[World Captive Forum](http://conferences.businessinsurance.com/conference/world-captive-forum/2016) is one of the longest running international captive insurance conferences in the world. Organisers say the conference’s longevity is a testament to the quality of its high-calibre, exclusive audience, educational content, superior industry expertise and distinctive networking and marketing opportunities available to attendees.
