The world has changed a lot in the last year and a half, including how we do business. On one hand, we’re all looking forward to getting back to business as usual, and on the other, we’re establishing a “new normal” brought on by lessons learned from the pandemic. One example of this is going back to doing business in person combined with the recent uptick in people wanting to work from home. The Disaster Recovery Journal’s upcoming conferences aim to find a balance between these two desires with a hybrid of in-person and virtual events.
Disaster Recovery Events—The Time for Getting Together Is Now
I think it’s safe to say that we’re all ready to enter the post-pandemic world after a long year of social distancing. It’s encouraging to see many restrictions being lifted and businesses re-opening their doors, allowing us all to travel and get together to learn, collaborate, and innovate within our industry.
We are starting to see our industry schedule live disaster recovery events again, and we’re excited to attend shows like the Disaster Recovery Journal’s DRJ Fall 2021 conference in Phoenix, Arizona, this September 19-22. This event offers leading experts, a cutting-edge agenda, unbeatable networking, and the latest demos. Their theme this year is very fitting: Resiliency in a Time of Rebuilding.
Balancing In-Person with Virtual Events
In addition to their live event, the DRJ is hosting a virtual online show for those who aren’t able to travel due to COVID protocols. This virtual conference will follow the live event, taking place October 11-14, and is meant to act as a full virtual experience that will mimic what those who attended the in-person event experienced. As a bonus, it allows you to attend both events and attend more sessions!
This year, more than 85 experts will speak at over 65 sessions on how to reduce downtime, increase workplace safety, build data security, reduce overall risk, build new skills, and adapt the latest technology. If you’d like a sneak peek, you can download the attendee conference guide and ROI Toolkit on their website.
Other Upcoming Events
We couldn’t talk about disaster recovery events without mentioning that The Continuity Insights 2021 Management Conference will take in Minneapolis this October 4-6. For their 19th annual management conference, Continuity Insights will include more than 50 sessions and will include classes, workshops, panel discussions, plenary sessions, and networking events.
In addition, we expect basic courses to continue with enhanced learning as we adjust to the post-pandemic world. But we cannot lose focus on the day-to-day events that continue to challenge our resources.
