This week, from June 8th to 11th, The World Conference on Disaster Management is taking place in Toronto, and Total Prepare is thrilled to be taking part as an exhibitor! It’s exciting to see how much planning and thought has gone into the event, and how many people in emergency management and business continuity positions from around the world are attending.
It promises to be 3 days of inspiration, education and international networking, as we celebrate 25 years of coming together to discuss our stories and strategies with the goal of building something better together.
This year, the theme of the conference is about Managing Complex Disasters. Preparing for the Worst. If you’re going to plan for a disaster, you might as well go all in, right? It’s the safest plan, after all, and minimizes the most risk!
Along with hearing from 7 internationally recognized keynote speakers and choosing from over 50 educational sessions, participants will be able to spend at least 10 hours in quality networking opportunities. By attending this program, participants are gaining a fuller–even global–perspective on current and emerging issues. They will return with cutting edge knowledge and new ideas for innovative emergency management. It’s conferences like these that give us at Total Prepare a stronger platform for providing Canadians the highest quality emergency gear and supplies in Canada.
