3rd European QA Conference 2019

#EUQA19 News


1st May 2019

Bookings now open

Delegate bookings were opened up on our website a couple of weeks ago and we have had a steady stream of bookings since then.

We are running a social media sharing competition where delegates can win a free place at this year's conference if they share our post (if you have already booked you can still enter into the draw, we will refund any fees you may have paid).

New for this year - we have created a social media assets page so delegates, exhibitors and speakers have assets to share with followers on social media.

There are still a few exhibition stands available for sale.

Nearly there....

The Programme Committee met today and the programme is nearly complete.  We are happy to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr Phil Hammond.  Phil has been working in general practice for over two decades and by contrast has been nominated for the prestigious Perrier award at the Edinburgh Festival twice as well as being a writer for Private Eye’s acclaimed medical column since 1992.

He qualified as a GP in 1991 and is currently working at a specialist NHS centre for children and adolescents with chronic fatigue syndrome/ME. As Private Eye’s medical correspondent, he campaigns for patient empowerment and open data in healthcare.

Full details of the programme will be available in the upcoming weeks, but will include representation from regulators from all over Europe, as well as dedicated streams and clinics in Academia, Animal Health, Computing, GCP, GLP, GMP, Medical Devices and PV.   

We will soon be annoucing details of a competition to win a free full delegate place at the conference.  Stay tuned to this page for further information.

  • The Auditing Course (2 days)
  • A Masterclass in PV Auditing (2 days – to be based on Practical Pharmacovigilance Auditing)
  • Implementing GCLP (2 days)
  • Manageable Risk; Focusing on what matters in Clinical Trials (1 day Seminar)

We have also finalised the delegate fees for the event.

Exhibitor, sponsor and advertising opportunities

We are delighted to announce that on the first day of selling opportunities for the 3rd EU QA Conference we sold 14 stands, which has now gone up to 16. We have also sold the main sponsorship package, lanyard sponsorship, pen sponsorship and notepad sponsorship, so we are well on the way.

There will be a Programme Committee teleconference today where the programme will be further finalised.

We have created the first draft of the delegate brochure and are working on getting information into it as the programme becomes more complete.
