New York Global Insurance Forum

Consistent with the IIS repositioning and increase of services, the IIS Annual Seminar has been rebranded as the Global Insurance Forum, a designation which aligns with the growing stature of the event and IIS strategic objectives. The Forum builds on the 50 year seminar tradition of excellence.
