"Space Activity and Relevant Insurance Implications"

Click to enlarge The 12th International Space Conference on space activities and their relevant Insurance implications was held in Florence on 3rd and 4th April, 2003. Representatives from over 29 countries involved in scientific and commercial operations in Space attended this year's event. Over 300 delegates from the main space agencies, manufacturers of launchers and spacecraft, users, as well as legal and financial firms were present together with representatives from the most important insurance and broking companies.

The speakers involved were over 30 and were divided into panels made up of: Space Agencies & Satellite Operators, Manufacturers, Launch Providers, Legal & Finance, Brokers, Insurers & Reinsurers.

Click to enlargeThe theme of this year's Conference was ´Transparency and Co-operation: Keys essential to success´. The various debates and topics discussed within the panels were greatly supported by the audience. At the end of the two day proceedings, a number of suggestions on how to regenerate confidence in technology and profitability for the Insurers of the Space sector were presented for consideration by all the Space operators.

The overall comments expressed by the audience, speakers and sponsors concurred that the event, which was organised this year by Pagnanelli Risk Solutions Ltd, was a great success!



NotePRS Ltd will endeavour to organise the next Space Insurance Conference which will be held in 2005. The venue will be decided upon in due course; obviously preferences expressed by the attendees in Florence will be taken into consideration.

17th Intenational Space Conference - Hotel Parco dei Principi, Rome, 8, 9, 10 May 2013
“The Impact of Space Weather and Space Exploitation on Modern Society: Hazards’ Forecasting, Prevention, Mitigation and Insurance at International Level”.

Man-made hazards such as space debris, jamming/hacking of signals, cyber terrorism, and their influence on satellites performance, have been discussed at the previous 16 International Space Conferences. These issues and others will continue to be considered and monitored also in this year’s Conference; however, the economic and social impact of ‘Space Weather’ on our modern society, massively dependant on technology and space systems, is attracting more and more attention and concern at various levels for its great and potentially catastrophic effects: this hazard will be the highlight of the 17th International Space Conference.
