As it has been the rule in previous versions, this year the event will feature the participation of world-class speakers who will share their vision on technical and environmental factors, which will determine the course of the marine insurance business over the next five years.
Without a doubt, the main point that will guide much of the discussions and reflections throughout the next Virtual Congress will be the COVID-19 and its impact on underwriting, risk management, and compensation practices, as well as on the business environment: the economy, trade flows, shipping companies, ports, logistics operators and the reinsurance market.
Evidently, as a result of the Pandemic, digital transformation accelerated, consumption patterns changed, the fragility of global supply chains was revealed, and awareness of several unnoticed or underestimated risks was raised. In this context, the eighth ALSUM Conference becomes the best opportunity for those who accept marine risks, their allies, customers, and suppliers can prepare to face the challenges that new normal imposes on the branch in its different dimensions.
The Technical Committees of Cargo and Hull of our Association, made up of outstanding professionals of different nationalities and connections of the insurance chain, have identified the most relevant topics of discussion in such rough seas. The data science at the service of the underwriting, the emerging risks that will shape the claims, the evolution of the underwriter’s talents, the business opportunities during and after the pandemic, the challenges of assuring delays in supply networks and the risks arising from the massive boat lay-up are some of the sharing conferences that will take place throughout the three days of the event.
Based on previous years and given the ease of the virtual connection, ALSUM awaits the registration over 500 attendees who will be able to interact with each other, including (re)insurers, brokers, adjusters, risk managers, cargo agents, logistics and port operators, maritime lawyers, trade associations, universities and authorities.
Finally, in the virtual trade fair, the showrooms, and the networking rooms, attendees will be able to know the value proposition and the solutions of our sponsors.
