The FAIR Foundation’s 2018 Annual Industry Conference, Private Market Solutions for Closing the Property Protection Gap, brings together industry and policy experts for a fast-paced and comprehensive discussion of risks, impacts, opportunities and solutions.
This conference focuses on private market SOLUTIONS for natural disasters. Flood. Sea Level Rise. Storm Surge. Wind. Earthquake. Wildfire. What can we do to close the protection gap? How can we prepare, adapt and transform to combat inevitable natural disasters?
Natural disasters pose a massive threat to our economy, environment and quality of life. Witness 2017. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria combined with devastating Western wildfires and other natural catastrophes to make 2017 the most expensive year on record for disasters in the United States, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Nationwide losses exceeded $300 billion. In Florida alone, insured losses are approaching $8 billion from Hurricane Irma with more than 900,000 claims filed.
Following the tremendous success of last year’s Insuring Uninsured Risk Conference, the FAIR Foundation is dedicating this year’s symposium to creating and maintaining a culture of preparedness through innovation and action.
Last year was a huge success for all attendees, many sharing positive feedback about the information shared and the notable people in attendance. Participants encompassed the entire spectrum of the property and insurance industries, including state and national insurance companies, small and large Florida businesses, property owners, educators, reinsurers, data modelers, rating agencies, media and legislators.
This conference is conducted as a component of the primary educational mission of The FAIR Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Registration fees support our ongoing efforts to provide proactive education, promote solutions for insuring uninsured risk and to advocate for resiliency through mitigation.
