Since it first began in 1957, the Rendez-Vous de Septembre (RVS) – the largest gathering in the sector – has enabled all players in the insurance and reinsurance market to meet up and hold bilateral discussions ahead of the renewals.
Last year, all the members of the RVS Association decided to cancel the 2020 conference due to the public health crisis. Many participants said that they understood this decision, while expressing their strong attachment to the RVS, which they view as both useful and necessary.
The pandemic is ongoing, but there is hope that the health crisis will enter its final phase in the second half of 2021, notably due to the vaccination campaigns being rolled out across the world. The return to normal will be gradual, and the various restrictions in terms of movement and assembly should be lifted. But at the present time we cannot predict the exact timing of this “normalization”. Faced with major uncertainties regarding the health situation and various restrictions in terms of movement and assembly in September, all the members of the RVS Association have decided to cancel the 2021 conference. Nevertheless, in the week of September 13 the organizing committee will organize conferences and round tables on the insurance and reinsurance industry.
The next RVS should therefore take place from September 10 to 14, 2022, in Monaco.
Those of you due for refunds will be reimbursed shortly - the organization committee will be in touch.
Claude Tendil, President of the RVS, comments: “The guiding principle behind this decision was above all the safety of the women and men invited to attend the RVS. The professional encounters and the quality of the discussions that take place in Monte Carlo are irreplaceable; we have faith in 2022".
