London based Clarion Events, one of the world’s leading independent event organisers, has announced it has acquired the Digital Insurance Agenda (DIA), the leading European event series serving the rapidly growing insurtech market. The addition of DIA further enhances Clarion’s portfolio of events and digital platforms within the insurance market.
In 2019 Clarion acquired InsureTech Connect (ITC), and has welcomed over 30,000 insurtech, insurance and investment leaders from 100+ countries to Las Vegas, and successfully launched the brand into Asia earlier this month.
