The 2017 International Dragon Awards (IDA) Annual Meeting has arrived in Melbourne, Australia with 5,500 insurance specialists from 20 countries unpacking their bags for the five-day meeting based at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC). The international conference is starting today.
IDA will be attended by delegates from China Life, China’s largest insurance group, institutional investor and corporate pension manager, along with companies including Taiwan Life, Allianz, Prudential, Cathay Life and many more.
The Victorian Government has supported the conference which will generate a $24.7 million economic boost for the state. Minister for Tourism and Major Events, John Eren, said the Government is working hard to win an ever larger share of the China market. “China is our number one tourism market for spend, arrivals and growth – and we’re continuing to benefit from the expansion of key Chinese airlines across the business events sector,” he said.
IDA will incorporate an educational knowledge exchange and development program, esteemed awards ceremony attended by the who’s who of the insurance sector and a range of social activities within the city and regional Victoria.
