The Restoration Industry Association will once again host the well-received Forensic Restoration Technical Conference. The conference will be Oct. 11-13 at the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri.

Last year’s inaugural conference sold out in a few weeks, so RIA has expanded the number of registrations available this year. In addition, the organizers are introducing a number of new elements to the 2016 conference including expanded classroom and hands-on training. The first two days of the conference will feature in-depth classroom learning on topics such as pathology, infectious disease remediation, project procedures and waste disposal. The final day of the conference focuses exclusively on hands-on training where participants will be required to work in personal protective equipment for a portion of the training.

There are a limited number of registrations available for the hands-on component. 

RIA has a room block at the Marriott Renaissance Hotel St. Louis. Single and double bed rooms are $125 per night, with a free parking. The deadline to book at the group rate is September 12, 2016.
