Since the first event in 2012, DRI’s conferences have grown to become must-attend experiences for business continuity and resilience professionals. The conferences provide real education and networking opportunities, while maintaining a close-knit, intimate environment attendees prefer. Each year, the conference builds on the responses of its participants to curate a program that truly speaks to the interests and needs of experienced business continuity professionals including tracks in healthcare BCM, cyber risk, women in BCM, and Fortune 500 case studies. The event also involves them in highly-requested activities including professional development through pre-conference training and community volunteerism.

Conference Program

DRI conferences are popular for their selection of breakout sessions tackling the most important issues facing the business continuity community including tracks in healthcare BCM, cyber risk, women in BCM, and Fortune 500 case studies. All sessions are presented by carefully selected subject matter experts with experience in those topics. Presentations range from real-world case studies to lively discussions that engage the audience directly. Every session from past conferences is available for download as a PDF from DRI’s presentation library.

Praise for DRI Conferences
DRI conferences give attendees an event that speaks to them, offering a deep base of knowledge and a unique opportunity to network with other experienced professionals in business continuity and related fields. Here’s what just a few of those professionals had to say about the event:

Which part of the conference did you enjoy the most and why?

I really enjoyed the sessions I attended and it was nice meeting new people in the industry. Overall, it was a very positive first experience.

The quality and depth of the presentations. It’s good to attend conferences where the subject matter is appealing to more advanced users.

What makes the Annual DRI Conference different from other business continuity events you attend?

The panels and great ability to network with other BC professionals. The presentations, etc. are addressed to people who already are knowledgeable about BC. It allows us to grow and move to the next level of maturation at our company. I appreciate this aspect of the conference.

The level of learning is more at an advanced level, and the network opportunities are great because we interface with others that are more seasoned in the business.

Advanced content and plenty of time to network.

I have been to much larger events…and this event was smaller, but much easier to navigate and learn. I got so much more out of this event because of the real-life experience the presenters gave in their presentations. Great event!

World-class, informational, and progressive (forward thinking)!

It is the industry conference.
