BIBA 2020 – The year that never was…

Events and Exhibitions, Latest News

April 2, 2020

So, here we are in May, the kick-off month for the renowned BIBA Conference – when the insurance market starts to get super excited about attending the Conference in Manchester.

Plans are all in place, meetings are being booked, and the social agenda is well underway. But, 2020 is different. No planning. No stands being built. And certainly no talk about the number of parties!

But, life goes on – everyone is working hard to stay in touch and still share and communicate with the market. Content, film and social media is all powering away as hard as ever – helping the market and customers alike to manage their way through these times.

We hope all our clients and the market are keeping safe during this time, we know so many are suffering – it’s certainly a difficult period for everyone. We’ve taken the time that would’ve been spent preparing for the event, to reflect on what we’ll miss the most.

Our Account Director, Eric Sanchez, commented:

“I’ll certainly miss the opportunity to support our clients, and be able to see their smiling faces once their stand designs come to life. BIBA is a network opportunity that will be missed by many, but after all it’s more important that we all stay safe and stay at home. The industry is evolving and more networking opportunities will present themselves again soon, whether it’s in person or virtually. It’s a shame we can’t see the market come together, but we’re ready more than ever for BIBA 2021! Stay safe.”

For those that have had to go ‘cold turkey’ on BIBA for this year – take comfort, it will be back in 2021.But, if that isn’t enough for you – watch our film of the highlights from BIBA 2019 and enjoy!
