World Conference on Disaster Management, Toronto, Canada

June 6-9, 2010 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre

The World Conference on Disaster Management (WCDM) will be celebrating 20 years and is proud to be the premier annual event for disaster management professionals, providing a global perspective on current issues and concerns in the industry.
The 20th WCDM will bring delegates from over 40 countries within the fields of Emergency Planning/Management, Business Continuity, Emergency Response, Risk Management, IT Disaster Recovery, Disaster Management Research, Emergency Communications, Emergency Health, Security, HR, Environmental, Community Planning, as well as for the organizations which supply and service these professions.
In 2010 we will take an in-depth look at how our professions have evolved over the past twenty years, the lessons we have (or not) learned as well as looking into future trends and threats to the safety and well-being of our communities. A major goal of the 20th WCDM is to offer a program that challenges delegates by examining traditional concepts and methods, and provides:

  • new ideas and approaches to problem solving
  • both leading edge and topical presentations
  • opportunities to connect with key individuals and organizations across the disaster management spectrum
