About the Conference

The past few years have also seen the insurance industry across the globe struggle with growing premium income. We may have used technology and various other cost saving strategies to attain marginal profits, but we have hardly seen any premium growth. Now is the time to leverage true innovation to create sustainable premium growth.

The secret now lies in fast, effective implementation starting with Identification of the most appropriate distribution model, calculating the resources required, selecting the appropriate partners and design an effective implementation strategy. It may sound easy, but this is where most brilliant ideas fail, before they reach the launch stage. We will deal with this in detail over the two day putting forward speakers to deal with each step of the process.

Africa has no shortage when it comes to innovation, we simply have to unlock the potential in a sustainable way.

On that exciting note, we will again see senior executives from a host of different countries getting together to discuss, debate, share, learn, teach and network with a view to growing innovative business opportunities. As always, you can expect only the most trusted and well-known expert presenters to share ideas and stimulate debate that will see delegates leave with a fresh understanding of the treasures spread across our continent, Africa.

Now in its 7th year, COVER’s Insurance Distribution and Bancassurance Conference, incorporating the well established Insuretech Conference, will this year focus on taking ideas to market. Ideas are just ideas, until they are put into action and achieve results. Many a great idea never become successful because of failed implementation. This is especially problematic when new distribution models are created.Over a jam packed two days with a host of expert speakers we will explore and unpack, elements that are crucial to business success. The conference will be held at The Ritz, Sea Point, Cape Town.
