About the Baden-Baden Reinsurance Meeting

The Baden-Baden Reinsurance Meeting is one of the most important events in the reinsurance calendar and is attended by reinsurers, underwriters, brokers and industry experts from around the world.

The meeting provides an opportunity for cedants, brokers and re/insurers to get together to discuss the renewal of reinsurance contracts prior to the major renewals season in January.

The Baden-Baden Reinsurance Meeting was originally the annual “German Marine Conference” for many years, until 1978. From 1979 onwards, this event was no longer held in Baden-Baden, but the reinsurers, insurers and brokers continued to meet in Baden-Baden every year in the last week of October.

Since then, the Colonia Group and later AXA Cessions published a list of participants from insurers and reinsurers. In 1995, The Review and Compre Group began its efforts to compile a list of all other participants in the annual meeting, as well as a journal of helpful telephone numbers. In 2001, the two lists were merged into one.

Subsequently, Insurance Day partnered with the Baden-Baden City Council to form a Host Committee dedicated to protecting the annual Baden-Baden Reinsurance Meeting. This is supported by industry representatives from the reinsurance and insurance sectors. As Baden-Baden Tourism Board, we have since created the platform for the Baden-Baden Reinsurance Meeting and manage the registration process as well as the online meeting directory. Together with our partners, we also offer further services, such as opening the Congress House for participants, information and support as well as tourist services.

From its early beginnings, decades ago, the Baden-Baden Congress has grown into a major global reinsurance event. Every year, more than 2,000 participants take advantage of the registration on this page, so join us this year.
