IRMI Hosts First In-person Transportation Risk Conference

Release Date:

Dallas, TX—In 2021, International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (IRMI), hosted a successful virtual IRMI Transportation Risk Conference (TRC) with nearly 200 attendees. This year, the event will be an in-person Conference held on September 19–21 in Des Moines, Iowa, providing attendees with the opportunity to network with industry thought leaders, expert speakers, and their colleagues.

The expansion of the Conference is part of IRMI’s continued commitment to helping risk and insurance professionals mitigate and cover the complex exposures associated with transportation and logistics.  

Session topics include supply chain challenges, cargo theft methods and trends, the gig economy, and using telematics to modify behavior, as well as the latest developments in MCS-90 case law.

Attendees will also hear from our keynote speaker—Mike Steenhoek, executive director of Soy Transportation Coalition—who will share his views on the condition of our transportation infrastructure and focus on current challenges and opportunities confronting our nation’s multimodal transportation system.

“Auto liability awards—and insurance premiums—have been spiraling out of sight in the past few years, and managing the risk has become essential,” said Jack Gibson, IRMI president and CEO. “This makes the topics to be covered at IRMI TRC very relevant to companies not only in the transportation industry but also construction, energy, agribusiness, and many others.”

The cost of registration includes a free pre-Conference course: Essentials of Regulations, Statutes, and Motor Carrier Liability Coverage. The session is ideal for anyone who wants to take a deep dive into the business auto and motor carrier coverage forms, common endorsements, and the effect of key motor vehicle statutes. The course is also one of the five required to earn the prestigious Transportation Risk and Insurance Professional (TRIP®) certification.

Don’t wait until the last minute—the early bird rate is only available until July 14 and saves you $100 off your registration fee.
