Orlando, Florida, November 10, 2016—Nearly 1,800 construction risk and insurance professionals convened in Orlando, Florida, from November 6 through November 9 for the 36th IRMI Construction Risk Conference (CRC).


The IRMI Construction Insurance Conference began in 1982 with fewer than 150 insurance buyers and met twice a year. It has grown into CRC—the only national symposium devoted exclusively to managing, insuring, and bonding the risks of construction projects. This year’s CRC featured 3 general sessions and 27 sessions presented by more than 60 nationally recognized insurance, risk management, safety, and surety experts.

Contractors large and small sent their risk, insurance, and safety managers. In addition, virtually all of 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.

“The trending topics at this year’s Conference were onerous contract provisions, the pros and cons of owner versus contractor controlled insurance programs, managing the risks of drones, and trends in additional insured coverage,” 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 37th CRC will be held November 5–8, 2017, in Indianapolis, Indiana. For more information, visit
