CII AT BIBA 2018 The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) exhibition – held recently in Manchester – is where thousands of delegates from the sector come to create new working relationships and extend their knowledge of what is happening across the profession. The CII enjoyed a hugely successful conference, focusing on: the insurance broking community, educating and informing brokers about the role of the CII; the value and beneﬁts of apprenticeships, including the launch of our new Aspire
programme; and oﬀering guidance on the Insurance Distribution Directive – a new regulation coming into force from October 2018. This all revolved around the CII’s ‘Classroom to Boardroom’ theme and the stand included an anti-gravity room where more than 500 visitors came and had their photo taken during the two-day event. The CII also hosted its annual pre-BIBA drinks reception at the Principal Hotel, where CEO Sian Fisher and CII president Dame Inga Beale welcomed guests and delegates for an evening of networking, food and themed cocktails. Read our report on the BIBA ‘Hackathon’ on page 32.
