As the industry gears up for its busiest period of the year, three big topics have emerged to define the travel insurance sector in 2023: elevated levels of demand for insurance, increased economic and geopolitical volatility, and higher customer expectations.
These were three key insights from Allianz’s Global Travel Summit, held recently in Paris. The overarching theme for this year’s two-day hybrid event was “Uncharted”, reflecting the emerging opportunities and uncertainties that face the sector, and Allianz Partners’ own growth and expansion. The summit gathered more than 200 in-person and 1500 virtual Allianz attendees from across five continents. It also featured leaders from the travel industry and beyond – including Jeff Rosenblum, CEO of ad agency Questus and WSJ-bestselling author, and Tyler Brûlé, Chairman and Editorial Director of Monocle.
