Allianz Insurance, one of the UK’s leading general insurers, has announced sponsorship of the International Tall Building Fire Safety Conference in June.
The conference, now in its 6th year takes place 18-20 June at the Excel, London alongside the FIREX International Exhibition.
The three day event will focus on different themes each day, with Tuesday 18th concentrating on fire engineering, design and testing and Wednesday 19th on risk management, insurance and construction. Allianz is sponsoring the third day of the event on Thursday 20 June, which focusses exclusively on firefighting in tall buildings.
Stuart Daws, head of loss control engineering, Technical commented: “We’re really proud to be sponsoring this international event. Promotion of risk management and fire safety has always been central to our business and we support our customers through offering risk management support and advice.
“Understanding and mitigating risks is what we do, so we understand the importance of such expert forums. Following recent tragedies involving high rise buildings it’s even more important to ensure that fire and risk management processes and practices get reviewed, examined and debated.”

“I am delighted that Allianz are supporting this important opportunity for Tall Building Fire Safety stakeholders from around the world to come together and share best practise. Global insurers like Allianz play a major role in reducing risk and focusing attention on loss prevention”.
