They are inviting businesses to buy tickets or book tables to learn how they can future-proof business in an unpredictable ever-changing environment, including preparing for disasters.

Having a resilient community means that during times of disaster, people are able to recover more quickly, and start contributing again to the local economy.

It is an opportunity for businesses to find out how to ensure their business is sustainable after an emergency, while also supporting Red Cross in reaching vulnerable people at home and abroad.
