Disaster Recovery Journal, the leading business continuity publication in the world, has officially announced the launch of its 61st conference, DRJ Fall 2019 “Innovations in Managing Risk & Resiliency,” Sept. 29-Oct. 2 in Phoenix, Ariz.
In an unprecedented response to the call for papers, the agenda provides a deep dive into all facets of managing risk in today’s hyper-connected, over-regulated, increasingly outsourced world. DRJ Fall 2019 offers the industry’s broadest range of topics for professionals responsible for business continuity and disaster recovery.
“One of the trends we’re seeing is an increasing number of new people attending our conferences,” said Bob Arnold, DRJ president. “They are being pulled into creating new business continuity plans and dealing with new levels of uncertainty. Not only are they able to immerse themselves in the training and sessions, we facilitate connections with other attendees who are more seasoned professionals.”
The four-day event will feature more than 65 sessions, workshops and executive roundtables, more than 85 expert speakers, networking meals and hospitality events, product demonstrations, and more than 80 exhibitor booths.
