About The Organisers

Asia Insurance Review

Asia Insurance Review (AIR) was launched in January 1991 to meet the information needs of insurance practitioners in Asia. After 27 years of dedicated service to the region’s insurance industry, AIR is the premier publication trusted by leaders and key decision makers.

As part of AIR’s conscious attempts to promote the industry’s move towards higher standards and greater professionalism, over the years we have launched the Asia Insurance Industry Awards, the Australia and New Zealand Insurance Industry Awards, and the Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards, to recognise and salute excellence.

AIR is the official media partner of leading industry events in Asia, including the East Asian Insurance Congress (EAIC), the Pacific Insurance Conference (PIC), and the Singapore International Reinsurance Conference (SIRC), and is the Permanent Observer of the ASEAN Insurance Congress.
