Emergency Operations Center (EOC) & Disaster Response Operations conference is an unique event and opportunity designed to strengthen over all Emergency Response Management by using robust EOC mechanism which works as “universal interface” connecting resources i.e. – information/data base, event inputs, technology, experts, practitioners, inventory, service, OEMs and product suppliers together at one place during emergency management. The International EOC conference offers opportunity to understand intricacies of "unified and coordinated" national approach to "incident management" involving multiple agencies through state-of-the-art EOCs.
