It might only be July, but you know how the summer is - the days seem to pass by very quickly and before you know it - it's September. This is why now is the time to download the DRJ Fall World Agenda and to take advantage of our registration savings. 

Our 51st conference will be held from September 7 - 10 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. We received such excellent feedback on this new venue that we've decided to return for a second year. This stunning hotel and conference center has all the amenities you need for a successful learning and networking experience at DRJ Fall World. Along with outstanding rooms, you'll discover the nearby restaurants, the salt water pool, and the perks of being close to the San Diego Embarcadero. We have arranged for a special room rate for conference attendees, so we recommend you book your room sooner than later to take advantage of this special pricing

With a central theme of Building Your Program Using Best Practices, we have put together an agenda that offers you a range of learning opportunities that allow you to gain insight from the industry's top experts. Choose from workshops, general sessions, and break-out tracks that all focus on the latest trends, techniques and views on business continuity and disaster recovery. 

Download the agenda today to determine how you'll spend your time at Fall World. To help you gain some insight into the learning and networking opportunities offered at our conference, here's a quick look at three of your options:

  • Solutions Track 1: Operational Resiliency For A Virtualized Environment: Many organizations have a pressing and urgent need to reduce risk and accelerate the process towards operational resiliency. This can be a very challenging process. Learn how to protect and recover your data and applications. Gain insights and advice on how to reduce hardware costs, recovery complexity and streamline IT operations. Peter R. Laz, MBCP, MBCI, is a managing consultant in Forsythe’s Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery practice. (Sunday 4:00 - 5:00)
  • General Session 2: Achieving World Class Critical Communications: based on real world examples, this session will provide you with unique insights into the role communications plays in business continuity, along with the capabilities and emerging trends of emergency notification technology. Tony Schmitz, president and CEO of Send Word Now, is leading this session and will draw on his years of experience to demonstrate why communication is the backbone of business resiliency. (Monday 9:30 - 10:30 a.m.)
  • General Session 7: Robots Are (Not) People, Too: there is a lot of exciting robotics technology emerging that is designed to aid in disaster relief while helping to spare emergency and recovery personnel from potential harm. With this advance in technology come many questions about the impacts of robotics and how to safely use this technology. Learn about the proactive steps for recovery-workforce and individual resilience from Robert C. Chandler, Ph.D, a professor of communications and director of the Nicholson School of Communications at the University of Central Florida.(Wednesday 8:15 - 9:15 a.m.)
