In November, Spectrum president, Robert Holmes, attended the International Association of Fairs and Expositions (IAFE) Convention and Trade Show in Salt Lake City, where he was honored to receive the 2023 IAFE Associate of the Year award. “Robert has been a very active associate member of the IAFE, serving on committees, attending events, and serving as a sponsor,” said Marla Calico, CFE, President and CEO of the IAFE.

The IAFE Associate of the Year award is to recognize an outstanding individual IAFE associate member. From the beginning, the mission of Spectrum has been to be laser-focused on customer service and to create innovative solutions to the issues that plague those with financial exposure to weather. Robert has led the way regarding the implementation or design of non-standard weather policies, such as stepped rain coverage, cancellation insurance with rain, and most recently, the development of a heat-index insurance policy.

Spectrum has been steadfast in our commitment to the fair industry and we are so honored to have that dedication recognized with this award. We would not be where we are without our many fair and expo clients-turned-friends, who have worked with us to help us really understand what it is the industry needs when it comes to weather and cancellation insurance. This has allowed us to extend our offering beyond standard insurance policies and create custom solutions that address the needs of each client. We look forward to continuing to innovate and helping even more clients in 2024!
