insureNXT digital celebrates premiere on April 21 and 22

The insurance industry is facing its biggest challenge yet: digitization, changes in media usage and customer expectations are calling previous structures and existing business models into question. Innovations are in demand, digital transformation is required. The new insureNXT digital brings together traditional insurers, start-ups and partners from other industries on its platform to address the three driving key factors of the necessary digital transformation of the insurance industry: customer centricity, modern technologies and digital ecosystems. From exciting keynotes and panels on the Center Stage to new products, services and business models in the Trend Zone, the high-caliber conference program with 150 top speakers offers a preview of the development of new solutions, ecosystems and business models. Participants also have the opportunity to exchange ideas and network with the community at any time via video and chat functions. With protected digital meeting rooms and virtual cafés, there is a networking tool for everyone.


Three main stages: Center Stage, Trend Zone and Demo Arena


On the first day of insureNXT digital, prominent speakers such as Peter Bauer (ottonova), Dr. Patrick Dahmen (HDI), Beate Heinisch (Axa), Mark Klein (Ergo), Donald Lacey (Ping An), Monika Schulze (Zurich), Julian Teicke (wefox) and Frank Thelen (Freigeist) will discuss innovations and trends in the insurance industry in keynotes and panels. In the Demo Arena on April 21, nearly 30 companies will pitch on topics such as customer centricity, artificial intelligence, mobility, health and the Internet of Things. New products, services and business models will be presented in the Trend Zone.


On the second day of insureNXT digital, InsurLab Germany will be hosting this year’s Accelerator Selection Competition on the insureNXT digital platform.

There, a total of 25 pre-selected start-ups in two categories (Start and Growth) will face a jury of five experts as well as member companies of InsurLab Germany and the trade visitors and investors attending insureNXT digital. The subsequently final selected start-ups will participate in InsurLab Germany’s Accelerator Program Batch#21, which promises the winners extensive funding.


On both days, insureNXT digital will also offer a Career Day, where young talents can exchange ideas with leading universities and industry experts on digital transformation.


“After long months of planning, we are delighted to finally celebrate the premiere of insureNXT digital next week. With its possibilities, our innovative platform offers the perfect setting to exchange ideas about innovations in the insurance industry,” says Gerald Böse, CEO of Koelnmesse.
