Events timeline
conference schedule

We are excited to resume our programme of conferences in Athens, Greece. Although our location is the seat of ancient learning and medicine, we will be examining the issues through a modern lens, looking at the current issues and what innovation should or could bring. We will be charting the spectrum of what the future holds for health insurers in our programme: “Charting the Path from Resilience to Re-invention”.

Facilitating the event will be Sneh Khemka, who brings both his expertise in health and talents in navigating the global tasks ahead to re-imagine the future. Sneh is currently CEO of Simply Health and is a specialist advisor to the healthcare division of the World Economic Forum (WEF).

CEOs are invited to bring one other C-suite leader or board member to attend the Forum. Each CEO and additional invited member can bring partners. Partners are welcome to attend the dinners each night.

To join us for the CEO Forum register here.

We will welcome all our guests with drinks al fresco at the Four Seasons Astir Place at 18.00, with a guest speaker from the Greek Government to kick off the official event before dinner.

All guests and partners are welcome to attend the dinner which will enable all our members and guests to finally meet, eat and relax to enjoy the company of each other and the conversations around the table.

The conference will be a full day of presentations, debates and conversation from esteemed international experts. The day will open with an opening address from the Deputy Greek Health Minister, Mr Kontozamanis, to set out the vision of how Greece will re-invent and learn from the past year.

The day will feature distinguished speakers including Prof Ateev Mehrotra from Harvard Medical School and Associate Professor of Health Care Policy to share his expertise on one of the key issues for re-invention – the future of tele-health and remote care.

From Europe, Sir Andrew Dillon CBE, and founding CEO of NICE in the UK to share his views on the future of healthcare and drugs and the impact on insurers

The evening will take us to the relaxing harbourside venue of Blue Fish, near the hotel for an evening of traditional Greek food and drink.

The second full day of the conference will encourage all members to reflect on the views and challenges shared in the first day and share how this could or should impact our businesses.

We will continue with an energetic mix of debates, presentations from experts including Sarah Emond from ICER in the USA, to cover areas which we know are top of CEO’s concerns as we enter a phase ripe for re-invention.

The final evening will be hosted at Hytra Restaurant in central Athens and will recognise key members of iFHP and past members in this special “Recognition Dinner” open to all guests and partners.

There is no official programme for this day but all members are encourage to use this morning to maximise the time we have together and spend the final hours with each over breakfast and to reflect on the past few days.

HOTEL
  • Where is the hotel located? The Astir Palace Four Seasons is located along the coast on a peninsular region called Vouligmeni. It is, depending on traffic, forty-five mins from central Athens and the historic monuments. It benefits from the peaceful coastal location, with the benefits of seclusion but with good access to the city.
  • What is the best way to reach the hotel from the airport? We have arranged transfers for each of our guests to the hotel upon arrival. This is included in the conference price.
CONFERENCE
  • What is included in the conference fee? This year we have included the conference bedroom nights within your conference fee. The reason for this is ease for our members and less administration when you check out. We have included the Tuesday 19th, Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st in the fee. This also include breakfast, Wi-Fi and taxes.
  • When can I check in? Standard check in time is 15.00 on day of arrival and check out is 11.00am on day of departure.

  • How long is the conference? We wish to maximise the time we can spend together after a long break due to COVID-19. The conference programme will run Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st October from 08.30 until approximately 17.00 each day.
  • When will the conference finish? There will be a special “recognition” dinner for all guests on Thursday 21st at a central Athens restaurant.
