Welcome to Los Angeles and the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) 2013 Annual Conference & Exhibition.
On behalf of all Marsh colleagues, I invite you to enjoy our hospitality by visiting us at the Marsh and CS STARS exhibit booth, dropping by the Marsh Cafe to unwind and re-energize, and attending our reception on Monday night. We hope your schedule will also permit you to participate in this year’s array of compelling and informative sessions led by Marsh’s experts and attended by our colleagues. Dan Glaser, president and CEO of Marsh & McLennan Companies, along with senior executives from Marsh, will all be available throughout the event at various times and venues to meet with you. Marsh’s global leaders look forward to meeting you during what I am confident will be a very productive and enjoyable time at RIMS 2013.
President and CEO, Marsh Inc.
Managing Risk for Growth
The annual RIMS event is Marsh's most significant client investment. Whether we're meeting with you at the Marsh Cafe, demonstrating our latest technologies in the booth, or discussing risk issues in seminars and roundtables, RIMS is a key part of our efforts to help our clients effectively manage risk.
Though still primarily a US event, this year's RIMS will have more attendees from outside the US than ever before. Accordingly, we will focus on more global issues such as ever-growing cyber risks and the use of analytics to make better-informed decisions around risk and insurance strategies. We will also cover key US challenges such as the impact of the health care reform law on risk management and the effects of rising workers' compensation costs.
