WHO SHOULD ATTEND AND WHY
Why should I attend the DXC Connect Insurance Executive Forum?
Reinvigorating our customer communities is one of DXC Technology’s top priorities. Many of our insurance customers have expressed the desire to meet face to face to listen, learn, share business challenges and successes, and work together innovatively to improve business outcomes.

Learn about DXC’s insurance business strategy, along with our plans for DXC software and business process services
Engage with the latest thinking from industry experts

As the largest provider of core insurance software in the world and the global leader of the industry’s digital transformation, DXC Technology is positioned to provide a unique experience you won’t want to miss.
Who will attend the forum?
We have designed this to be an invitation-only, exclusive meeting for top executives at companies using DXC’s software and business process services. The invitees include CXOs, vice presidents and high-level directors from insurers across the region.
How does this forum differ from past DXC or CSC insurance conferences?
Events like this have a long heritage at DXC, and we are excited to bring our community together in person again. In December 2022, DXC hosted a small executive forum for the London Market. For our 2023 event, we look forward to hosting customers across all product lines and throughout the region. The forum is designed to foster connections among an intimate group of insurance leaders. We’ll discuss industry trends, share updates and gather input about how DXC can deliver greater value as we shape our insurance business strategy, along with our plans for DXC software and business process services. We want to listen and learn from you, and work together with you, to support your business success.
What DXC partners are included?
The DXC Partner Ecosystem plays a vital role in the value we deliver for our insurance customers, enabling us to accelerate innovation and deliver services more effectively worldwide. You will be introduced to innovations from DXC and our partners throughout the forum. Our sponsoring partners will be announced soon.
