Attending industry events is a big part of any life sciences professionals’ calendar. Whether it’s to further your own education, attend training sessions or to meet other industry folk, these events are invaluable.
Quality conferences and events focused on life science quality assurance are a dime a dozen and big events are happening on every major continent this year. But with some of these events holding high price tags to attend, we know it’s important to pick the one with the most value.
With that in mind, we've scoured the internet and drew from our own knowledge and experience to come up with a list of must-attend conferences this year for the quality professional working in pharma, biotech, medical devices and the life sciences as a whole.
If you're also working in the clinical world, we compiled a list of the top 25 clinical conferences to attend in 2019.
