About EIF2018

We have big plans for EIF2018

EIF will be the flagship event of the Insurance Ireland annual calendar with a target of 400 delegates for 2018

  • It will incorporate Insurance Ireland’s previous Annual President’s Conference and include a President’s Gala Dinner.
  • It will be aimed at senior industry executives, c-suite and senior decision makers and stakeholders from across all our industry sectors.
  • It will be the Industry’s Flagship International Conference representing the totality of all of our sectors & our jurisdiction.


About the European Insurance Forum

The European Insurance Forum (EIF) is a leading European conference for the re/insurance sectors.

Since it was first held in 1999, EIF has become a signature event in the Irish and European re/insurance and captive calendars: it is a place to learn, network and do business with peers and clients.

The conference has built a reputation for considering the strategic trends and challenges affecting the re/insurance and captive industry.

We’re aiming for a record attendance at EIF2018 with 400 C-suite executives and senior decision makers.  With a stellar line-up of international speakers including global industry experts, thought leaders and change makers, you can expect to be challenged and informed as we consider how our industry is facing up to the future.

EIF is a one day conference followed by a cocktail reception and gala dinner.

About the conference theme

Ours is a global business and one that is defined by managing risk. Industry and business strategy is driven by a deep understanding of the issues and risks we face and the ever changing environment in which we operate.

The EIF2018 theme is “Crafting an Industry for a Modern Vision” inspired in part by the setting for EIF2018, Trinity College Dublin.  The conference will challenge our traditions  on the one hand and our bravery on the other, to inspire our industry to be outward focused and relevant for a modern vision in our ever changing consumer and risk landscape.

We will therefore examine old issues and new challenges: regulatory harmony versus regulatory arbitrage, “re-fragmentation versus globalisation”, taxation, consolidation, new technologies versus legacy systems. And lots more.

We have had many of the world’s senior global industry figures and policy makers participate in EIF over the years. We will have more at EIF2018.
