Congress Theme

The goal of the RIAD Congress 2017 is to offer delegates a unique opportunity to identify the core issues and necessary steps to keep pace with progress in the field of legal protection. One aspect of this will be to understand how behavioural economics of consumers have transformed and how this impacts our businesses. Delegates will discover opportunities and how digitalization, in particular InsurTech, can lead ways to reshape insurance. 


We see that the world around us has been changing in many ways. Changes have mostly been driven by digitalization, globalization, and by new ways of delivering as well as consuming goods and services. Consumers, our customers, and business partners behave differently today than five or even only two years ago. What are their needs? What do they expect from us? And what is necessary to connect with them? Delegates have the opportunity to explore shortcomings as well as strengths of legal protection insurance, look at its potential in view of consumer needs and expectations, and discuss how to connect and communicate with today’s customers and business partners. They will experience how their own expectations and unconscious bias restrict them, stand in the way of exploring opportunities, and prevent them from finding unorthodox solutions.


We have to change if we want to remain relevant! The goal of the congress is to formulate the relevant questions which show us the way to change. Join the RIAD Congress to find out how!



“Millennials will not accept the traditional way of selling. They will not want an agent to come to their living room to explain insurance. They will want to do that on their computer or smart phone. Getting this right over the next 12-24 months will determine a firm’s future success”


- Dr. Andreas Freiling, EMEIA Insurance Leader, Ernst & Young LLP
