"The BDA and Bermuda are extensively committed to supporting and growing the risk management industry here, and participating in the RIMS annual conference is a key part of that. Bermuda continues to work hard to remain at the forefront of commercial trends and drives innovation forward as one of the world's most important insurance and reinsurance hubs."

On a lighter note, the BDA will be bringing Bermuda to the attendees during the "Take a Break in Bermuda" networking event on April 20 at 4:30 p.m. ADT, providing an opportunity to hear from the Premier of Bermuda, the Hon. E. David Burt, JP, MP; Bermuda's Minister of Finance, the Hon. Curtis Dickinson, JP, MP; and BDA CEO Roland Andy Burrows, who will all be speaking from the beautiful Hamilton Princess & Beach Club.

Also from the Hamilton Princess, Jasmine DeSilva and Andrew Holmes, Bermuda brand director for Goslings, will make Bermuda's famous Rum Swizzle cocktail in Sheila Gosling's Maytag vintage washing machine from 1964 - the same appliance Bermuda's late social queen used to prepare drinks in the 1960s. The BDA will also announce the winner of an all-expenses paid trip to Bermuda, including a stay at the Hamilton Princess.
