Conference – Nassau, Bahamas

The AIIC aims to host an educational conference each year in one of its member territories.  The conference is usually organized by the local institute, with guidance from The AIIC’s Executive Body. The conference, which is usually held in November, is aimed at industry executives as well as future leaders who are interested in insurance education. Topics covered are chosen to stimulate the thinking of regional leaders and educate and inform them on current trends within our industry. It also provides an avenue for professionals from the various territories to come together to exchange ideas and best practices.


This year’s conference is being held in The Bahamas and The Insurance Institute of The Bahamas is responsible for its organisation. The conference’s theme is:


As with any conference, to be a success, support is needed from the local industry, both from a sponsorship perspective and from attendance of industry professionals.  It is for this reason that we are now reaching out to you. On the following pages are ways in which you can support this conference dedicated to the development of our industry. We ask that you review the partnership opportunities and let us know which you may be interested in. A member of our team will reach out to you shortly to discuss this with you.


We look forward to your support.
