Widening the reach

Moving the conference online has also provided IUMI with the opportunity to widen the conference’s reach. For the first time all interested maritime professionals are welcome to attend and the event hopes to embrace a broader cross-section of marine insurance participants than ever before. In particular, IUMI hopes that younger underwriters will choose to attend.

A long-standing involvement with IUMI
