Lutfi is the Secretary-General of the Emirates Insurance Association and the Gulf Insurance Federation.

Lutfi will speak in the session “Insurance companies and body shops”, which will focus on the opportunities and remaining barriers in a time when digitisation, low touch, remote claims processes, self-serve apps, AI and more are bringing a new level of trust, transparency, automation, and a prerequisite for everyone in the industry to collaborate with each other.
“As one of the most pioneering and respected leaders in our industry, it will be an honour and a pleasure to share the IBIS stage with Mr Fareed,” said IBIS Moderator Robert Snook. “The audience will warmly welcome his invaluable insights on how we can collaborate better to implement sustainable strategies for success in order to achieve our shared goal – to provide a world class customer experience.”
Under the 2023 theme “Sustainable Strategies for Success”, IBIS Middle East 2023 will seek answers to key questions about the present and future of the collision repair industry, emphasising approaches that can secure sustainable solutions to challenges encountered along the way.
