NEW BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES ABOUND AT DISASTER RECONSTRUCTION CONFERENCE

April 1, 2009


NEW ORLEANS, LA - The National Disaster Reconstruction Conference & Expo (NDRExpo) announced registration for its educational programs, which is now available by visiting www.ndrexpo.com. The conference, which takes place June 17 to 18 in New Orleans, features experts who will address disaster preparation, response, repair, remediation and restoration.

“The NDR Conference will present new and exciting business opportunities to attendees,” said Imago Trade Shows Conference Director Jimmy Mouton. “At a time when normal business activity is curtailed, disaster services are still booming. Every time a business or homeowner experiences a fire, flood, tornado, hurricane, water leak, mold, asbestos claim, sick building or bio hazard, lucrative business opportunities are created for those ready to address the problems.”

Mouton said a variety of contractors, cleaning and restoration professionals, building services providers, insurance companies, wholesalers, environmental hygienists, hazardous material mitigators and data center emergency solutions consultants are among the best candidates to increase their work in the disaster response field.

Conference content includes sessions from representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Army Corps or Engineers, the Indoor Air Quality Association, the Restoration Industry Association, the American Bio-Recovery Association, the U.S. Green Building Council, the Mechanical Contractors Association and the Institute for Business & Home Safety.

Highlighted topics include “Measuring Mold Growth,” “Securing Government Contracts,” “Massive Roofing Renovations - Saving the Superdome,” “Interpreting EPA Labels,” “LEED Certification,” “The Disaster Experience,” “Satellite Communications in Disaster Zones” and “Hosted IP PBX From a Disaster Recovery Point of View.”

The conference schedule is posted on www.ndrexpo.com and continues to grow as additional presenters are added. For more information on the conference or expo, contact Mouton at jmouton@imagotradeshows or call 770-645-0046.
