Invitation: Willis Aviation Conference

We are delighted to announce our 2016 conference will be held on 8 – 11 March 2016 at the W Hotel, Sentosa Cove, Singapore. We will be joined by some of the leading figures in the aviation industry, whom along with our Sponsors, we would like to thank in advance for their invaluable support. As well as offering valuable networking opportunities, our programme will cover aviation and insurance market commentary, industry advances in safety and draw on a range of perspectives on ‘new risks’ being faced by the aviation industry.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of the event, we have taken the difficult decision to start charging for attendance at the conference to reduce the pressure on Willis’s own costs, our sponsors’ costs and to enable us to take our conference to the next level in terms of professional organisation and content. We feel strongly that at USD750 per person, the four day programme represents tremendous value especially when compared with other industry conferences.

Please note that conference places are very  limited so we would ask you to register by 15 January 2016 on our registration page. For those who register for our event our new Willis Conference APP will also be made available to you early in the new year.

The W Singapore – Sentosa Cove is offering a conference rate of SGD345++ from March 8 – 11 for conference participants. Simply click the link in the website to facilitate the reservation process.
