Natural and man-made disasters happen often, whether they are related to fire, water or environmental events, and damage restoration companies play a crucial role in repairing and rebuilding residential and commercial properties so they can be both functional and profitable once again.
There are many conferences and trade shows offered throughout the year that enable restoration professionals to gain necessary industry knowledge, participate in training certification programs, and take advantage of the many networking opportunities to allow them to be one step ahead of the competition.
If you are a professional working in the damage restoration industry, you may want to consider attending one or more of the following events taking place this year. Also listed are some of the events that have already occurred and will be offered again in 2024:
