Life Insurance International (LII) is to be a media partner for Rendez-Vous Riviera, a new conference and networking event for life and accident and health insurers and reinsurers.

Rendez-Vous Riviera will be held at the Hotel Hyatt Regency in Nice from 13-15 September. Approximately 300-350 attendees are expected to attend the event.

The event will feature workshops and conferences provided by high-level speakers to cover domestic and international interest.

Among the speakers at the event will include Jacques Richier, chairman and CEO of Allianz France, Franck Pinette, CEO European life business at Guy Carpenter & Company and Claude Chevre, member of the executive board, life and health at Hannover Re

The Rendez Vous Riviera will be held at the same times as the annual reinsurance conference, Les Rendez-Vous de Septembre, in Monaco.

Patrick Peugeot, honorary president of the Rendez-Vous Riviera 2015 said: "Over the last 20 years, reinsurance market growth increased by over 500% while the outward reinsurance rate has also substantially evolved especially in the USA where bank insurance and mutual companies continue to transfer their risks to reinsurers while focusing their activities around distribution.

Under these circumstances, a convention, such as Les Rendez-Vous Riviera, international and specifically dedicated to Life and A&H insurance and reinsurance activities, offers directors and managers a unique opportunity to value their business and innovations, as well as sharing experiences in order to build and consolidate profitable encounters."
