Each year DRI International, the leading industry non-profit, hosts an event designed for our community, by our community, addressing the topics certified professionals care about most and providing a first-rate educational experience that informs and inspires. This is a unique opportunity to hear and speak with the leading experts in our industry - real industry leaders from around the globe talking about their actual experiences.

Here are some of the many benefits of attending:

Exceptional Programming

Each conference features exciting tracks focused on the big issues in the profession, including Supply Chain, Technology, and Risk Management.

Each track includes a keynote address by a subject matter expert, a panel discussion, and an interactive work group session.

Among our other sessions are the ultimate business continuity and risk management case studies as well as presentations on the most current and compelling topics in continuity and related disciplines.

Earn Valuable CEAPs

Attending a DRI conference will go a long way to helping you further meet your annual CEAP certification requirements! Attendees have the potential to earn up to 34 CEAPs during the event.

Volunteer Day
