Polaris attends BIBA 2023

Over 8,000 attendees from across the UK insurance industry gathered at the Manchester Central Conference Centre on the 11th and 12th May, 2023 for the British Insurance Brokers Association’s annual conference. Among them a team from Polaris at stand C59 engaged with fellow industry members to discuss the benefits of Standards, ProductWriter, imarket and Live-Chat for the build, control and distribution of insurance products.

During the event, Steve Waller, Polaris’ Head of Standards and also chair of BIBA’s Insurance Technology and Innovation Committee, caught up with other committee members to identify how technology can help brokers:

“BIBA’s ITIC has been set up to “connect BIBA at the highest levels both with market trends and developments, and also with the most senior stakeholders externally”. It includes representatives from both the broker community and a wide range of technology providers. Polaris, as an organisation set up with the sole purpose of improving digital trading for the insurance industry, have a natural synergy with BIBA’s aims, so I’m proud to contribute and act as Chair for the ITIC.”

Head of ProductWriter Martin Thornhill says: “BIBA 2023 was great for Polaris, both to make new acquaintances as well as catching up with many of our customers. We get so much from our time at the BIBA conference, that it proves to be an essential event each year”.

Polaris’ Managing Director Vivek Banga, also thought the conference was a success: “For the Polaris team, it was a fantastic BIBA conference, as we got the opportunity both to make new contacts and to meet several of our customers and stakeholders. Our thanks to BIBA for providing this excellent annual platform to network with industry colleagues and showcase our products and services. We look forward to the next year’s conference”.

Polaris thanks BIBA for another successful year and we look forward to attending in 2024. To read more about last year’s visit to BIBA, click here
