One-Third of Bermuda Risk Summit Attendees From Overseas
The Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) is pleased to announce that its second annual Bermuda Risk Summit, held from March 6-8, attracted 450 attendees, including over 150 business visitors.
The Bermuda Risk Summit creates long-term business development growth potential, in terms of deal-making opportunities occurring around the event in front of an extremely important June 1/July 1 renewal season for Bermuda’s reinsurance sector. The short-term economic impact, including lodging, transportation, food and beverage, retail, and recreation, was estimated at $1.8 million, and supported 266 jobs. This figure includes approximately 100+ additional visitors who flew to Bermuda for business meetings or ancillary events taking place this week around the Bermuda Risk Summit. Our inaugural event, held March 14-16, 2022, attracted 350 delegates, 80 from overseas, had an economic impact $1 million, and supported around 200 jobs.
David Hart, BDA, CEO said, “The BDA thanks all of the companies and leaders from Bermuda’s globally significant Risk and Insurance Solutions industry for their contributions to our event, but more importantly, for their contributions to Bermuda’s economy as a whole. We especially want to thank all of the overseas visitors that made the journey to attend our event.
