’I’m already counting down the days until the Biba conference 2024 and can’t wait to welcome everyone,’ says chief executive 

Biba has revealed that it will use the theme What’s next? for its 2024 conference.

In a statement released yesterday (12 December 2023), the association said it chose the theme as it was a key question following challenges such as inflation and the increase of new innovations using artificial intelligence (AI).

Biba also said that insurance brokers want to stay ahead of the curve on emerging risks and financial protection and do that by thinking about what to do next.

It came after Biba decided to go with the Rising to the Challenge theme in 2023.

Graeme Trudgill, Biba chief executive, said: “After choosing a reflective theme for last years’ conference, we wanted to look forward this year and support brokers in navigating What’s next? on the horizon.

“At the Biba conference 2024 we will be discussing What’s next? for insurance brokers, from cyber risk and AI to recruiting the next generation of young brokers and the changing political landscape.

”I’m already counting down the days until the Biba conference 2024 and can’t wait to welcome everyone.”
