Asia:Embracing life at the 29th East Asian insurance Congress in May

| 19 Mar 2018

Calling all current and potential stakeholders keen to tap the opportunities in Asia's massive insurance market!

On 6-9 May, the biennial East Asian Insurance Congress (EAIC) will return to Manila, Philippines.

This year, the theme is “Managing Disruptions, Driving Change”. One key difference of this 29th EAIC, compared to previous years, is its embrace of life market players as the event moves to target the entire insurance industry—both life and general, and not just the non-life players.

Another change is that this year’s EAIC will be staged for the first time in the first half of the year instead of the customary second half.

The 29th EAIC aims not only to tackle the challenges of the day, but to also offer solutions and strategic tips to cope with issues, guide industry players to emerge as winners, and provide extensive networking opportunities for delegates.

There will be a comprehensive series of market reports from Chief Delegates of various Asian countries. Hot topics include leadership, millennials and insurance, disruptions and analytics, digital forensics and the underwriting of the future, amid others. There will also be networking cocktails galore!

The programme this year also features the presentation of the 3rd Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards that is organised by Asia Insurance Review, which promises to be an inspiring and momentous gala event that all life agents and advisers should attend. AIR is also the official media partner of the EAIC.

The EAIC 2018 organisers are the Philippine Insurers and Reinsurers Association (PIRA) and the Philippine Life Insurance Association. The National Reinsurance Corporation of the Philippines (Nat Re), a member organisation of PIRA, is actively involved as the official administrator of conference funds.

Manila was the host of the second EAIC in 1964, and it was the host again in 1980 and 2000.

In 1962, the EAIC was founded with the ultimate goal of furthering international collaboration in the field of insurance of every sort. Every other year, the hosting of the EAIC rotates across member cities to continue the networking mission across the region. The 28th EAIC, held in Macau on 11-15 October 2016, drew over 900 delegates.

The EAIC is an absolute must-attend event on your calendar. Register now at!
