NEW YORK (November 16, 2021) – RIMS, the risk management society®, is ready to welcome the world’s risk management community, insurance and brokerage industry leaders, business strategists and professionals at all levels to RIMS 2022 RISKWORLD™ scheduled for April 10-13 in San Francisco. RISKWORLD™ will also be the Society’s first hybrid annual conference, breaking down barriers and creating greater inclusivity for all who are interested in joining this career-boosting experience. Registration is now open for RIMS members and will open for the general public on December 1.
RISKWORLD, the Society’s renowned annual conference, has been re-imagined to keep pace with the rapidly evolving risk landscape while continuing to empower risk professionals to drive innovation and deliver value. Through the exchange of knowledge and experience, RISKWORLD will offer a global perspective, thought-leading insight and unparalleled networking opportunities for the risk management community to build resilient business strategies and achieve organizational and personal success. In addition to the in-person event, some RISKWORLD experiences will be available virtually.
“To say ‘a lot has changed since the last time RIMS hosted its annual conference in 2019’ would be an understatement,” said RIMS CEO Mary Roth. “New risks have emerged. Known risks have evolved and businesses priorities and strategies are shifting faster than ever before.
“To support risk professionals and the global business community as they face a world of dynamic challenges, RIMS has re-imagined its annual conference and exhibition. RIMS RISKWORLD will break boundaries, reach far beyond traditional risk management conversations and deliver an experience that our attendees expect, value and won’t forget. RIMS is ready to re-unite the risk management world and connect in-person after a difficult two-year pause.”
Launched in 1963, RIMS annual conference, now RISKWORLD, has routinely attracted some 10,000 risk and insurance professionals at all experience levels, business executives with risk management interests, brokers, insurers and service providers for the ultimate educational and networking experience. In past years, the four-day event has offered more than 160 educational sessions, keynote presentations, special events and an expansive Marketplace Exhibit Hall with nearly 400 exhibitors.
