Los Angeles to Host RIMS Annual Conference & Exhibition in 2013
RIMS to bring worldâs largest conference for risk professionals to LA
NEW YORK (February 8, 2010) â The Risk and Insurance Management Society, Inc. (RIMS) today announced that the RIMS Annual Conference & Exhibition will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center in 2013, April 21 through 25. The event will be in its 51st year and attracts some 10,000 risk and insurance professionals who benefit from numerous educational sessions, keynote presentations, special events and an expansive Exhibit Hall.
âThe staff and leadership of RIMS are looking forward to taking the annual conference and exhibition to the dynamic destination that is Los Angeles,â says Mary Roth, executive director of RIMS. âLos Angeles has much to offer attendees both professionally and culturally, and I am confident that RIMS 2013 will be vibrant and productive.â
The Los Angeles Convention Center is in the heart of downtown and steps away from LA LIVE, an entertainment campus and home to the famous Nokia Theater. Here, the nationâs leading risk management and insurance professionals will gather to tackle the most pressing issues in the industry.Â Â
âLos Angeles is ecstatic to be hosting our first ever RIMS Annual Conference and Exhibition,â says Michael Krouse, senior vice president of the Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau. âWe worked for many years to bring this to fruition and anticipate that RIMS will be a tremendous economic driver to our city. I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the RIMS team and all attendees.â
