RQA Annual Conference 2018 - Manchester

31 October to 2 November 2018
Manchester Central

RQA’s 2018 Annual Conference - ‘Data and Quality: Is the tail wagging the dog?’ - will be held at the award-winning Manchester Central from 31 October to 2 November. 

This year’s conference will include presentations, case studies, clinics, debates and, for the first time, all-new ‘fringe’ sessions, where more informal discussions will be held in a roundtable environment.

Spread over two and a half days, over 50 unique and information packed sessions are planned. 

The programme includes representation by the MHRA, as well as a range of presentations on hot topics such as Data Integrity and GDPR. 

Delegates will have ample opportunity to network with fellow attendees and over 30 exhibitors, with the Gala Dinner headlining the social side of the conference on Thursday evening.

The conference has got CPD Accreditation – we will appropriate 6.5 points for Wednesday, 7 points for Thursday and 3 points for Friday (16.5 points for full delegates).

  • The RQA event is an important one. Being part of an authority, I really think it's an added value to have the possibility to discuss with the professionals that are every day involved in ensuring the quality across the various GxPs.

  • The length of the presentations was just perfect, as well as the blocks of three presentations and a break. I was not able to identify a single weak presentation or speaker.

  • Great conference, lively interactions and enriching experience.
