Current Conference 

2020 Annual Conference

September 20-22, 2020 | The Ritz-Carlton, Naples | Naples, Florida


The Aircraft Builders Council conducts a conference each year, which is an informational forum on the most recent developments in the aviation and aerospace industry and products liability. This annual conference is unique in that it brings together insureds, potential insureds, lead underwriters, brokers and defense counsel, all at one locale.

Presentations are given on subjects of current interest, including insurance, law, governmental activity, and aviation and aerospace technology. In the past, speakers have included the CEO of Lloyd's, Administrators of the FAA, NASA Astronauts, United States District Court Judges, United States Legislators, as well as experts in the aerospace industry.

An important feature of this conference includes the participation of the program's lead underwriters, who are available for private consultations with insureds and potential insureds, together with their brokers.
