The RIA Technical Fire Restoration Summit takes place November 19-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The two-day event features courses taught at both an applied and advanced technical level. Attendees will learn skills not normally detailed at industry events such as:

  • Technical application of new science and product availability to overcome odor and contaminants
  • Psychology of the loss and overcoming odor as an emotion of a past event
  • Financial implications of working projects and getting paid
  • Determining the success of a job based on measurable benchmarks.

“Fire restoration can be one of the most complex areas that restoration professionals face,” said Steve Lowry, RIA director and chair of the Technical Fire Restoration Summit. “Changes in best practices, advances in building construction, and updated insurance requirements add to the intricacies of this task. Our summit will give attendees the opportunity to increase their skill set by interacting with leaders in the fire restoration industry.”

The cost for RIA’s Technical Fire Restoration Summit is US$795, although a discounted early-bird rate of $695 is available until September 27. Registration includes access to all education sessions, in addition to access to ISSA Show North America 2019.

“We’re pleased to be partnering with RIA to offer its Technical Fire Restoration Summit as part of the robust educational lineup at ISSA Show North America 2019,” said Kim Althoff, ISSA vice president of sales, trade shows, and media. “Restoration is a vital cog in the cleaning industry, and we’re honored to be able to present such a vital training opportunity to our community.”
