What springs to mind when you think of May? The warmer temperatures and flowering buds? Who will triumph and lift the Premier League title (as a Manchester United fan, this is unfortunately not the case for me)? Or perhaps, as brokers and insurers, it is the BIBA Conference. Cancelled in 2020, and online in 2021, the 2022 conference is the highlight of the events calendar for the team at FloodFlash. Read on to find out more about BIBA and what the team are looking forward to next week.
What is BIBA?
BIBA – The British Insurance Brokers’ Association – is the UK’s leading broker organisation. BIBA was formed in 1977 to represent independent insurance brokers. Today, BIBA membership includes around 1800 regulated firms, consisting of over 100,000 staff. It is well established as the insurance sector’s most powerful and authoritative voice.
The BIBA Conference 2022 – The Lowdown
Every year, thousands of insurance professionals gather under one roof for the BIBA Conference. The event provides an opportunity for the industry to reunite, network, and do business together. There are speeches from insurance experts, politicians, and many other famous faces.
When is it?
This year’s conference is running over Wednesday the 11th May and Thursday 12th May, 2022.
How many people will be there?
More than 5000 brokers are expected to attend the Conference, along with over 200 exhibitors, and 40+ speakers.
Who is speaking?
This year, there is once again a smattering of famous faces presenting at the conference. Here are some of our favourites:
- Huw Edwards, BBC Broadcaster
- Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester
- Sheldon Mills, Exec Director, Consumers and Competition, FCA
- Dame Laura Kenny, Nicola Adams OBE, and Jonnie Peacock MBE
You can see the full agenda for the two days here.
Why are we excited?
There are many reasons the FloodFlash team are excited to attend BIBA next week. Perhaps the biggest is that we get the first chance to defend our ‘Best Small Stand’ title. Jokes aside, Broker Success Executive Ben sums it up best:
‘I’m looking forward to meeting new brokers who see parametric as the great product we all know it is. This means we can bring FloodFlash to more customers who need it.’
