Australian, New Zealand Disaster and Emergency Management Conference
Asia-Pacific, January 17 2014
The Australian & New Zealand Disaster and Emergency Management Conference will be held at the QT Gold Coast, 5th – 7th May 2014. This international event running across three days brings together key stakeholders involved in the prevention, management and recovery of major disastrous events, a forum to examine the issues surrounding natural and man-made hazards.
The conference will examine what we have learnt in the past few years and provide a comprehensive forum that shines a light on resilience and offers professionals (and future professionals) an opportunity to examine the expertise, competencies and systems relating to the preparedness for future disasters, emergencies and hazards and the ability to recover from them quickly and efficiently.
The theme of “EARTH; FIRE AND RAIN” will inspire national and international speakers selected and invited by the committee, a panel of experts in the profession. Speakers will provide a dynamic and topical program and discuss a vast range of subject including emergency management, public safety, security, community resilience, business continuity, data protection and much more.
There will be multiple streams and informative workshops as well as an all-encompassing exhibition showcasing equipment, products, services and solutions. The conference is an outstanding platform for education and to initiate new business relationships – it is not to be missed by anyone involved in emergency management and disaster response and recovery.
