The largest and most respected event for the biopharmaceutical, medical device, and related health care industries, is quickly approaching. On June 19-23, ERT, as well as approximately 550 other companies will be exhibiting at the highly regarded and valuable 47th DIA Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois.
DIA, a nonprofit and professional association comprised of nearly 18,000 members, provides “a global forum for knowledge exchange that fosters innovation to raise the level of health and well being worldwide.”1 The 2011 Annual Meeting presents expanded opportunities for people to contribute and learn, including forums, workshops, panels, symposia, and pre-conference tutorials. Highlighting hot topics in more than 25 interest areas from pre-clinical research through post marketing safety and surveillance, these sessions will positively impact innovation and ultimately patient care.
Attracting the biggest names in our industry, the Annual Meeting offers insightful information on the major trends and issues affecting the industry worldwide, as well as a myriad of key networking opportunities. With an anticipated 8,000 attendees from over 80 different countries, John Blakeley, Executive Vice President of ERT, commented that “The Annual Meeting is now the premier show within the industry. It is great to come and meet our customers; we have forged a lot of very strong relationships because of this show.” Attendees will include industry professionals, clinicians, patient representatives, and 20 plus regulatory agencies from all over the world. For ERT, attendance at this show is a must! Not solely for the purpose of meeting our customers, but also for our colleagues who are attending to reap the educational benefits regarding new developments in clinical research. This is a thought-leadership conference; therefore, there is no better place for ERT (as the market leaders in our industry) to exhibit.
This year, ERT will be showcasing our integrated solutions for Cardiac Safety, Respiratory and ePRO at booth #1335 in the exhibit hall. Here you will find our specialty coffee, which won the ClinPage award for “best consumable” at the 2009 DIA. Whether it’s your morning Espresso or Cappuccino to get the day off to a stimulating start, or an afternoon Iced Latte to cool you down, ERT will be serving up all of your favorite beverages. Also, look out for your chance to win the Apple iPad2!
Looking forward to seeing many of you there!References:
