DRJ of course!

While Beth is technically correct, I'd like to expand on her answer just a little. The DRJ conference is the largest gathering of Business Continuity Professionals in the world. That type of attendance carries some advantages in having industry leading speakers, access to some of the most sought after vendors and excellent facilities. An opportunity to network with some of the industry's thought leaders and get face to face time to help address some of the issues you encounter all make the DRJ conference one of the best values in the industry.
