The 2021 Bermuda Captive Conference will be held virtually on June 14 and 15 under the theme "Resilience."

Conference organizers said the theme reflects the captive insurance industry's response to a year of unprecedented uncertainty since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference will explore how risk managers and major corporations have adapted to the demands the pandemic imposed as well as the changes the pandemic brought to the world.

"This year's theme really spoke to us, as the captive industry has demonstrated real resilience during a period of socio-economic volatility," Conference Chair Leslie Robinson said in a statement. "During last year's event, we heard some incredible stories from captive owners who made huge adjustments operationally in light of the global pandemic and companies providing support to their communities during the pandemic.

"We had over 200 captive owners attend our virtual event in 2020, and we hope to attract even more this year and to demonstrate how they can innovatively tackle new and emerging risks facing all size of business—and to remain resilient in today's rapidly-changing environment," Ms. Robinson said.

Some 900 attendees participated in 2020's virtual Bermuda Captive Conference. Given continued restrictions on global travel and limits on large gatherings, conference organizers decided to present the event virtually again this year.

Organizers said the 2021 conference will feature more content than ever, with new opportunities for attendees to participate in roundtable discussions, schedule meeting with other attendees, and engage in live networking with sponsors.

Registration for the event will be free and will open in the next few weeks. Organizers said they anticipate a record number of captive owners, risk managers, and insurance service providers to attend.
