HLA is once again pleased to be media partner for IDR Expo, which takes place in London on 3-4 December 2019. We will be running three free workshops at the event – details to follow.

The International Disaster Response Expo (IDR) is driving innovation in the humanitarian, relief and emergency aid areas. Its launch event in November 2018 was so successful it has been nominated for best new show in the industry AEO awards.

Built on a core of the Government and INGO zone where IDR partnered with DFID, the British Red Cross, UNHCR and World Food Programme, IDR is the most important gathering of policy makers, logisticians, technology innovators, procurement specialists, suppliers and professionals in the humanitarian and response aid to collaborate and engage on different levels and sectors.

With exhibitors ranging from charity aid to enforced military equipment and solutions, IDR is an all encompassing event for resilience and continuity for businesses and communities. Confirmed exhibitors include Fischer Panda, Humanitarian Leadership Academy, HydraLight, Incident Control Room, SAM, SafeHaven, Toyota, Turmaks and many more.

The wider collaboration this year is built around an International Disaster Response Summit, bringing high level decision-makers together to examine challenges and strategies across the sector and share best practice so each organisation can take something back to make a real difference.

Complementing the Summit is the Seminar Theatre, looking at key issues including case studies, new technologies, thought leadership and much more, all aimed at enhancing the wider knowledge of those who deliver disaster response. Innovation will be at the heart of the event but practical innovation that makes a real difference delivered through capability workshops and demonstrations on stands.

Although separate and this year in a separate hall, The International Disaster Response Expo will benefit from the co-located International Security Expo with its cross over interests and 13,500 + visitors. Drones, communications, planning software, and elements of the Crisis Management and Business Continuity conference will all have cross-over relevance. Two events accessed through one free ticket.
