Do you think they will go to all these preparations and then say Nevermind?
Yeah me neither.
Here's my very cynical take on this in green:
Know How To Respond
Recognize problems earlier. Make the right decision faster. Rush people through the decision making process, don't give them time to think, keep the sense of panic and fear heightened.
How to Plan
Make everyone a stakeholder. Spell out roles and responsibilities. Make sure the blame is so widespread that nobody can come back later and hang it around your neck.
Plan To Continue
Maintain cash flow and work flow. Keep the learning process alive. Make lots of money.
Protect Your Community
Know your resources. Test them against your toughest scenarios. Know who is going to give you problems and who is going to go along.

The summit draws on the success of the seven previous Bird Flu summits which featured as speakers several distinguished personalities such as Dr. David Nabarro, the United Nations Coordinator for Avian and Human Influenza, Alex Thiermann of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) and Dr. Wenqing Zhang of the WHO Epidemic and Pandemic Alert and Response. Seven previous summits? Hey it's time to cash in people.
Well-known emergency responders, heads of hospitals from around the world, and hog/swine industry leaders will speak in this summit. Ironic they should say so.

Swine Flu will be the vehicle to finally Go Fascist, to combine business and government interests once and for all as a necessary response to this manufactured crises which will be passed off as a plausibly deniable natural disaster. Who could have predicted? Nobody except all the people who have been predicting at the top of their lungs.
Importantly, the brochure highlights that participants to the 7th Bird Flu Conference have "Decision Making Authority." Thirty percent of attendees make the final decision, and thirty five percent make recommendations to the final decision maker. It's about being in charge, and the conference will teach these participants to "make the right decision faster." The right decisions made quickly will lead to reward$. They want decision makers at the conference so they can show them what decisions to make while encouraging them in group think and risk-spreading behavior, which is how they will protect themselves from responsibility; and the decision makers want to be at the conference so they can cash in, survive and prosper from the Swine Flu pandemic, all the while burnishing their credentials for having attended the International Swine Flu Summit in the first place. This is the establishment in action fluffing itself. It's group evil basically, and a lot of decent people will get swept up in it, which is the sad part because many people just don't understand how they're being manipulated.
I mean, this is simply marketing. Here are the top five reasons for business people to attend the summit:
