The Marine and Energy Insurance Conference is being held in Houston, September 15 -17. The venue is the beautiful Westin Galleria Hotel on West Alabama. The event is designed for insurance professionals, students, and includes continuing education courses.
The first day kicked off with a casino party. There was plenty of food and beverage for everyone. I got myself introduced to many conference attendees with drinks over a game of black jack (just chips, no real money). There is a large university presence at the conference. Students of various disciplines are encouraged to enter the insurance profession.
One of the reasons I like to attend these meetings is because so many aspects of the energy business require insurance. Here are some of the topics:
- Supply Chain Disruption
- Supply Chain Risk
- Work Accidents
- International Sanctions
- Risk Management
The conference will be here until Tuesday. So, there is still time to join us. Find out more here: https://houstonmeic.com/program-info/
