connections while we are going through turbulent financial times. ITIC’s networking opportunities, therefore, remain – with masks and visors supplied as per international health recommendations. The Official ITIC Welcome Function will take place, while coffee and lunch breaks offer the ideal opportunity for attendees to forge new connections and renew old partnerships.

We recognise that not everyone will feel comfortable travelling at this time, and so are offering existing attendees the opportunity to postpone their ITIC Global 2020 registration until 2021, when we hope to be in the Hotel RIU Plaza España in Madrid, Spain.

The ITIJ Awards will take place, albeit in a smaller scale than normal! These awards recognise excellence and innovation in the global travel and health insurance industry, and the providers that service that industry. This year, more than ever, it is important that the companies that went above and beyond to keep their customers safe are rewarded for their efforts by ITIJ – the leading industry journal.

I look forward to seeing you in Vienna. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions. Email us:
