Each day also included sessions covering topics such as DB (defined benefit) and DC (defined contribution) schemes, benefits and HR, and technology. Pensions Minister Baroness Ros Altmann addressed the event via a video keynote and a £-Billion Pound Pension Scheme Lunch offered exclusive high-level networking opportunities.
Professional Pensions provided in-depth coverage by posting a 30 articles and seven videos on the Professional Pensions website.
In an exciting move revealed at the event, Professional Pensions launched a dedicated video site, Professional Pensions TV. This will be a library for pensions-related video. The site was launched in partnership with the organisation responsible for Asset TV. It is already hosting dozens of videos produced by Professional Pensions over the past year, as well as sponsored videos from the Asset TV archive.
The closing speaker was Lord Michael Dobbs, novelist, creator of Netflix sensation House of Cards and the Harry Jones thrillers, Member of House of Lords and former adviser to Margaret Thatcher and John Major.
Alan Pickering, Chairman, BESTrustees, said: “It was an honour to be involved in such a well-organised event.”
Andrew Leach, Director, Fleet Evolution, added that the event was “just the right balance between enough ‘substance’ to attract delegates yet still leave enough time for the exhibitors to get their opportunity to meet the visitors”.
