ResCon, the premier annual international conference on the practice of successful resilience and disaster management in an evolving global environment, was originally scheduled for September 15-17 at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. The conference, a rebranding of the International Disaster Conference and Expo (IDCE) that usually brought 800+ registrants to New Orleans annually since 2012, was partnered with the National Governors Association to produce this year’s annual conference.
Statement from ResCon:
After careful consideration of the demanding schedules and travel variability within the resilience community, the National Governors Association and ResCon have decided to postpone the upcoming ResCon conference.
The core of ResCon is interactivity and inclusivity, and it is vital that everyone be able to participate in person. We deeply regret this action but look forward to once again gathering with an all-star line-up of speakers and topics over our 2022 dates.
Mark your calendars now:
April 19-21, 2022
With a hopeful eye to the future, please be advised that :
• All ResCon 2021 paid registrations and sponsorships will be rolled over to the April 2022 conference. If you wish to cancel instead, email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will have 30 days to make this request.
• We will work with hotel partners to maintain current hotel block options for the spring event.
• We will offer timely and relevant webinars supporting the themes of the current program until we can meet again.
In the meantime, thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing everyone in New Orleans, April 19-21, 2022.
