ITIJ Editor and ITIC Chairman, Ian Cameron, has confirmed in a letter to the ITIC International Travel & Health Insurance community that he intends for ITIC Global 2021 to take place an in-person event, in Madrid from 31st October to 4th November.
ITIJ at ITIC Global
The ITIJ team will be attending ITIC Global in Madrid, with Managing Editor Mandy Langfield on stage with Editor in Chief Ian Cameron doing the moderating of the conference’s educational sessions. Ian said: “I am delighted to be able to run an in-person ITIC Global event again. We all missed seeing our industry friends and colleagues over the past 18 months or so, and it’ll be great to hear the buzz of people networking throughout the event, interacting with each other during the sessions and catching up later on during the social engagements we will be running. I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
We know how vital ITIC events are to encourage engagement and build relationships with your providers, so come join us and be reunited with peers and colleagues in the international travel and health insurance industry.
We are adhering to all national health and safety guidelines, and have worked hard with the conference venue, Hotel Riu Plaza España, to keep our event as safe as possible for you. Masks, social distancing and hand gel will be standard; more information on Covid protocols can be found here.
ITIC agenda reflects issues affecting travel and health insurance
The ITIC Team has developed an agenda that covers a spectrum of topics relevant to our industry, with Covid taking top billing as we evaluate how the industry reacted to this seismic shift in risk and customer expectations. Is the industry accepting the new reality of the risks travellers are facing with regards to cancellation and curtailment of holidays? And how have air ambulance and assistance companies reacted to the challenge of transporting infectious patients?
Expert speakers in assistance and air ambulance medicine, travel risk management, and international healthcare provision, will be sharing their insights about how the industry has coped, what it has learned, and how it will move forward after the pandemic.
Get networking with insurance industry peers
The ITIC App is being freshened up and will be ready to go shortly, so you can build those all important networking connections before you get to Madrid, and organise your meetings for when you’re there.
