The team at Risk & Insurance® is excited to announce that our publication, along with the National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference® & Expo (NWCDC) and the National Ergonomics Conference & ErgoExpo® (ErgoExpo), have been acquired by The Institutes, the leading risk management and insurance knowledge provider. The deal closed on December 9, 2019.
“Joining The Institutes is beyond exciting for our entire team,” said Matthew Kahn, president of Risk & Insurance, NWCDC, and ErgoExpo.
“Our shared values on the importance of knowledge and education create the core of our organizational synergies. Our assets will help expand The Institutes’ offerings into new topics like workers’ compensation and ergonomics, while The Institutes’ long-term commitment will enable us to expand our digital platforms and develop some very exciting and innovative approaches at our events.”
Risk & Insurance is the leading digital and print platform for risk management and insurance news and information. It is also known for its award programs, including the Power Broker award, Risk All Stars and the Theodore Roosevelt Workers’ Compensation and Disability Management Award.
NWCDC and ErgoExpo will expand The Institutes’ educational offerings into the area of workplace-injury mitigation. NWCDC is the largest national workers’ compensation exposition, and ErgoExpo is the nation’s largest and longest-running ergonomics event, focused on providing knowledge about making employees safer by mitigating workplace injuries.
