NEW YORK (July 10, 2013) – The success of RIMS 2012 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Philadelphia was acknowledged by the award-winning Trade Show Executive magazine and included in the publication’s “Fastest 50” ranking.  According to the magazine, RIMS ’12 grew faster than 99 percent of the other U.S. shows in the exhibitor category (ranked #19) and overall attendance category (ranked #23).

Launched in 1963, RIMS Annual Conference & Exhibition attracts 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.

“RIMS dedicated staff and committed members work tirelessly year-round to develop and host the world’s premier tradeshow for risk management professionals.  It’s extremely gratifying to see this tremendous team effort recognized,” said Stuart Ruff, RIMS Director of Meetings & Events.  Trade Show Executive is a highly-respected publication and it’s truly an honor to be included in its 'Fastest 50' ranking alongside some of the largest shows in the world.”
