Release Date: Nov 11, 2012

Orlando, FL, November 12, 2012—Over 1,000 risk managers, insurance agents, brokers, attorneys, and underwriters who specialize in managing or insuring the risks associated with construction projects convened here November 11–15 for the 32nd IRMI Construction Risk Conference.

The IRMI Construction Risk Conference is the only national symposium devoted exclusively to managing, insuring, and bonding the risks of construction projects. The Conference featured a general session and 24 workshops presented by more than 55 nationally recognized insurance, risk management, safety, and surety experts.

Contractors large and small sent their risk, insurance, and safety managers. In addition, virtually all the major providers of insurance or surety services were represented, and a substantial number of risk managers representing project owners (i.e., companies with large construction projects planned or under way) attended.

“With insurance rates and premiums trending higher, contractors are focusing more intensely on ways to control their costs through careful insurance purchasing, safety programs, and good claims management,” said IRMI President & CEO and Conference Cochairman Jack Gibson. “The IRMI Conference provides unique opportunities for contractors, their brokers, and their underwriters to meet and plan for the coming year. As a result, this Conference has become a must-attend event for proactive risk managers and those in the insurance industry who serve them.”

The 33rd IRMI Construction Risk Conference will be held November 17–21, 2013, in San Diego, CA. For more information, visit or contact International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (IRMI), at 12222 Merit Drive, Suite 1600, Dallas, TX, 75251, or phone 800–827–4242.
