As part of Axco Global Insurance Week, you can choose an optional add-on to your conference ticket which allows you to attend either one or both Axco-led masterclasses, taking place on 17 April 2024.

Designed and led by Axco experts, these interactive masterclasses offer deep dive learning opportunities for global insurers. Expect technical detail, robust guidance, and the chance to problem-solve with tutors and peers.
