Stuart Scullion, chairman of AMII, said: "The health and wellbeing landscape is changing.
"With an ageing population and increasing levels of chronic illness, as well as the fact millions of UK households are reliant on their income from employment and have no safety net in place for when they fall ill, the drain on an already stretched NHS is a growing concern.
"Pressure is building all the time in the healthcare sector and we need to act now to make sure we evolve to face new challenges.
"This Summit will be a chance for everyone in the industry to come together to discuss these changes and develop through shared learning.
"We have an outstanding line up of speakers this year, and they will be followed by a panellist debate on health and wellbeing and the implications for health insurance."
