RES/CON is the premier annual international conference on the practice of successful resilience and disaster management in an evolving global environment.

This is a rebranding of a conference called International Disaster Conference and Expo (IDCE) that has brought over 800 registrants to New Orleans annually since 2012.

Based in New Orleans — a globally recognized hub of resilience, disaster management and innovation — this 3-day conference will bring a previously unseen mix of disaster and resilience practitioners to explore profound and powerful topics that impact communities and economies worldwide.

Plenary sessions, workshops, policy debates, best-practice reviews and peer networking events will engage and promote participation from all who attend.
