Each year, thousands of risk management professionals from across the country and around the world gather at the Risk Management Society’s Annual Conference & Exhibition to learn, network and advance their organizational and career objectives. Part of a proactive strategy to maintain its leadership positioning, offer enhanced value to its members and attract an even wider range of participants, RIMS has retained VP International and Marketing Design Group to consult on programming and event marketing.

Denise Paccione, MDG president commented, “Partnering with VP International to meet the full range of the association’s needs made perfect sense. By combining Vinnie Polito’s experience in conference development and reengineering with MDG’s attendee marketing acumen, we can creatively and innovatively address all key areas of responsibility RIMS outlined in its RFP—research, content creation and marketing.”

The initiative will be carried out over the next 18 months, culminating at the 2013 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
