Danny Walkinshaw rounds up the latest insurance stories online
Our coverage of Biba 2010 proved to be one of the highlights of the brokers’ annual conference.
Alongside regular news items from the two-day event at the ExCeL?centre in London’s Docklands, we delivered four video updates that could be watched either on a 3G phone or on a laptop or desktop.
The four editions included a number of short interviews with senior figures in the industry, including Willis chief executive and chairman Joe Plumeri and Biba chief executive Eric Galbraith.
Our photos of the first and second day of the conference were also a massive hit and sent online traffic soaring. The pictures were taken in and around the exhibition, and gave anyone who could not make it to London a brief taste of what was going on.
Along with a number of Biba 2010-related news stories, the overall coverage of the conference went down a storm with online users. In case you’ve missed something, you can still see all of our Biba 2010 coverage by logging on to insurancetimes.co.uk.
Also ranking high in the online top 10 this week was the news concerning the publication of Towergate’s yearly results – an annual story that always sends web readers into a clicking frenzy – after we broke it exclusively online.
Our online analysis following the 2,000 job cuts at Royal Bank of Scotland Insurance (last week’s most popular story) also got plenty of clicks.
As did the top story in last week’s edition about the expected departure of Quinn Insurance chief executive Colin Morgan, which the company confirmed the following day.
