Steelhenge Consulting, a leading provider of business continuity and crisis management consultancy, has confirmed its plans to exhibit at the 2010 BCM World Conference and Exhibition. The exhibition, organised by the Business Continuity Institute, will be held at the Novotel London West in Hammersmith, London. The exhibition is free to attend for both conference delegates and a wide range of other visitors with an interest in business continuity, risk management and operational resilience.

"We're delighted to announce our plans to exhibit at this year's BCM world conference and exhibition, as last year's show was such a success," said Isobel Nicholas, Director of Communications for Steelhenge. "The 2009 event was the first year that BCI organised it as a World Conference after previously hosting a symposium. The elevation to world conference and exhibition has made a huge impact, and we now consider it to be the major business continuity event in our industry," Isobel continued. "The BCI is driving an impressive global development programme to widen awareness of business continuity issues for practitioners and businesses around the world, and we are seeing the benefits now."
When asked if there are plans to focus on any specific aspects of Steelhenge's business continuity management services at the exhibition, Isobel replied; "Actually, quite to the contrary we're keen to demonstrate the breadth and depth of our offering within business continuity management as we believe that is unique in our industry. The BCI takes a holistic approach to BCM, advocating the view that there are multiple areas of an organisation that need protection, and our offering is in line with that concept," Isobel explained. "As a result, we'll be showcasing not only our BCM services, but also our crisis and incident management services including media and crisis communications, our expertise in ICT continuity and information security and the extensive experience we have in emergency planning and operational risk management."
"Business continuity management is still an evolving discipline," Isobel continued, "and it's a new concept for many businesses. It's moving away from being focused on IT disaster recovery alone to becoming an organisational issue that deals with multiple business areas. One of the reasons the BCM World Conference and Exhibition is ideal is because the conference is designed to cater for people relatively new to the subject right through to those who are very experienced practitioners. We're really looking forward to the event," Isobel concluded, "and anticipate it being a great success."
