The construction industry plays an integral role in building the future of the modern world amidst many challenges. Increasingly complex projects, skills shortages and profitability concerns, mixed with the rapid pace of technology development, are collectively concocting an increasingly risky operating environment for all players.

While the pace of global construction looks set to grow, what has become evident following several large loss events in 2018 and a bumpy start to 2019, is that the losses are bigger, the tail is longer, the fallout is messier and the recovery, more complex.

However, while there’s no denying the challenges that reside in the construction industry, there is a lot to look forward to as the industry receives cash injections from governments around the world as the race to build the smart cities of tomorrow continues.

Big infrastructure projects and game-changing innovation are expected to provide a wake-up call to the industry as there will be a real call for more aligned ways of working.

Risk prevention, management and mitigation in the construction industry has never been more important. It is against this backdrop we set this year’s Construction Risk Management conference, to encourage better and more transparent communication between the sector and the insurance industry which plays a valuable role in all of this.

It’s fair to say that a number of factors have contributed to a frustration among the industry and the insurance market when it comes to the placement of risks and this conference is designed to help everyone attending gain a better understanding of the challenges and find the right risk management strategies and risk transfer solutions to cement the future of the construction industry.
