AIRMIC plans to host a series of virtual conferences

Following the success of its first phone in – on the subject of insurer security – AIRMIC is planning to introduce a series of similar discussions on topical issues in 2009. The inaugural event, at which AIG UK chief executive Lex Baugh and legal, broking and ratings experts answered questions from members, attracted over 100 listeners.

AIRMIC chief executive John Hurrell commented: ‘We have demonstrated that this format works. More than 100 AIRMIC members were able to listen to senior people discussing matters of great importance to the market, without leaving their offices.’
