The 2020 FAIR Conference Will Be Virtual, Oct. 6-7

June 4, 2020  RiskLens

The 2020 FAIR Conference (FAIRCON2020), the FAIR Institute’s annual gathering of the best thinkers (and curious learners) about quantitative risk management, goes virtual this year, October 6 and 7, with an extensive lineup of important keynote speakers (like FAIR model creator Jack Jones, right), engaging C-suite panels and expert case study sessions.

RiskLens, the technical adviser to the Institute, will be on hand, with our largest offering yet of FAIR training courses (check out the course guide), taught by the most experienced team in implementing quantitative risk management programs.

This year’s theme is "Factoring Risk in Decision Making" with a special emphasis on Fortune 1000 companies and U.S federal government agencies sharing their breakthrough work in business-aligned communication, cost-effective decision-making, and ultimately managing what matters in risk. (See 2019 FAIR Conference recaps and videos on the FAIR Institute website.)

FAIRCON2020 will also host a virtual Exhibitor Space, with opportunities to connect with event partners and sponsors through live chat.

Registration for the event is free for FAIR Institute members – so apply for membership now (also free to those in in the industry). Non-members may attend for a $150 fee. Register now.

Call for Speakers

The FAIR Institute has also put out the call for speakers, Institute members who are experienced FAIR practitioners and looking for an opportunity to share success stories and receive feedback from peers.
