Continuity Insights has announced the full conference program, including speakers, sessions, plenaries, and panel discussions for the 2017 Continuity Insights Management Conference, taking place April 24-26, at the Marriott Denver City Center, Denver, Colorado.

The preliminary schedule kicks off on Sunday, April 23 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 “Get Certified!” opening night reception hosted by the Business Continuity Institute (BCI).

The main conference will commence on Monday, April 24 with the opening keynote, Institutional Knowledge! When Good Employees Leave, What Do We Really Lose and How Do We Retain It?, to be presented by Dr. Andrew Pena, Assistant Vice President for Human Resource Services at New Mexico State University.

More than 60 conference sessions devoted to Case Studies, Trending Topics, Program Development & Advancement, Measurement, Metrics, and Maturity, Emerging Technology, and Professional Development, as well as the highly-anticipated “Ask the Experts” panels, will continue through Wednesday, April 26. Continuing education credits and certifications are available to all conference attendees.

“This is the most robust conference program we’ve ever put together,” said Robert Nakao, Executive Publisher of Continuity Insights. “Our goal is to provide education, networking, and the exchange of ideas and information to all business continuity professionals, regardless of the sophistication of their technology, industry, or company size.”

Attendees will 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 40 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 26.

Post-conference certification and workshops will be conducted on Thursday and Friday, April 27-28. Both pre- and post-conference programs are available to all attendees for an additional fee outside the conference registration.
