Several other themes will be covered within the conference, so as toexpand the range of potential delegates and attract a variety of professionals from diverse insurance fields.

The conference will be attended by major local, regional and international insurance and reinsurance companies, insurance brokers, agents, and loss adjusters, in addition to the participation of both lawyers and insurance experts.

The conference speakers and heads of sessions are among the leading local, regional and international experts, and are specialized in several of the topics to be discussed during the conference. The speakers all represent prominentinternational insurance and reinsurance companies, legal institutions, and supporting industries, as well as pioneering companies within the realm of the topics being discussed.

The Intercontinental Aqaba hotel was selected to be the venue of the conference, due to the uniqueness of its location, as Aqaba is considered one of the most vibrant cities in Jordan. Aqaba’s port lies at the topmost edge of the Red Sea, and is an important economic and touristic city, in addition to being a Special Economic - Duty-Free Zone.

Conference organizers have endeavored to provide several touristic and social programs for participants, by organizing numerous local, regional and international folkloric performances.  Trips will be made available for those wishing to visit the red rose city of Petra, named one of the seven world wonders, in addition to a camping trip to Wadi Rum, which will take place on Thursday 18 April 2019.
