Conference 2019

The premier event for risk management and insurance professionals, our Conference aims to empower delegates to better deliver outstanding service to their organisations.

The 2019 ALARM Conference returned to the University of Manchester from 23 to 25 June. 

For many years the worker bee has represented Manchester's community spirit and hive of activity, and more recently used as a symbol of unity and resilience. This year's Conference drew inspiration from this and celebrated risk and insurance professionals Working Together through times of austerity, in the face of challenge and periods of great change. 

Our Risk Awards dinner took place on Monday 24 June, hosted by Alex Crow – a professional mentalist. View the finalists and winners.
