News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda — The Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) is sending a delegation to the InsureTech Connect event in Las Vegas from September 20-22. 

BDA Chair, Stephen Weinstein, will speak on a panel entitled ‘Commercial Property Insurance: Catastrophic Events and Novel Risks’ on Wednesday, September 21. BDA CEO, David Hart, and BDA Senior Business Development Coordinator, Korrin Lightbourne, will complete the BDA delegation. 

David Hart said: “It is the perfect time to return to InsureTech Connect, not only for the opportunity to remind attendees that Bermuda remains the world’s risk capital from the stage, but also for the multiple business development opportunities brought about by having an in-person presence at the world’s largest insuretech event. We already have multiple meetings in place with various companies and look forward to sharing the advantages of our blue-chip jurisdiction, including Bermuda’s regulatory excellence, impressive human capital, and spirit of innovation.”  

Korrin Lightbourne said: “I am extremely pleased to have the opportunity to represent Bermuda at InsureTech Connect. Our aim is to inform innovators that the island is the perfect place to beta-test new technologies and open the door to new opportunities for the Bermudian workforce. Bermuda’s extensive history in (re)insurance and burgeoning tech sector make us an ideal choice for insuretechs. If any attendees are interested in meeting with me, or any other member of the BDA delegation, please email us at info@bda.bm, or connect with us on the ITC app.” 

After ITC, the BDA will demonstrate how Bermuda is a centre of resilience and innovation at its fourth annual Bermuda Tech Summit from October 26-28. (Today (September 15) is the last day to receive the early bird rate and hotel space is extremely limited – book soon to avoid disappointment!) And Bermuda’s position as the world’s risk capital will be explored in full at the second annual Bermuda Risk Summit being held from March 6-8, just in time for the June 1 renewal season. Both events will be held at the Hamilton Princess Hotel and Beach Club.
