Connecticut climate & innovation events merged

The Connecticut Insurance Department (CID) and Connecticut Insurance & Financial Services (CT IFS) are combining their signature events, the Connecticut Conference on Climate Change and Insurance (C4I) and the Insurance Capital Summit (ICS), to address the critical issues of climate risk and innovation in the insurance industry. 

This collaborative event, called “Insuring the Future”, will take place on September 10, 2024, at The Bushnell in Hartford, Connecticut, running from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM, with a comprehensive program followed by a reception.

The C4i is an annual event hosted by the CID. C4i invites environmental and climate change experts, insurance industry leaders, government officials, and policymakers from around the world to converge and discuss strategies for combating the climate crisis and improving resilience through insurance-related solutions.

“Through 'Insuring the Future,' we aim to drive forward the crucial dialogue on climate risks and foster innovation in the insurance industry to build more resilient communities,” said Commissioner Andrew Mais, Connecticut Insurance Department. “This event underscores our commitment to safeguarding the future through collaborative efforts and advanced solutions.”

Hosted by CT IFS in Hartford, the ICS gathers over 350 insurance leaders, innovators, and professionals each year. This event offers opportunities to learn, network, and engage with experts on the forefront of insurance practice and innovation on a global scale. Attendees experience thought leadership and insights from top industry change agents.

"The Insurance Capital Summit represents a nexus of innovation and expertise, where industry leaders convene to chart the course for the future of insurance. We are thrilled to join forces with CID in this endeavour," said Susan Winkler, vice president and executive director, Connecticut Insurance & Financial Services

The CT IFS is an initiative of the MetroHartford Alliance (MHA), which collaborates with investors and partners to elevate the Hartford Region through economic development, community convening around shared challenges, and local chamber support.
