The conference theme is “One World Without Borders” and will follow the same format as the XL Congress held in Berlin, Germany, in May 2006. The event will use thought-provoking international speakers to critically examine major economic, political and social issues to give delegates a better understanding of the changing face of risk and its evolving impact on the world. The two Congresses, invitation-only events for clients and brokers, are among the commemorative celebrations which XL has held this year to mark its 20th anniversary.
