EPBC Conference 2020

Vancouver, BC - The Pacific Northwest Preparedness Society and Emergency Preparedness for Industry and Commerce Council (EPICC) came together in 2013 to host a joint conference in order to expand opportunities for, and bring a broader perspective to, the development of emergency management. The conference will continue to cultivate information of specific relevance to the various practitioner groups within the emergency preparedness and business continuity fields. 

This year’s joint conference, the Emergency Preparedness and Business Continuity Conference will be our first ever 1 Day Virtual event, on November 05, 2020.

With the announcement of the BC’s Restart Plan by the Premier on 06 May 2020, conferences in British Columbia can only occur during Phase 4 of the Restart. This Phase requires that there is either widespread vaccination, or “community immunity” or broad successful treatments to be in place.

It is extremely unlikely that we will reach Phase 4 of the response to the COVID 19 outbreak by November 2020. We have determined that the 2020 event has to be held virtually and are looking forward to bringing you a great 1 day online event.

We will be in touch with all our sponsors and exhibitors. For prospective speakers, all submissions received for the 2020 Conference will be considered for both the Virtual Conference on November 05, 2020 and the 2021 Conference.

Again, we would like to express our appreciation to all our colleagues, especially those in the health care sector, who are working hard during this response to COVID 19. We recognise that we are all in this together and we are doing our part.

Please stay safe by handwashing and physical distancing. Look after your families and stay well.
