The conference organised in partnership with Global Reinsurance magazine will be held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. More than 450 senior executives and experts will convene in Doha to examine strategic industry opportunities and challenges.
Among other topics, the conference will discuss the state and prospects of the global insurance industry, the role of reinsurance in emerging markets, the insurance needs of major infrastructure projects and the rise of Enterprise Risk Management. In addition, Multaqa Qatar 2013 will feature regional CEO and global reinsurance panel debates, organisers said.
QFC Authority CEO and Board Member Shashank Srivastava said: “Multaqa Qatar exemplifies Qatar’s commitment to building a vibrant insurance and reinsurance sector. We believe that the sector is vital to facilitating the transformation of Qatar into a modern, diversified knowledge economy as well as to deepening and broadening the country’s financial markets. Multaqa Qatar is a unique platform for us to harness regional and global dialogue and thought-leadership to promote the development of Qatar’s insurance and reinsurance sector.”
QFC Authority Strategic Development Director Akshay Randeva said: “We have put together a compelling agenda to showcase the burgeoning insurance and reinsurance sector in the Mena region and discuss its interrelation with the global risk markets. “This year’s panel of speakers and more than 450 expected attendees are testimony to the growing attractiveness of Multaqa Qatar as the industry’s key platform and networking event in the MENA region. We believe that in addition to enjoying compelling presentations and discussions, our delegates will discover the best of Qatar’s business and cultural environment.”
Established in 2007, Multaqa Qatar has developed into the leading rendezvous for the risk and (re)insurance industry in the Middle East and North Africa region.
