ABOUT INSIGHTS / Conference & Trade Show

Insights began in 1996 as a small trade show run by DKI, a company that is now the property restoration industry’s largest contracting organization. It was initially a chance for DKI franchise companies to meet each other and check out some of the equipment, rentals, and other services available in the industry.

Insights is now the property damage restoration industry’s most exclusive conference and exposition, bringing together the industry’s elite with education and training opportunities to meet their business needs. It features some of the most beneficial training courses, world-class speakers, incredible networking opportunities, and the most extensive trade show and exhibition floor in the property restoration industry.
