The American Bio Recovery Association is celebrating 22 years of defining excellence in professional education and distinguished strength in the field of Bio Recovery. Over the past 22 years ABRA has hosted an annual meeting and many thought it was for members or Americans only. In order to change this perception and grow the event, we are re-branding the conference as the International Bio Recovery Summit.  We want everybody to feel welcome.  Come and learn with us. 

Over the past 22 years, ABRA has attracted a multi-specialty audience and provided a well-defined educational experience for all participants involved in the Bio Recovery, CTS, and the Forensic Restoration Industry. Attendees include those from Restoration and remediation companies where Bio Recovery has a primary role in their business and new comers to the industry who wish to learn. Each year, our distinct domestic and international attendees experience the chance to expand their horizons by learning about new and evolving trends in the field. Participants learn from one another in an environment that truly supports camaraderie. ABRA believes in providing high quality, creative learning modalities and everyone is welcome. 

The education sessions during this conference allows for immediate and personal interaction with active members, speakers and affords attendees the ability to take an active role in live face to face discussions among peers in the industry. ABRA recognizes the momentum of the growth and ever-changing needs within the industry. Our conference series have included a High Hazard Decontamination Workshops, Infection Control Awareness Training and a highly respected speaker line up covering topics such as: Data Defense Cyber Liability, United States Department of Homeland Security on Biological Terrorism,  Incident Command/Resposne, Trauma Cleaning, Forensic Entomology, Business Emergency Response Training, Delusional Parasitosis and welcomed very special guests from the DEA on the Opioid crisis and the cleanup of Fentanyl and Carfentanil.  Our speaker line up this year is just as strong.  Please click on the links below for information on some the key presenters.  More to come.
