Artemis ILS NYC 2022

Thank you to all of our sponsors and attendees for making ILS NYC 2022 such a successful conference.

More than 200 people attended, making it the largest ILS conference since our last in NYC in 2020. All of the sessions from the conference are now available to watch in video, visit the agenda to watch each session.

Artemis is delighted to be returning to New York City in 2022, for our fifth in-person conference in NYC and the sixth ILS NYC event after last year's was held virtually.

With the industry keen to get back to in-person events and the recovery from the pandemic continuing, we've selected a smaller, still central Midtown venue for our 2022 conference in New York, but the format remains consistent, with a mix of topics up for discussion and plenty of time for networking, all held in a modern, comfortable environment.

For 2022 we are "(Re)setting the scene", discussing the future of the insurance-linked securities (ILS) market as the COVID-19 pandemic abates and the industry adjusts to another year of catastrophe losses.

Add yourself to the waiting list here.

Expect forward-looking discussions between insurance-linked securities (ILS) industry experts, delivering the quality of content you've learned to anticipate from us at Artemis.

With our events, we try to create the kind of conference that we would want to attend ourselves, mixing great speakers, insightful content, a forward-thinking outlook and quality networking.
