Every year in May when the temperatures start to rise, grass turns a shade greener and the birds start coming out for a song or two the UK insurance community decides the timing is perfect to gather under the roof of the Manchester Central for the annual BIBA Conference. Deals are brokered, new contacts are made and not less importantly – some fun is had.

This year, Insly focused on its brand new Direct to Customer sales solution CloudSales and gave the opportunity for forward-thinking insurance enthusiasts to try it out for themselves using a tablet or their personal mobile phone

Since BIBA is a massive conference and talking nothing but shop all day is tiring, we decided to keep with the Insly tradition of providing some light entertainment in a simple, „low-tech“ fashion. The aim of the Insly Gin Game was to sort 10 miniature bottles of gin on the right shelf based on price range as fast as possible and judging by the number of players we are happy to say that the Gin Game will take an honorable place among our Phone Game and Insurance Movie Game. Be sure to check back next year for something new!

We were extremely happy that so many of our clients were able to come by our stand and do some co-networking with us. Much to our delight, some of them also took up the opportunity and used our stand as their temporary BIBA HQ.
