About the 2020 Industry Summit: Response in a Pandemic

The 2020 Industry Summit: Response in a Pandemic is a one-day Summit taking place in Houston, TX, on November 17th and is focused on response in a pandemic. 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. There will be an option to attend the Summit in-person or virtually. All sessions will be live-streamed for those attending virtually, and networking with speakers, attendees and tabletop sponsors will be available through our mobile app or web platform experience.
