The 2020 Industry Summit: Response in a Pandemic is a one-day Summit that took place at the Hilton Americas in Downtown Houston, TX, on November 17th. The Summit was created for the response community to come together in-person, or virtually, to discuss best practices and lessons learned utilizing virtual command post during an actual response and to understand other ways to accomplish the virtual ICS process.

The 2020 Industry Summit is now available on-demand. If you didn’t attend in-person or virtually on November 17th, you can still register to access all content and networking opportunities. Your virtual on-demand registration will give you access to all sessions/panel discussions as well as all virtual booths and networking with attendees. The virtual platform will stay open through the end of the year, giving you plenty of time to make new connections and watch sessions.
