We are pleased to announce that the winner of our recent conference quote competition is Rebecca Wilby.  Her quote was:

“The opportunity to learn from some of the most experienced people in the industry would be invaluable to my department and to the future development of our quality systems. The programme looks amazing, and I missed out last year so would love to come this year instead”

Thanks to everyone who sent an entry in.

We are still adding presentations to the start and end of our days.  The breakdown of our speakers and delegates (below) shows the true international flavour of the event.

The end of the earlybird discount is now only 3 weeks away, and we have released a video (below) with a look at what you can expect this year.  The programme is still filling up and we now have over 100 hours worth of content.  This content will be available after the event.  We are also putting the finishing touches to our conference networking website which will give all attendees the ability to chat in small groups - ideal for those lunch and end of the day catch ups with your network.

We are very happy to announce that The RQA International QA Conference, with the theme 20/20 Vision: A New Frontier, will be running virtually on the 10th - 12th November 2020.

We have chosen a platform that will offer delegates and exhibitors a range of benefits, such as:

  • Fantastic networking functions - chat rooms, 1:1 chats, discussions, Q&A during presentations, a networking lounge and more
  • Live presentations delivered throughout the three days
  • The ability to visit the Exhibition Area  for free and chat with a large range of companies
  • The access to all content on demand for 30 days after the event - this will be available within the conference platform
  • The abiity for delegates to have a 'virtual briefcase' so they can add any files, flyers, presentations etc to their briefcase to look through at a time to suit them.

We are trying to keep the conference in the traditional style as much as is possible - so will have GxP streams, plenary sessions, discussion groups and networking time as if you were at the conference in person.
