News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda — The Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) is pleased to announce that we have reached capacity for our inaugural in-person Bermuda Risk Summit. 

The Bermuda Risk Summit, being held from March 14-16, 2022, is the first major, in-person risk event in Bermuda since 2019 and counts CEOs from some of the world’s largest global professional services firms and property and casualty (re)insurers among its attendees.

David Hart, BDA CEO said: “The BDA is thrilled with the level of industry and government support we have received for our first Bermuda Risk Summit. After over two years of meeting virtually, there has been a very strong level of interest from the global risk industry to get back to Bermuda to meet face to face again. We have attracted a great deal of overseas business visitors from the US and UK, who will all be staying in local hotels, eating in local restaurants, and taking taxis to and from local amenities. As we take what we hope will be our first steps out of this global pandemic, the BDA is pleased to be able to support Bermuda’s economy in this important way at this historic time.”

The BDA thanks our diamond sponsors, the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers (ABIR), Aon and EY, our gold sponsor Appleby, and our silver sponsors Ariel Re, Kirkland & Ellis, KPMG, and SiriusPoint. We are also fortunate to have Bermuda Brokers, Florida Insurance Council, Kettle, Meenan PA  and Goslings as additional event sponsors. Our media partner is The Insurer.

Located in the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, the Bermuda Risk Summit will include morning panels, and keynote breakfast and lunch presentations, leaving afternoons free to enjoy excursions, meetings, or networking. Click here to view the full agenda.
