Insurance telematics in Canada is at a tipping point. With several insurers already launched and many more announcements expected between now and May, the Canadian market is set to go from strength to strength in the next year
(PRWEB) February 09, 2014
With UBI products already on the market, there is no doubt that insurance telematics is here to stay in Canada. A watch and wait strategy is not an option; the Canadian UBI ecosystem will be defined by those insurance carriers, telematics service providers and technology companies that react swiftly.
Insurance Telematics Canada Conference & Exhibition 2014 is the first forum to unite all these key stakeholders to debate key questions surrounding business models, data privacy concerns and critical regulatory issues. The impressive progress of the US market is set to be mirrored in Canada. The figures speak for themselves - the US UBI market is estimated to reach approximately 60 million vehicles by the close of 2019 (Telematics Update - Insurance Telematics Report 2013) and similar exciting progress is expected north of the border. The full agenda and speaker line-up including FSCO, the CAA, RSA Group and Zurich has been announced this week – http://www.telematicsupdate.com/insurance-telematics-canada/conference-agenda.php
Laying the Foundations for Insurance Telematics in Canada
Jack Palmer, Project Director at Telematics Update stated, “Insurance telematics in Canada is at a tipping point. With several insurers already launched and many more announcements expected between now and May, the Canadian market is set to go from strength to strength in the next year”. He added, “In May, through keynote presentations and panels, senior execs will gain priceless insights into how to approach challenges such as data portability and the revenue benefits of offering value added services”.
Insurance Telematics Canada 2014 (May 28-29, Toronto) will become Canada’s largest conference focussed on usage based insurance, following on from the huge successes of Telematics Update’s insurance telematics conferences in Europe and the US.
