The seventh annual Insurex 2012 Awards returned to Dubai on 9th October 2012, recognising and rewarding excellence and achievement across the region’s insurance industry. Presented by Policy Magazine under the patronage of H. H. Shiekh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the prestigious awards ceremony was judged by an international panel of 13 leading industry experts.
The event formed part of the annual Insurex Conference, now in its ninth year, which attracts senior level decision makers and practitioners from across the insurance industry for a series of Keynote speeches, roundtable discussions and interactive panel sessions discussing the key trends and patterns witnessed in the region.
Shortlisted organisations competed for awards across 17 different categories, including Life Insurer of the Year, Advertising Campaign of the Year, Commercial Lines Broker of the Year, Reinsurer of the Year and General Insurer of the Year.
Each year an Achievement Award of the Year is presented to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the success of the insurance industry.
