ATLANTA, GA – Imago Trade Shows, a division of Atlanta-based Imago Productions, Inc., and BNP Media have joined forces to launch a new trade show serving the Disaster Reconstruction Industry. The National Disaster Reconstruction Expo (NDRExpo) will launch June 17-18, 2009 at the Earnest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LI. The NDRExpo was developed to unite the numerous vertical markets associated with disaster reconstruction preparation, response, recovery and rebuilding.

From Financial Loss Mitigation and Business Continuity to Disaster Restoration & Remediation and Community Rebuilding & Construction, the Disaster Reconstruction Industry encompasses over 50 industry segments represented by more than 75 associations and organizations. The majority of these vertical markets work together to rebuild communities that have suffered catastrophic losses and are served by the same manufacturers, distributors and service providers.

The NDRExpo will be the first event to consolidate the Disaster Reconstruction Industry. NDRExpo offers disaster management professionals the opportunity to explore each other's capabilities and challenges with the goal of minimizing the loss of life and property resulting from catastrophic events.

"We look forward to bringing these different entities together in one world-class event in New Orleans and to providing the opportunity for them to learn from, and support each other," said Evan Kessler, Publisher of Restoration & Remediation magazine, a BNP Media publication.

"We surveyed the industry and were astounded by the results," said Jimmy Mouton, President of Imago Trade Shows. "Over 83% of those surveyed indicated a consolidated event was needed. In addition, we learned what industry segments these professionals would like to see in one setting. Our goal is to create a forum for these individuals that creates opportunities for greater cohesiveness of response and recovery efforts."
