The Onshore Energy Conference Dubai brings together insurance professionals from across the oil, petrochemical and power sectors as the stand out business and technical conference.

With the MENA region in particular facing many challenging and conflicting issues which directly impact insurance, this conference is aimed at addressing some of them as the region seeks to continue to establish itself as a centre of insurance excellence.

The theme for this year’s event is “Considering a different landscape” and on the 25 April (12:15pm – 12:45pm), Thornton Tomasetti’s Kyle Krall and Phillip Thompson will be speaking on ‘What does 2020 mean for the MENA Region?’.

The presentation aims to begin the process of preparation for a milestone year. Change for insurance professionals is swift and speed of technology integration for business begs the question – What is coming in terms of changes that will rewrite how we adapt existing business models to new challenges?
