Which Clinical Trial Conference to Go to?

There are two major clinical trial conferences in the coming months that you may want to consider, one with an Asia focus and the other with an EMEA & Americas focus. Both feature an impressive list of speakers and a comprehensive list of topics on clinical trials.

There is also a set of events for early stage clinical trials sometime later on the year.
A recent survey conducted among Clinical Trial professionals has found that over 70% are planning to increase the number of clinical trials in the BRIC region. This makes it vital that decision makers keep up to date on clinical trials running in emerging regions. The same study also found that 62% of respondents consider China and India to hold the biggest opportunity for clinical trials.

Clinical Trial Supply Conference – EMEA and the Americas

The conference covers regulatory and legal aspects that include USPs Chapter 1079 and harmonisation issues. Other topic examples range from labelling, supply chain, forecasting and planning and IVR related issues, among many others.

Attendees usually come from clinical and drug supply functions, also include clinical trial managers, logistics and operations functions and a surprisingly large number of senior decision makers such as VPs and C-suite management.
