The Insurance Tax Convention is one of ABI’s flagship conferences. The Convention is held annually to bring industry experts together to discuss the key tax challenges facing the insurance industry, whilst demonstrating what the ABI, as their trade association, is doing to address these issues. 

The team made the decision to hold the event virtually due to the ever-changing Government guidance around the Covid-19 pandemic and corporate travel policies discouraging travel.

The main logistical challenges the team faced were how they adapted the delivery of a vast amount of in-depth technical content, normally presented in a face-to-face environment, to an online setting.  Additionally, how they managed the 42 speakers delivering the content, all from separate locations and the planning that went along with this as each session needed to be prepared as a separate event, effectively running five events in five days as seamlessly as possible. 

The team met the event objectives by welcoming 234 delegates for the main Convention against a target of 200 and 131 guests also joined the inaugural networking session.
