The Insurance Council Annual Forum 2017 was held on Friday February 17, 2017 at the Hilton Sydney. 

The Forum brought together insurers with industry experts and related professionals to hear about what the year ahead holds for the general insurance industry from a political, regulatory and business perspective. It also provided a forum for discussion to help members clarify the environment in which they operate and how they can meet and turn to their advantage the challenges that face the industry.
