Past, Present, Future - 50 years of Select 74:

Thursday 3/10/2024 - Bristol Hotel, Prince Street, Bristol, BS1 4QF

On Thursday 3rd October 2024, Select 74 will mark our 50th anniversary with a special event in Bristol. Tea and coffee will be provided on arrival at the Bristol Hotel from 1pm, followed by a full afternoon programme of talks on a range of topics including multiple sclerosis, cancer, cystic fibrosis, and much more. Speakers will include medical officers and insurance professionals, with a particular focus on the implications of recent advances in medical science for underwriting and claims. A full agenda will be provided closer to the date.

Following the post talks drinks reception at 6.30pm, a three course dinner will be served. This will include a charity raffle, entertainment, and disco.

Free places available for junior claims and underwriting professionals

We are keen to support the development of staff who have recently begun their claims or underwriting career. As such, Select 74 will be sponsoring two free event tickets for colleagues who have been working in a claims or underwriting role for less than three years. Anyone interested in applying for these places should send the following information to by Wednesday 31st July:

- Name

- Start date in your first claims/underwriting role

- Company you currently work for and line managers name/email

- Why you should be considered for a sponsored place at this event (200 words maximum)

Successful applicants will be chosen by the Select 74 committee based on the strength of their submission and notified no later than Friday 30th August. Please share this opportunity with your junior colleagues who may not be on our mailing list.

An opportunity to reconnect with past colleagues

We would like this event to provide a reunion opportunity for past colleagues who have now retired. We are offering a dinner only ticket option, so that attendees no longer working in the insurance industry can join us in the evening. If you are in contact with any former colleagues who may like to attend this event, please ask them to contact a committee member to arrange purchase of a Dinner only ticket.

Tickets on sale now!

Ticket price £95 includes: tea/coffee, attendance at the afternoon programme of talks, drinks reception, three course dinner and entertainment/disco

Please note that lunch will not be provided, however there are a number of cafes and restaurants close to the venue if you wish to get something to eat before coming to the event.
