Imago Trade Shows, a division of Atlanta-based Imago Productions, Inc., and BNP Media, have joined forces to launch a new trade show serving the Disaster Reconstruction Industry. The National Disaster Reconstruction Expo (NDRExpo) will launch June 17-18, 2009 at the Earnest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. The NDRExpo was developed to unite the numerous vertical markets associated with disaster reconstruction preparation, response, recovery, and rebuilding.
From financial loss mitigation and
business continuity to disaster restoration and remediation and community
rebuilding and construction – including HVACR of course, the disaster
reconstruction industry encompasses over 50 industry segments represented by
over 75 associations and organizations. The majority of these vertical markets

are served by the same manufacturers, distributors and service providers.
The NDRExpo will be the first event
to consolidate the disaster reconstruction industry. NDRExpo offers disaster
management professionals the opportunity to explore each other’s capabilities
and challenges with the goal of minimizing the loss of life and property

Evan Kessler, publisher ofRestoration & Remediationmagazine, a BNP Media publication.
“We surveyed the industry and were

see in one setting. Our goal is to create a forum for these individuals that
creates opportunities for greater cohesiveness of response and recovery
