There are less than two months to go until the start of the ICMIF Centenary Conference (25-28 October 2022) in Rome (Italy) – the place that ICMIF was founded 100 years ago.

The ICMIF Centenary Conference – hosted by the Unipol Group, one of our founding members – will stimulate original ideas for better business performance for our members. The Conference will give them the chance to gain clear insights into the trends that are shaping the future of our industry and enjoy unparalleled networking opportunities with peers from member companies around the world.

There are already over 250 delegates registered for the Conference, and ICMIF members are able to download the current delegate list via this link.

The Centenary Conference theme is Leading with purpose and the full agenda of plenary sessions, breakout discussions and networking opportunities will look into these three key areas:

Mutuality at the heart of a purpose-led business

  • Mutuality as an enabler and authenticator of a purpose-driven business strategy.
  • Leveraging the mutual/cooperative difference in the customer value proposition to create a competitive advantage.
  • Communicating the benefits of mutuality and social purpose in a way that is relevant for today’s customers.

Creating value by embedding sustainability

  • Sustainability as a strategic differentiator that creates long-term, sustainable value for all stakeholders.
  • Leading the industry from risk protection to prevention by building community and societal resilience.
  • Expanding on ESG commitments in an integrated approach towards a net-zero future.

Adapting our businesses to thrive in the future

  • Embracing digitalisation to transform our businesses to become truly customer-centric.
