Gibbs Laidler Risk and Insurance Annual Conference 2019
With the sector firmly in the grip of development it was clear that we needed to cover both the insurance issues and risks that development activity brings. For those who have attended the Gibbs Laidler conferences in the past, you will know that we carefully select speakers to raise awareness of a specific issue and share both knowledge and experience. The 2019 conference will be a little different in that the speakers will be from leading insurers who specialise in insuring development risks. Each of the speakers will cover the approach they adopt when underwriting and we are confident this will enable the delegates to leave the conference with a greater understanding as to how insurers use your information to determine both the premiums and the cover underwriters provide.
The conference will run over two days and one night, with the cost at £225 for our current clients and £250 for non-clients (all inclu. VAT). A £100 deposit will be required to confirm your place. The cost of the conference will include a nights stay at the 4* Principal York hotel, speaker packs and covers all meals and refreshments.
