Registration has opened for the Bermuda Captive Conference (BCC) in June, which will go ahead as a virtual event again this year.
Gemma Godfrey, chief operating officer of The Whitfield Group and a conference management team member, admitted organisers had been keen to host the event with a hybrid model that allowed some delegates to attend in person. However, with many countries still experiencing lockdowns, this idea had to be abandoned, she said.
“Based on metrics and feedback we gathered from the 2020 event, we have a good idea of what attendees and our sponsors are looking for from a virtual product,” she added.
BCC promised to provide an examination of emerging trends in the captive market and meaningful networking experiences, using the digital platform seen for the event in 2020 but with a number of new features.
It will offer video conferencing opportunities for individuals and groups, as well as improved networking flexibility and interactive breakout sessions, the event’s organisers said. Sponsors can make presentations and meet attendees face-to-face directly from their booths.
BCC was created in 2004 to help promote, support and grow the island’s world-leading captive insurance industry sector. Attendees include captive insurance owners, risk managers, sponsors, vendors, plus legal, audit, banking and support services, from Bermuda, North America, Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the UK.
