Registration Open for the 2014 IRMI Construction Risk Conference

Release Date: Jul 8, 2014

Dallas, TX, July 9, 2014International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (IRMI), has opened registration for the 34th IRMI Construction Risk Conference, to be held November 9–13, 2014, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

The IRMI Construction Risk Conference is the only national symposium devoted exclusively to construction insurance, risk management, loss control, and bonding. The agenda will feature more than 60 carefully selected speakers presenting 34 workshops designed to provide construction risk professionals with proven risk management strategies and insights.

“As the economic recovery gains momentum, construction spending is increasing in most sectors,” said IRMI President and CEO Jack Gibson, CPCU, CRIS, ARM. “Meanwhile, insurance rates are stable or increasing somewhat, and project owners are still transferring as much risk as possible down to contractors. As contractors bid on new projects and begin to increase their workforces, it is more important than ever for them to shore up their risk management programs and reinforce their networks of insurance contacts. The IRMI Conference offers an unparalleled way to accomplish these objectives.”

Each year, the Conference brings about 1,200 leading project owners, general contractors, subcontractors, developers, insurers, and insurance brokers together to explore and convey state-of-the-art ideas and techniques for improving insurance coverages, controlling insurance costs, and fine-tuning risk management programs. It also provides a unique opportunity to build a powerful network of new industry contacts and revisit old friends.

The registration fee has not increased in 8 years, and significant discounts—as high as 50 percent—are available to risk managers and certain other members of the industry. The quality of the learning and networking is backed by a unique money-back, no-questions-asked guarantee.
