Our Event-Highlights

Topic Day Sustainability – 16. February 2021

The current dominant topic in the press is sustainability. But the topic is also almost omnipresent in the specialist and management areas of insurance companies. New regulations such as the EU Taxonomy Regulation to the customer demand of the sustainable insurer are driving the topic. Investment requirements that have to be implemented at short notice and the lack of conventions and best practices do not make the issue any easier. And: What significance do innovations have in the environment of sustainability?

Reason enough for a symposium on the topic of sustainability. We are looking forward to outstanding speakers and exciting examples as well as approaches to solutions. In addition to insurers, we are also inviting startups and service providers as solution providers. In this way, the participants and exhibitors of the Topic Day can exchange ideas and get to know each other during the congress, but also at the Expo.

Topic Day Virtual Assistant (Voicebot & Co.) – 10. March 2021

Virtual agents – it sounds like a science fiction flick, a bit like the Matrix or Terminator. Virtual agents or assistants, on the other hand, are very real. They are an essential part of tomorrow’s business organization, which is undergoing massive change against the backdrop of customer demands (24/7 availability) and demographic change (availability of employees) as well as multi-channel requirements. Virtual agents are thus pioneers of digital transformation – and much more broadly applicable than is often perceived.

That’s why we say: GO FOR IT! Take a look at the developments of Voice Bots & Co, which we will present to you at the Topic Day in InsurLab Germany. Our young companies will show what is already possible today – and since we are gathering several providers on site, a discussion with experts from different perspectives is also possible – with technology proponents and experienced, interested and possibly also skeptics. It will be exciting!
