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”.

CEOs are invited to bring an additional member to the event this year, either from your Board or executive team. Additional guests are also able to bring partners.

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 special 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 our members and guests to meet, eat and relax, and enjoy each other’s company as conversations flow around the table.

The conference begins with a full day of presentations, debates and conversation featuring a handpicked selection of international experts. The day will open with an opening address from the Deputy Greek Health Minister, Mr Kontozamanis, who will set out the vision of how Greece will re-invent and learn from events of the past year and a half.

The agenda will feature distinguished speakers including Prof Ateev Mehrotra, Associate Professor of Health Care Policy and member of the academic staff at Harvard Medical School who will 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, founding CEO of the UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) will share his views on the future of the relationship between the life sciences industry and health payers.

The evening will take us to the relaxing harbourside venue of Blue Fish 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 impact our businesses.

We will continue with an energising mix of debates and presentations from experts, covering areas regularly at the top of CEOs’ list of concerns as we enter a phase ripe for re-invention.

Sarah K Emond, COO of USA’s Institute for Clinical Effectiveness Review, will share the impact of the last few years on the pricing of drugs and how at ICER they have developed a Value Assessment Framework, that helps patients, doctors, and others in the health care system know the value that is achieved for known outcomes.

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

There is no official programme for this day, but all members are encouraged 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.
  • If you require additional rooms before or after the conference please check these boxes on the registration form, these are at the same rate as our iFHP rate. Singles are €400 plus tax at 13.5% and double occupancy is €445 plus tax at 13.5%
  • When does the conference commence? We will start the event on Tuesday 19th with a guest speaker, drinks and dinner at the Four Seasons. This will be at 17.00 on the Tuesday so please arrive with time to join for this enjoyable session. Registration will be during the afternoon of the 19th.
  • 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. This forms a key part of the programme. and We have therefore included hotel  accommodation as part of the conference rate on this evening to allow for departures the following day Friday 21st

TRAVEL & COVID
  • What if I need to cancel? We understand that Covid Pandemic has imposed severe restrictions on travel, with testing, quarantine and flight cancellations. We have planned the 2021 CEP Forum to take place in late October to maximise the opportunity for us all to meet.
  • We are able to offer substitutions at any time for the event.
  • Currently all passengers entering Greece need to complete a passenger locator form (PLF). These must be submitted in advance of travel to the Greek authorities. A unique QR code will be sent to you the day prior to travel at midnight Greek time. Please refer to this link for advice and help with entering Greece. At the time of writing (March) a negative PCR test is also required.
  • Travellers are responsible for checking requirements for entry to Greece from their point of origin and complying with all the medical checks, if needed and any pre-or post-testing if required.
  • iFHP does not take financial responsibility for costs incurred for changes or cancellations to flights, additional hotel or quarantine accommodation for members or their travelling party.
  • Should the event be cancelled due to Greek Law as declared by the Hellenic Republic then iFHP will refund delegates for the costs of the conference as set out in the registration form but not held liable for travel costs or any associated costs with the event outside of the scope of the meeting 19th – 21st October
