Nation's Largest Property/Casualty Claims Expo - San Antonio
Insurance Services Expo
April 18 & 19, 2016

Providing prompt expert claims service to property and casualty insurance company policyholders is the goal of over 300 organizations that will be exhibiting at the 2016 Insurance Services Expo in San Antonio. The Expo is part of the nation's largest property and casualty adjuster educational event, the Property & Liability Resource Bureau (PLRB) Claims Conference. The Insurance Services Expo will be held in San Antonio, Texas, April 18 and 19, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

The Expo will connect over 4,000 Claims Conference attendees with claims service providers that offer expertise in disciplines ranging from accident scene investigation to weather reporting services.

The exhibitors offer services locally and nationally. For example, Independent Contractors Network of Eugene, Oregon, a firm offering independent, credentialed contractors with specialized software and services to streamline repairs, reduce unnecessary costs, and improve client satisfaction is exhibiting.

"The role of a claim service provider is often crucial to helping the policyholder recover following a loss," said Scott Powell, Vice President, Educational and Technical Services, PLRB. "A policyholder typically has little experience in managing a crisis situation, such as finding housing after a wind storm loss or replacing the family's possessions after a fire. Firms at the Expo can provide those services to help the policyholder get back to normal."

Over 4,000 insurance professional are expected to attend the 2015 Claims Conference, between April 17 and 20, 2016. The Expo is open to all attendees on Monday, April 18 and Tuesday, April 19.

About 90% of the available booths have been reserved. Space is still available. Information is available online at http://www.plrbclaimsconference.org/ and click on "Exhibits." The list of registered exhibitors and the floor plan at the Gonzales Convention Center is available there.

The Property & Liability Resource Bureau is a not-for-profit association of property and casualty insurance companies. It is located in Downers Grove, Illinois.
