The British Damage Management Association (BDMA) unveiled a whole new look at the beginning of the year with a brand new logo and the launch of a dynamic new website.

Speaking about the launch of the new brand and the organisation’s plans for 2017, BDMA Chairman Simon Ford said: “It was time to rebrand the Association to reflect its modern outlook and forward thinking strategy. This is especially important at a time when the industry is seeing advances in the ways our members deliver property claims recovery and restoration, and add value across the wider insurance industry.

“Our growing collaboration with other sectors and our contribution to strategic thinking in many areas requires us to have a distinct identity that reflects our professionalism and ongoing commitment to the highest standards.”

The BDMA will utilise multi-faceted communication channels to convey key messages and provide support for its 2,000+ members. Initiatives to be rolled out later in the year include a new accreditation for those working in commercial recovery and restoration, and a dedicated learning management portal to provide a range of online education options.

The launch of the new website in January was met with enthusiastic feedback from all sectors of the industry. The site offers an industry-wide resource and, in addition to a wealth of facilities to support the wide ranging BDMA member demographic, there is information and guidance for business and domestic property owners. Links to events and organisations likely to be of interest to a variety of site visitors, live flood warning data and an ‘Incident Watch’ section that will carry up-to-date status reports and news during flooding or extreme weather events, make this a one-stop shop for visitors with a range of interests.

Meanwhile, the biennial BDMA Conference and Exhibition, which takes place on 22-23 November in Stratford upon Avon, will provide an opportunity to review the many aspects of the recovery and restoration industry and get a glimpse of what the future may hold.

This year’s event will cover the property claims process from end to end, including procurement, underwriting, call centres and more, in addition to examining the work of damage management practitioners, claims managers, loss adjusters and insurers.

It will also address developments in technology and best practice that could change the shape of our industry. This includes generic developments, such as the connected home, plus routes equipment suppliers take in identifying, developing and adopting the latest advances in equipment technology.
