Allianz calls out to Explorers around the world

Allianz today launched its Global Explorer Program: a series of global and local partnerships, digital and physical activations and crowd-generated content platforms that calls out to curious minds around the globe to explore, connect and share how disruptive technologies can drive a more sustainable way of life for humans.

“As one of the world’s largest global insurer, it’s our job to serve and protect risk takers. To do this, we need to understand risk, we need to explore every aspect of it,” said Jean-Marc Pailhol, Head of Group Market Management and Distribution at Allianz SE. “The Allianz Global Explorer Program is a manifestation of our curiosity and helps us to develop the right expertise. We want to accompany courageous and curious people and encourage them to live a full life,” he said.

The Allianz Global Explorer Program includes existing partnerships, but also extends to new initiatives and activities. Main program pillars are the new Explorer Hub micro-conferences, the partnership with FIA Formula E Championship, and crowd-sourced Explorer stories.

Starting with the first 2017/18 series Formula E Championship race in Hong Kong on December 2nd, Allianz will partner with WIRED magazine to stage the first Explorer Hub micro-conference. A group of prolific innovators, researchers, business leaders, soul searchers and curious minds will discuss the combined impact of different disruptive technologies that will drive sustainable change on urban spaces. By zooming in on their personal surroundings and life in the global metropolis Hong Kong, the panel will give their vision of the future in densely populated cities.

Allianz will also widen the scope of its flagship partnership with the FIA Formula E Championship. The long-term partnership with Formula E will see Allianz expand its innovation showcase through activities at the race, providing visitors and fans with immersive experiences at the Explorer Zone in the Allianz E-Village. New for the 2017/18 season, cities hosting the races will take center stage as Allianz creates a series of local activities that the general public can explore.

Allianz Explorer Stories, another main component of the Global Explorer Program, is a digital initiative that crowdsources video content to encourage sharing of curiosity and personal explorations. Explorer Stories is Allianz’s key initiative to connect explorers worldwide everyday by capturing and uploading their stories and using the hashtag #ExploreWithUs. Initiating the challenge of exploring the future of mobility, Allianz joins forces with Launch Forth and Canal+ to create initial executions by engaging with creator communities and audiences of curious minds and explorers around the world.
