EVENT

-

The annual DRI Conference is dedicated to the meaningful exchange of information among professionals in the areas of business continuity, disaster recovery, risk management and more, across all industries. Our non-profit status allows us to deliver a stress-free, non-competitive learning environment where the speakers are all senior members of their organizations. In fact, a large portion of our attendees hold executive positions, giving them a level of knowledge that fosters in-depth discussions that detail their organization’s response to major events of recent years.
