HAMILTON, Bermuda, July 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Preparations are well underway for Latin America’s third biennial ALARYS risk-management conference in Bermuda this September, with early-bird registration and hotel rates offered via a new website (http://alarys.bm/) launched by lead sponsor Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA).
The three-day event, to be held September 25–27 at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, will be opened by Premier Michael Dunkley, and will feature a full slate of speakers, including BDA CEO Ross Webber and FUNDALARYS President Jorge Luzzi. More than 150 delegates are expected for the event, geared to risk managers from throughout the Latin American region.
It will be the third time the Fundación Latinoamericana de Administración de Riesgos ALARYS (FUNDALARYS) has chosen Bermuda as host country for the trilingual conference; the Latin American Congress on Risk Management and Insurance was held previously in 2004 and 2010 in Bermuda—the only non-Latin venue in its 20-year history.
“FUNDALARYS is looking forward to hosting the conference in Bermuda,” said Luzzi, who also serves as Executive Vice-President of the International Federation of Risk and Insurance Management Associations (IFRIMA). “This is a unique opportunity to interact with specialists of all areas of the industry. We have confirmations for top-level participants, from economists and politicians to regulators and executive members of the insurance and reinsurance community.”
Early-bird rates for hotel accommodation and event registration are being offered through August 31 via the website, which also details speakers, agenda details, hotel and travel information, and package options for sponsors and exhibitors.
“The fact FUNDALARYS selected Bermuda for the third time illustrates our close ties to the LatAm region,” said BDA Business Development Manager Jereme Ramsay. “With the increasing number of Latin American companies incorporating captive insurers and other structures in our jurisdiction, specifically from Mexico, Colombia, Chile and Peru, Bermuda’s hosting of FUNDALARYS provides a great opportunity to showcase our jurisdiction.”
Sponsors of ALARYS Congress 2016 include: PwC, Appleby, HSBC Bermuda, Brokers Link, Estera Services (Bermuda), Butterfield Bank, Artex Risk Solutions (Bermuda), ASW Law, Armour Group Holdings, KPMG, Conyers, AON (Bermuda), Citadel Management Bermuda, R&Q Quest Bermuda, and JLT Insurance Management.
“As the LatAm representative of one of the Bermuda firms that has greatly benefitted from ALARYS in the past, I can highly recommend industry professionals attend this very relevant conference, as it offers opportunities to meet and listen to some of LatAm’s most influential risk-management and reinsurance advisers and business providers,” said Appleby’s Latin America Manager Eduardo Fox.
“We’re encouraged by the strong industry support we’ve received for FUNDALARYS,” noted BDA Conferences & Events Manager Nicole Conrad Morrison. “Our BDA committee, together with industry partners and the FUNDALARYS executive, have developed a strong agenda with influential speakers from Bermuda, Latin America and globally. We have seen a lot of interest from the LatAm region, and are encouraging guests to arrive early and enjoy our beautiful island.”
