DRI International has announced its conference session lineup for “DRI 2013: The Certified Professionals Conference and Expo.” The event will be held June 4-7, 2013 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA. The conference program builds on the success of last year’s event, with a more international reach and a continued emphasis on innovative, in-depth topics.
The conference program was largely the result of an overwhelming response from industry professionals, with hundreds of submissions to a call for presentations making the decision of which to choose both extremely challenging and very exciting. And as incredible as the program is right now, be on the lookout for additional topics and sessions that we have in the works and will be announcing in the coming weeks.
Over the course of the three-day conference, experts from global companies and the business continuity industry will present a diverse program. Topics will include a wide variety of subjects geared toward senior executives in the field, including informative case studies, real-world lessons-learned presentations, and unique content available only at DRI2013. The event is designed for those looking to expand their knowledge of the profession in an environment way beyond BCP 101.
“Our conference program is truly international and unlike any other in the industry,” says DRI President Al Berman. “In addition to fantastic speakers from the U.S., we have presenters from all over the world — Italy, India, The United Arab Emirates, Australia, Canada, Estonia, Japan, and more. The nature of our program truly reflects the global reach of our organization and it speaks to the nature of business continuity challenges. We are interconnected globally through our businesses and supply chains, we hope to connect on a more personal level at DRI2013 in Philadelphia.”
In addition to an unmatched conference program, DRI2013 also will have unique and useful opportunities to connect with the vendor community including a Business Continuity Solutions Exchange, during which attendees and exhibitors participate in timed discussions of hot topics. The event also features pre- and post-conference training opportunities for those pursuing DRI International certification or certified professionals looking to advance their certifications or gain new knowledge in specific areas.
And let’s not forget about the DRI Foundation, which will offer volunteer opportunities in the days leading up to the conference. Additionally, the DRI International Awards of Excellence will recognize professionals throughout the industry who exemplify the highest standards of achievement at a gala dinner and ceremony.
