Insurance Times is back at the Grosvenor House Hotel this December, welcoming around 1,000 guests to the must-attend awards celebration of the year

The Insurance Times Awards are back with a bang in 2021, with just two weeks to go until this year’s prestigious, in-person event at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on Thursday 9 December.

Following last year’s virtual celebration, 2021’s black tie event will see around 1,000 insurance professionals and thought leaders – including insurers, brokers and ecosystem suppliers – gather in Grosvenor House Hotel’s renowned Great Room for a drinks reception, superb three course dinner and, of course, the all-important award presentations.

Guests will also be entertained by 2021’s host - Welsh actor and comedian Rob Brydon, who is well loved for his role in sitcom Gavin and Stacey.

There are an incredible 36 awards available on the night. As a reminder, here are this year’s finalists:
