Did you know that one in four businesses experiencing a major emergency fails? According to a study by The Advertising Council, less than half of America's business owners have an established, comprehensive disaster preparedness plan in place. As the number of declared emergencies has more than doubled in the past few years, being prepared is more important than ever.

Knowing exactly what to do in the event of an emergency will ensure that your business remains alive and intact. Either for a major natural disaster or a localized emergency, it is crucial to prepare your business for an interruption of any size. Investing in a disaster preparedness plan now will save you time and money later. Furthermore, establishing a thorough emergency plan will increase your credibility with your clients, vendors, and community.

Whether you are just starting to think about creating a disaster plan for your business or looking to update your current plan, our educational seminar will provide you with the knowledge and tools needed to create a complete and efficient plan.

Participating in the Disaster Preparedness Summit

Participating in the Disaster Preparedness Summit is an excellent way to reach a specific target audience of purchasers and decision makers in the business sector who are working on their disaster plans and preparation. Our attendees are CEO's, COO's, CFO's, VP's, business owners, property Managers, risk managers, IT Managers, facilities managers, etc.; anyone responsible for keeping his or her business or community up and running if and when a disaster occurs. We are not a typical trade show - we keep the Summits very exclusive in terms of both sponsors and exhibitors, so that there is plenty of one on one time with all the attendees during registration, breakfast, lunch, and breaks.
Exhibiting at the Disaster Preparedness Summit is a fantastic way of raising your service or product's visibility. Furthermore, exhibiting and educating the attendees at the Summit also demonstrates your ongoing commitment and support of disaster preparedness activities and programs. Summit exhibitors will be recognized on the Summit website and receive promotional power with their company's inserts and materials included in every attendee welcome bag. Exhibitors also have the opportunity to obtain the exclusive attendee contact list after the event, allowing them to follow up with key decision makers. Our attendees are the main decision makers and purchasers at their respective companies, and they come looking for products and services to assist them in their preparation and planning.
