2022 Florida Chamber Annual Insurance Summit

December 5, 2022 - December 7, 2022

It’s time to insure Florida’s future- the right way. Under the Governor’s leadership, the legislature took important steps earlier this summer to tackle runaway litigation and the root causes driving up property insurance rates, but it is clear more must be done. Join members of Florida’s business community, insurance professionals, industry leaders and elected officials for interactive discussions on the future of the insurance market.

Attendees will hear from industry leaders and government officials on the state of insurance in Florida and the solutions we must unite behind to reach the Florida 2030 Blueprint goal of actuarily sound property insurance rates based on actual risk and competition. From panels and discussions on the CAT Fund, PIP Repeal and the Surfside collapse to other emerging issues facing insurers, business leaders and consumers, the Florida Chamber’s Insurance Summit is the premier platform uniting Florida’s top leaders on insurance reform and solutions to keep Florida moving forward.
