Mega insurance forum to attract 5,000 experts

Macau has been chosen to organise two of the most important events in the Chinese insurance calendar: The 11th Worldwide Chinese Life Insurance Congress and the 2016 Annual International Dragon Conference. Both forums were founded by groups of insurance and financial service professionals more than 15 years ago with the objective of uniting Chinese insurance exponents from all over the world by facilitating a professional, international exchange platform. The announcement was made during the 10th Worldwide Chinese Life Insurance Congress and the 2014 Annual International Dragon Conference (IDA 2014) that took place last week in Xiamen. The two events are expected to attract to Macao more than 5,000 elite Chinese insurance professionals from all over the world, the organisers said. Previous editions of both forums have been held in Mainland China, Australia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong and Malaysia. It will be the second hosting of the event by Macau. In 2001, more than 1,000 Chinese insurance professionals attended the forums.
