If you only attend one conference this year, make sure it is the Health Insurance Conference 1998.
This major new event, Beyond the Welfare State – New Opportunities–- is organised by Health Insurance magazine and sponsored by PPP healthcare It will be held 23 November at the Commonwealth Conference Centre, Kensington, London.
This event replaces the highly successful Health Insurance Monitor Conference which has been running for three years. This year promises to be even bigger and better.
This challenging conference will bring together leading intermediaries and insurers, covering key topics of relevance to everyone in the health insurance industry.
The conference is designed to give industry professionals the opportunity to increase both their knowledge and their skills.
Beyond the Welfare State – New Opportunities, will provide the ideal forum to take advantage of market developments. Fifty years ago private insurance was excluded from both the new NHS and the Welfare State. But as we reach the millennium, private healthcare is playing an increasingly crucial role in the health of the nation.
The conference will ask what contribution private insurance will make over the next five years and what opportunities this will create for intermediaries, both in the individual and group markets. Health Insurance’s technical editor, Andy Couchman, will be chairman of the conference. Delegates will hear speeches from three key industry figures. Speakers include Dudley Lusted, business consultant with PPP healthcare, who will be dissecting the longevity of corporate PMI and asking what we as an industry can do to develop competitive strategies for healthcare.
Peter Le Beau of Swiss Re Life & Health will be tackling the issue of how insurers respond to market trends and how intermediaries best influence change.
Other special guest speakers will be announced next month.
The plenary sessions will also feature the launch of Health Insurance’s Industry Trends Survey, which will exclusively report the ideas and opinions of the market as a whole.
After lunch, delegates attend one of the five afternoon workshops. Topics include developments in employee benefits, improve your marketing of health insurance and the future of long term care insurance.
The workshops will give delegates the chance to debate major health insurance issues and to hear the views of fellow professionals.
The Health Insurance Conference will be the health conference of the year. It will appeal to anyone committed to the future of private health insurance, into the millennium and beyond.
Full details of the conference will be printed in next month’s issue of Health Insurance, but don’t forget to put the date 23 November in your diary now! For more information, call: Rebecca Griffiths on 0171 505 8182.
