About EIF


EIF is the flagship event of the Insurance Ireland annual calendar with a target of 400 delegates for 2020.

  • It is aimed at senior industry executives, c-suite and senior decision makers and stakeholders from across all our industry sectors.
  • It is 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.

EIF’s reputation and attendance grows annual with a delegate post conference survey rating of 4+ (out of 5, 5 being excellent).  We will continue to grow the number of delegates as we create a programme that has relevance for all of Insurance Ireland’s industry sectors.

Speaking following EIF2019, the then Insurance Ireland CEO Kevin Thompson said: “EIF is our landmark conference. It has grown each year and we always look to expand the scope and ambition around the conference”.

EIF2020 will be a one day conference followed by a networking reception and will be held in the Printworks, Dublin Castle, a first for EIF, on the 8th of October, 2020.

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.

Our theme for EIF2020 is GENERATIONS – how data, talent and tech are shaping the future of risk.

We are working on an exciting agenda with a number of firsts for EIF. It will include:

  • Ireland for Finance 2025
  • Insurtech – 3 companies pitching their stories followed by a panel discussion
  • Finance, Society and Sustainability
  • Health and wellness:
    • To respond to demands at an ever-quicker pace, and to retain top talent, individuals and organisations need to maintain high levels of wellbeing and deep reserves of resilience.
    • Advancing health insurance through technology: how telemedicine, AI and Iot are changing the engagement model, and how / can prevention and wellness be encouraged by health insurers. What can we learn from the industry.
  • Solvency II, European Integration.
  • Generations: how to future-proof businesses so that they avoid the traps associated with senior executives’ embedded generational assumptions.

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 EIF2020.
