This makes it even more important for all market participants – from start-ups and InsurTechs to insurance companies – to exchange ideas. With insureNXT digital, we want to offer the necessary platform to promote innovation in the industry,” says Prof. Christian Glasmacher, who is responsible for insureNXT at Koelnmesse.
