Oxbow Partners announced as Content Partner for Insurance 3.0 Conference
July 3, 2018 Chris Sandilands
We are delighted to announce that Oxbow Partners will be the Content Partner for Insurance 3.0, the new name for the 2018 MarketMinds InsurTech conference.
Insurance 3.0 will move the InsurTech conversation forwards.
In our InsurTech Impact 25 report we predicted that 2018 would be a transition year for InsurTech from hype to impact. We noted that “over the last two years, executives have been excited by ideas and opportunities” but that few had realised any tangible benefit. We said that the emphasis would shift to “execution and results” and that incumbents would focus on some specific strategic themes.
We believe that market events need to facilitate this shift, and we are excited to be helping shape Insurance 3.0’s unique agenda.
Insurance 3.0 will bring together senior insurance buyers, industry executives and innovators to consider how insurance must change to remain an indispensable financial service.
The agenda will focus on specific and realistic use cases for new technologies like AI and blockchain. We will hear about insurers’ real-world experiences of startup partnerships to help understand how to create value, not just complete a pilot. We must avoid the echo-chamber of the current innovation community.
Insurance 3.0 promises to be the first of a next generation of insurance innovation meetings and we are excited to be creating it. We’d love to see you there. You can buy tickets here.
