25th Lillehammer Energy Claims Conference
In-person event

Since its modest beginning in 1996 with just over 100 attendees, the Lillehammer Energy Claims Conference had steadily grown to become the premier energy insurance market conference.

Peaking at 350 attendees at its 20th anniversary in 2015, we were about to celebrate the conference’s 25th anniversary in early March 2020 when Covid-19 threw a spanner in the works and caused us to cancel the event as attendees were about to commence on their travels to Norway and Lillehammer.

The current scenario
The impact of the pandemic and geopolitical events during the period since February/March 2020 have caused changes in many parts of the world, the global trade patterns, communication, etc. For our modern societies and trade, energy is a basic need and the latest developments have raised significant concerns about fragility in the supply of energy. Like financing, insurance is an enabler to develop and maintain a stable supply of energy to the world.

Agenda
The agenda for the LECC 2023 conference will include a look back at the 24 (now 27) years since 1996, the status quo of the energy supply and demand, and finally, as usual, look into where the industry is heading for a sustainable energy transition in the global strive to prevent the world from boiling over.

In-person
Equally to the professional take-aways from the conference, the relaxed venue is renowned for its excellent atmosphere for networking across the business categories of attending professionals. Digital meetings are excellent for information sharing and basic training courses, however, have a long way to go to replace in-person meetings and communication.

Departures from Scandic Hafjell Hotel

The conference is the leading international gathering of underwriters, claims adjusters, insureds, brokers and other service providers involved in claims arising from activities which are commonly referred to as offshore energy risks (which extend to related onshore activities and include well and drilling operations irrespective of location).

For over five years the conference has attracted capacity attendances - some 345 delegates in 2015 for the 20th Anniversary Conference. In recent years participants from America, Angola, Australia, Bermuda, Canada, Denmark, Dubai, France, Germany, Indonesia, Jordan, Malaysia, Mexico, Monaco, The Netherlands, Norway, Qatar, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.K., Venezuela, Vietnam and elsewhere, have clearly justify the conference’s claim to be the premier international energy claims forum.

Attendance at the Conference is, in general, restricted to representatives of underwriters, claims adjusters, insureds, claims brokers and other service providers directly involved in claims arising from offshore energy risks.

The Conference is not open to members of the legal professions although the Committee will usually issue a very limited number of specific invitations to lawyers closely involved with subjects under discussion. To encourage an atmosphere of open debate and participation, opinions expressed at the event are considered personal to the speakers and members of the media are excluded.

Delegates are always encouraged though Q&A and commentary sessions to play an active part in the Conferences’ interactive programmes.
