Roll up roll up, all you insurance, reinsurance and insurance-linked securities (ILS) Twitter tweeps, we are going to have an industry tweet-up on February 25th in New York. We are looking at the Shakespeare, (24 E 39th St, New York, NY 10016).
I know our industry is not the most advanced in social media, but there are more than a few of us out there working on how to do this sensibly – and we are trying to gather some of the stateside people for an event.
Who’s who in reinsurance, insurance and ILS twitter circles?
Some of names behind the big names will come along – @ambest @swissre @munichreamerica @willisgroup all have excellent people behind the brands. I’d love to meet the team behind @zurichNAnews – they have been blazing a trail for a while @guycarpenter are doing well too as are @xlcatlin and it would be nice to see who drives the machines.
We are hoping, as always for a few journalists to come along and boost the numbers. I know @fiona_InsiderTR is in town for Simfa (as are we) as is @artemisbm’s @steve_e @insurancemunro. We will work on a few others.
Also in attendance will be some individuals that have been doing well @thepeav @theriskman @tjohansmeyer @michealiancoles. And a special invite has gone out to our celebrity #ils superstar, @catbondcat who has said he/she will come along – we will put out a bowl of cream.
Please spread the word – we will be waiting for you.
