Risk Management Conference on Sporting Equipment and International Sport Governing Bodies, organised by the AISTS and KESSLER, Marsh ANd AXA XL.
As technology and innovation continues to have an ever so significant role in every aspect of sport, a higher standard of quality and safety for athletes, fans and the media have become even more important. Sporting equipment manufacturers continue to play at the edge of the rules and regulations that are set, constantly trying to make products stronger, lighter and smarter. International Sports Federations, however, need to enforce their rules and regulations so as to maintain the tradition of their sport, ensure performance fair-play and safety while allowing for innovation to continue to develop their sport. This seminar will shed light on the topic of sporting equipment technology for sport governing bodies and provide information on how to mitigate risks for all stakeholders involved. Viewpoints will be heard from the fields of engineering, the legal and also insurance domains.
