The International Disaster Conference & Expo (IDCE) is currently accepting presentations for speaking opportunities during its second annual conference program taking place at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
IDCE unites public and private sector leadership to create global discourse regarding lessons learned, best practices, forward thinking, and policies and procedures which shape the landscape of Emergency Management, Homeland Security, First Response, Business Continuity, and all aspects of Disaster Preparation, Response, Recovery, and Mitigation on a global scale. Presentations submitted for consideration should be in line with this purpose. Presentations submitted may be considered for publication in one of three industry journals associated with IDCE.
