Momentum builds for Subsidence Conference 2024 

Momentum is building for ILC’s Home & Property specialist Subsidence Conference with a number of speakers and sponsors announced. 

Making a return on Thursday 7 March 2024 at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (Coventry) the event – backed for the second consecutive year by Headline Sponsor: Optera; along with Gold Sponsor: 360Globalnet; and Silver Sponsors: Courtesy Kitchens & Bathrooms, Flawless Soil Testing, and Sedgwick – will follow-up on discussions from 2023 which carefully examined the 2022 surge fully aware that many claims were still arriving throughout Q2 2023.  

The event will ask where are we now – offering views from both insurers and loss adjusters; examine the blockages – taking into account insurer, loss adjuster and contractor perspectives – to understand where the challenges lie, and ask what the impact is and can the sector plan ahead; and highlight the environmental aspects such as council involvement, legislation and trees Vs concrete – all of which can potentially provide more uncertainty for insurers and policyholders. Each session will look to understand the challenges this all presents to estimating and reserving. 

Among the participants scheduled to join discussions are:  

  • Sarah Dodd, Founder, Tree Law Ltd 
  • Alex Finch, Commercial Director, Optera Ltd 
  • Jemma Garrett, Founder & Laboratory/Managing Director, Flawless Soil Testing Ltd 
  • Richard Rollitt, Technical Director, Innovation Group 
  • Kevin Williams, Head of Subsidence & Valuations, Sedgwick 
  • Steve Winks, Supply Chain Executive, AXA 
  • Steve Wright, Head of Technical Services, GHG Solutions Ltd 

Feedback for the highly acclaimed 2023 event, which attracted some 230 delegates, included comments such as: ‘Really enjoyed the event, great to get the views of others in the supply chain’; ‘Great pace, agenda, setting and speakers’, and ‘Congratulations on a great event, really enjoyable’.
