Hurricanes, Safety Culture, Kidnapping: Ready for RIMS 2009?

The popular RIMS show returns for its 2009 staging next month at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., testing whether corporate belt-tightening has halted safety and risk management professionals' travel so greatly that they won't even go to this conference. RIMS 2009 boasts the event's typically strong lineup of more than 120 educational sessions and is a "green" show this year, with handouts available online so attendees can download them or print them before they leave for the conference.

On-site registration will cost Risk and Insurance Management Society Inc. members $995 for a full pass, $455 for a one-day pass; the costs are $1,310 and $505, respectively, for non-members.
