UAE: 13th Annual World Takaful Conference (WTC)

Join over 300 industry leaders comprising CEOs, CIOs & Dignitaries from around the world at the 13th Annual World Takaful Conference (WTC) convened by leading financial intelligence platform Middle East Global Advisors in strategic partnership with the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Authority and supported by the Insurance Authority (IA). The conference will take shape under the theme of “Differentiation, Innovation & Profitable Growth” on April 09 at the Dusit Thani Hotel, Dubai.

The World Takaful Conference (WTC) is the leading and longest running global forum for Takaful and has played an instrumental role in the development of the industry for more than a decade by connecting key markets like the GCC & South East Asia to emerging markets, in turn facilitating thought-provoking discussions, producing quality research & generating actionable insights.

As the industry navigates through the complex global insurance landscape, there is a greater need for its leaders to share insights and deliberate on new strategies to help it grow beyond its niche status. Leading Regulators and industry leaders including H.E. Ebrahim Obaid Al Zaabi, Director General, Insurance Authority (IA), Abdulla Al Awar, CEO, Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre (DIEDC), Salmaan Jaffery, Chief Business Development Officer, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Authority and Dave Matcham, Chief Executive Officer, The International Underwriting Association of London (IUA), will keynote this year’s edition.

2017 saw the inception of the inaugural InsurTech Integrated – a dedicated stream to highlight the importance of developing digital proficiency amongst insurance and Takaful operators in the light of stiff competition. After garnering overwhelming response, InsurTech-focused discussions will feature prominently at this year’s WTC too.

Key Features at the 13th WTC include: Keynote Speeches by regional regulatory authorities and global leaders in insurance & Takaful; Conversations with leading economists in the region; A power-packed CEO Debate discussing the future of Takaful; A dedicated InsurTech Stream; One-on-one interview with a Shari’ah scholar on Innovation & InsurTech, Live polling on key issues gravitating around Takaful, a dedicated WTC exhibition and a host of plenary sessions with industry leaders, regulators, economists, and technology gurus gravitating around the key themes affecting the Takaful industry at large.
