Share

Registration is under way and filling fast for Bermuda Tech Week 2019 which will take place at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club from October 14-18, 2019.

The programme of insightful and engaging events will explore future opportunities and challenges presented by emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, digital assets, insurtech and virtual reality. It will showcase Bermuda’s ongoing success in creating a welcoming, stable and well-regulated environment where technology and start-up companies can thrive.

“Bermuda has a long history of innovation so we understand and recognise the power of technology to positively impact both the economy and society,” said Bermuda Premier David Burt. “Over the past two years, we have built on our strength as a global leader in regulating the risks associated with the global insurance industry to develop a clear regulatory framework around managing the risks associated with Fintech. Our progressive approach has drawn accolades in U.S. Senate hearings and from an SEC commissioner in providing the kind of guidance, oversight and clarity needed for the industry to deliver on its mission to make financial services more accessible to people around the globe. Being at the forefront of innovation will help drive economic growth and job creation so we remain committed to being at the forefront of emerging trends, which is why we look forward to hosting Bermuda Tech Week 2019 in October.”

Andy Burrows, CEO of the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA), said: “Bermuda Tech Week 2019 comes at an ideal time and builds on the momentum we have seen in the market, driven by new and innovative legislation. Industry, government and regulatory authorities here in Bermuda work closely together to deliver an environment that facilitates progress. This is reflected in the programme of events that our team has put together. Our aim is for all attendees to come away with a better knowledge of how new technologies can be deployed to drive efficiencies in business and, importantly, what Bermuda has to offer the global market as a domicile of choice for tech companies and start-ups.”

At the heart of Bermuda Tech Week 2019 is the Bermuda Tech Summit which will take place on Wednesday, October 16 under the theme ‘Focused on the Future’. Bermuda’s Premier, David Burt, is set to deliver an opening address. Hosted by the BDA, in partnership with FinTech Bermuda, the all-day summit is free to attend and will explore the transformational impact of technology on investment and business models in a wide range of industry sectors relevant to Bermuda, from hospitality and financial services to telecommunications and insurance. Attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of how Bermuda’s business environment is facilitating innovation.
