After staging its annual Management Conference and New York events virtually in 2020 due to the Coronavirus, Continuity Insights is excited to return to a live, in-person event for 2021. The Continuity Insights 2021 Management Conference (#CIMC2021) is scheduled for October 4-6 at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, MN.
The 19th annual conference program will include more than 50 individual sessions devoted to Case Studies, Trending Topics, Program Development & Advancement, Measurement, Metrics, and Maturity, Emerging Technology, Professional Development, and “Ask the Experts” panels. Continuing education credits and certifications will be available to all conference attendees.
The agenda will feature a robust selection of classes, workshops, panel discussions, plenary sessions featuring leading thinkers in the business continuity/resilience space, and networking events across three days of forward-thinking education. The conference faculty will feature a preeminent lineup of thought leaders, innovators, and experts from a cross-section of industries.
The preliminary schedule will kick off on Saturday and Sunday, October 3-4 with a selection of pre-conference workshops and certification classes, providing in-depth learning related to key business continuity and resilience topics.
The level of enthusiasm we’re experiencing in putting together our 19th annual Management Conference makes returning to a live setting extremely rewarding,” said Continuity Insights Founder and Executive Publisher Bob Nakao. “We have been speaking to our past attendees, speakers, and business continuity/disaster recovery leaders and the appetite to meet face-to-face has been strong.”

The Continuity Insights staff is currently working with its Editorial Advisory Board to build this year’s conference program. At the same time, the team is closely monitoring all COVID-19 developments as part of its commitment to providing an event which will be fully compliant with safety measures advised or required by the state of Minnesota and the CDC.
“Based on discussions with our Editorial Advisory Board, faculty, practitioners, and industry marketers and sponsors, we feel the time is right to meet again in a safe environment,” said Robert Nakao, Executive Publisher of Continuity Insights. “The health and safety of all parties are first and foremost in our preparation as we work to provide education, networking, and the exchange of ideas and information to all business continuity professionals.”
