Learn From Seasoned Practitioners, Industry Thought Leaders

Learning new strategies, techniques, skills, and practices is essential for both business continuity professionals learning the ropes and advanced practitioners. It’s the most direct path to achieving new heights of resiliency within your organization.

The 2020 Continuity Insights Management Conference has developed a first-rate curriculum packed with meaningful sessions addressing critical topics that will help all BC professionals stretch their boundaries, form collaborations, acquire first-hand information from subject matter experts, and learn how to incorporate exciting new skills, methods, and tools into their own business continuity plans.

Scheduled for April 20-22, 2020, at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, Texas, the 18th Annual Continuity Insights Management Conference offers educational tracks devoted to Trending Topics, Program Development & Advancement, Measurement, Metrics, and Maturity, Emerging Technology, and Professional Development, and Case Studies, which will include lively and insightful “Ask the Experts” panels.

Learn From the Experts
The 2020 Continuity Insights Management Conference faculty is comprised of proven business continuity leaders, strategists, practitioners, and peers. Many of them are current business continuity and resiliency professionals; others are well-respected industry leaders who provide unique insights on the business continuity landscape and have experienced first-hand the situations you want to know about.

The full conference program, including speakers, sessions, plenaries, and panel discussions, is available for download here.

The preliminary schedule kicks off on Sunday, April 19 with a selection of pre-conference workshops and certification classes, providing in-depth learning related to key business continuity and resilience topics. The pre-conference workshops will be followed by the opening night reception hosted by the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) and will include the presentation of the 2020 BCI Americas Awards.

The main conference will commence on Monday, April 20 with the opening keynote, What to Do When Things Go Wrong, to be presented award-winning event producer Frank Supovitz, President & Chief Experience Officer for Fast Traffic Events & Entertainment.

His keynote address, What to Do When Things Go Wrong, will stress managing every business problem like you were born for it – from a problem customer to a career-threatening crisis. It’s not being negative or pessimistic to assume that something will always go wrong in business and in your career. It’s being realistic. What you do when crisis hits is the only thing matters. And drawing upon a wealth of first-hand knowledge and experience, Supovitz’s presentation will deliver everything you need to take positive action with confidence, skill, and professionalism.

For more than 30 years, Supovitz, an award-winning event producer, has been at the helm of some of the world’s most prestigious, widely-viewed and well-attended sports and entertainment events, including the National Football League (Super Bowl, Pro Bowl, and NFL Draft), the National Hockey League, and Radio City Music Hall Productions.

Continuing Education
The rate of change within the profession mandates that business continuity practitioners remain current with industry certifications. It’s the unspoken commitment to serving organizations of all sizes to ensure that continue to operate at full capacity without interruption. Attendance at the 2020 conference will provide up to 29 continuing education credits (CEUs).

Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with other practitioners during attendee breakfasts, lunches, breaks between sessions, and a second reception in the exhibit hall on Monday evening. More than 50 business continuity service providers and consultants will be demonstrating products and answering questions in a relaxed setting during exhibit hours.

The main conference program will conclude at 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22.

Post-conference certification and workshops will commence immediately following the conference, beginning on Wednesday, April 22 and continuing through to Friday, April 24. Both pre- and post-conference programs are available to all attendees for an additional fee outside the conference registration.
