Two insurers and a re-insurer will each in turn give their view of the market and the renewal conditions.

This will be followed by two break-out sessions, moderated by Norbert Dietkiewicz and Sabine Desantoine, allowing risk managers to debate among themselves.

Finally a general discussion will close this exchange.

Timing: 12h00 - 15h00 - Sandwich lunch is provided.




It is now widely recognised by most boards and risk management and IT security professionals that it is not a question of if, but when a cyber attack will occur.

Increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks can catch even well-governed organisations off-guard, exposing them and their customers to possible identity theft and fraud, and threatening the organisation’s reputation, customer base and revenue.

The cyber risk landscape is constantly evolving, and the threats have gone much further than putting just a company’s data at risk. Business interruption and associated reputational concerns have never been voiced by organisations as much as they are now, but still we know awareness remains an issue and companies are still being far too reactive in their protocols.

In collaboration with AGFA-GEVAERT, BELRIM organises this exchange on Intellectual Property Rights issues & solutions.

About the Exchange 

What is intellectual property (IP)? 
Intellectual property refers to “creations of the mind: inventions, literary and artistic works, and symbols, names, images and designs used in commerce”.
It is “divided into two categories: Industrial property, which includes inventions (patents), trademarks, industrial designs, and geographic indications of source; and Copyright, which includes literary and artistic works.” (Source: World Intellectual Property Organisation)

Intellectual property (IP) is one of the most valuable company assets. In today’s business world, protecting those assets against third party infringement can be both complex and expensive. 
The same is true when it comes to protecting yourself against claims from others that you have infringed upon their patents, trademarks or other creations.
Intellectual property insurance could be a smart way of protecting these valuable assets.

  • How to improve visibility on the risk exposures of your company's IP?
  • What is the underwriting and claim cycle?

Through the feedback of its speakers, the ambition of this exchange will be to provide valuable insights into this specific topic:
Speakers :

  • Hans Strijckers, Intellectual Property Manager at Agfa-Gevaert
  • Marie L’Affeter-Gebert, Directrice Souscription IP - France, Tokio Marine HCC
  • Frank Ruttens, Business Unit Manager at Agfa Labs

Presentations and slides will be in English

Legal and technological developments have contributed to the increased use of unmanned (aerial) vehicles by companies for commercial or own use.  Whereas these developments create opportunities, they also represent risks.

BELRIM and Vanbreda Risk & benefits are therefore delighted to organize for their members and clients an exchange on this topic. The Exchange is hosted by DronePort in St-Truiden.

In collaboration with AGCS, BELRIM organises this exchange on Supply Chain issues.

The globalization of trade and the quest for greater competitiveness have been accompanied by an increase in the complexity and fragility of the supply chain.
By pushing the boundaries, by multiplying the actors involved, our sourcing and distribution models expose the company to new risks that go far beyond operating losses. These risks become extremely difficult to evaluate and quantify.

How to know your supply chain?

How to improve visibility on the risk exposures of the supply chain?

How to identify and evaluate them?

What tools and methodologies can we use to improve risk resilience?

Are there insurance solutions?

Through the feedback of its speakers, the ambition of this exchange will be to provide concrete answers to the Risk Managers’ questions on one of the main risks of the company.

Speakers :             Georgi Pachov, Global Practice Leader, Cyber & BI, AGCS. 

                              Alexandra Pfalzgraf -  VP Insurance & Risk Management – Schneider Electric

                              Laurent Giordani -  Associé fondateur – Kyu Associés (cabinet de conseil en Management)

Presentations will be in English and French - Slides will be in English


Career Development and Career Promotion moderated by Hudson (Katia Van Bel and Zorana Gligoric)

It is always a good idea to stop and think about one's career.

Hudson will run through the various steps on how to promote yourself internally and externally and get the best out of your career.

A small survey will help them make the event tailored to your needs. REGISTER before 08/03/2019 and scroll down to find the questions.

These are meant to give us (and you) the opportunity to better know our audience, to understand the questions and thoughts you are currently having on your professional status, ambition and satisfaction. Using your responses, we will try and provide you with answers, topics and consulting on the subjects that come the most often. Hence, we will not treat this questionnaire on an individual basis, but rather group the answers (when possible) to see what are the most important trends/thoughts in this working group.

We thank you in advance for your participation (which is of course completely voluntary)!

Hudson Team

Looking forward to seeing you all!

WHEN: 26 MARCH 2019 - 12h00 - 14h30 (sandwich lunch included)

WHERE: PROXIMUS - Carlistraat 2 - 1140 Brussel/Evere
