The 2021 Aircraft Builders Council Annual Conference will take place in-person September 12–14 at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in Scottsdale, Arizona. We look forward to seeing our ABC colleagues at this annual forum on the most recent developments in the aviation and aerospace industry and products liability. This event brings together ABC insureds, potential insureds, lead underwriters, brokers and defense counsel, all at one locale. 

Caring for conference attendees is our top priority.  The Fairmont is taking extensive measurers to protect and care for hotel guests and follows the most stringent cleaning standards and operational procedures in the hospitality industry. Please see the Fairmont's "All Safe and Well" page for more details including an outline of the attendees' experience from arrival to departure. 

Conference confirmations sent in early September will include safety protocols to follow while in the ABC meeting space. Federal and state guidelines continue to ease and we are anticipating a “nearly normal” event.  Click this link for additional travel and safety information.

Additional Conference Details
Speaker 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.
