We are delighted to announce that Registration is now open for the Risk Management Forum 2013 organised by the Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA). The Forum will take place in Maastricht, The Netherlands from 29 September to 02 October 2013 and is open to all risk and insurance professionals.


FERMA represents 22 national risk management associations from 20 European countries. The Forum is the largest pan-European risk management event. It brings together more than 1500 risk and insurance practitioners. 


The President of FERMA, Jorge Luzzi, said: "The theme of our Forum this year is living and working in a riskier world. We are designing the programme to help risk managers INSPIRE, EDUCATE AND INFLUENCE! A key objective is to ensure that risk and insurance managers are well informed to manage risks as they evolve in our challenging and fast moving world. That way they can make informed decisions now and in the future."
