Focus of the Digital Congress

The central theme of the congress is the identification of future business model structures. We would like to illuminate the inner workings of insurers, brokerage business and industrial customers and derive the NEXT NORMAL in commercial insurance from this. This will be determined by technological and societal changes. Post-Corona, the behavior of customer decision makers will change even more dynamically and move further away from the still very analog structures of brokers and insurers.

How can the "Great Acceleration" conjured up by McKinsey also be triggered in commercial insurance? What drivers are needed? Who are the winners and losers?
