PHOENIX, Ariz. – Artificial intelligence has started to transform the way many organizations and vendors deal with business resilience. The topic quickly worked its way to the top of several discussions at DRJ Fall 2023: Focus on Resiliency in Phoenix, Sept. 10-13, at the J.W. Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa.

“All our AI sessions and breakouts were very well attended,” said Bob Arnold, Disaster Recovery Journal president. “It’s great when a new topic affects our space and we’re able to offer several sessions at our events.”

“Cyber, automation, third-party risk, and exercises are always big topics for us every year, but we’re excited when our speakers and vendors are able to introduce new techniques and constant innovation to the industry.”

DRJ Fall 2023 featured more than 450 paid attendees with another 200 board members, speakers, and vendors in Phoenix. On top of that, there were 150 virtual attendees. More than 450 people were also streaming general sessions live on YouTube each day of the conference.

Silver sponsors included Agility Recovery Services/Preparis, 4C Strategies, Converge Enterprise Cloud, eBRP Solutions, Flexential, Workplace Recovery Group, Kyndryl, Libelle, and Zerto. AlertMedia, Ascent Business Technology, Asfalis Advisors, Assured Data Protection, The Business Continuity Institute, CLDigital, Pronto Recovery, QS Consulting, Veoci, and Wolf & Company, P.C., were all bronze sponsors of the event.

“As always, I want to thank our great sponsors,” said Arnold. “We wouldn’t be able to do any of this without their support.”

DRJ Spring 2024: Unleashing the Power of Resilience, will take place March 17-20, 2024, at Renaissance Orlando – SeaWorld. This will be Disaster Recovery Journal’s 70th conference.
