Organised by the Financial Services Knowledge Transfer Network (FS KTN) and the Natural Research Environment Council (NERC), the Insurance Model & Data Exposé (IMDE) 2013 is the first UK event of its kind to offer a solution.

The IMDE will give insurers, reinsurers, government, research and academic stakeholders the opportunity to access over 34 exhibitors with models and data on a range of risks including natural catastrophes and political risks.

“We have assembled a range of suppliers from Europe and the US, who can add real value to (re)insurers from the Lloyd’s and the London market, ” says FS KTN director Dickie Whitaker.

In addition to the wide range of data providers present there will also be workshops on subjects ranging from use of satellite data – from companies such as NASA, ESA and ImageCat Ltd – to new data visualisation techniques from RMA/NTT Data Services and Virtalis/Geovisionary.

“We are moving from a world where all models and data come through limited sources, to one where diverse platforms and suppliers allow for the insurance industry to source data from a broad range of global suppliers, ” says Whitaker.

“Our industry is becoming more demanding of new and transparent models and data. We are seeing a large number of new companies spring up with fantastic new offerings in model supply and visualisation techniques, ” he continued.

“For that we need a shop window and we believe the IMDE 2013 is a first for meeting and seeing the offerings of these organisations in one place.”

The event will be held on 9 July 2013 from 8:45am to 5:30pm at the Mermaid Conference Centre, Blackfriars London.
