Commercial Symposium: Hurricane | June 11, 2019
Facing the Storm: The Case for Business Resilience
The devastating hurricanes of 2017 and 2018 underscore the vulnerability of our nation’s commercial structures to severe wind and cataclysmic flooding, and the importance of resilience in reducing damage and disruption. IBHS is hosting a special symposium to focus on lessons learned from the hurricanes and how business and community leaders can prevent avoidable damage in the future. The symposium will include observations and experiences from the business and insurance perspectives, detailed assessments from several field deployments, and insights from IBHS.
Join industry experts from the American Institute of Architects, Aon, EPDM Roofing Association, IBHS, International Code Council, Small Business Administration, University of Alabama Center for Economic Development, and Zurich.
The event will be held at the IBHS Research Center in Richburg, South Carolina (click here for logistical details on getting to the IBHS Research Center). The format will emphasize interactive dialogue between expert panelists and attendees, with the goal of assembling a diverse group to identify best practices for future resilience. Campus tours will be available, and a wind demonstration is being planned.

Insurance professionals from Risk Engineering, Loss Control, Underwriting, Claims, Analysis, Research, and any other stakeholders who are interested.
