Clinical Trials Europe 2019 Testimonials

Thank you to everyone who attended Clinical Trials Europe 2019!

We hugely appreciate all of the useful feedback we have received, and have collated some of your comments here:

“Really enjoyed the conference. Lots of interesting talks with thought provoking themes, time well spent!”

“It was a fantastic event which I thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish."

"During the past 18 months I have been to a number of congresses related to Clinical Research. I must say that CTE is the most comprehensive congress of them all. There were a lot of interesting topics, unfortunately I could only attend one session at the time."

"CTE was an excellent opportunity for our start-up to gain knowledge on [the] clinical trials industry."

"Easy to meet (companies and providers). The e-platform worked well and was easy to use. Very good representation of different suppliers that companies like us (small startup developing a pharma compound) need."

“Best conference of the year!  We met the right people.”

“Good event – well worth the investment.”

“This was a great event, well organised and one of the best events we have participated in 2019 – we are already looking forward to 2020!!”

Why Clinical Trials Europe?

Moving In Sync With The Changing Clinical Development Landscape

Over the past 17 years, Partnerships in Clinical Trials Europe (PCT) has transformed with the industry, providing a meeting place for all of the key stakeholders to participate in cutting edge discussion, hear from a wealth of industry perspectives, attend case study presentations tackling industry questions, and engage with unique networking opportunities, answering the information and partnering needs of the clinical trials community.

In this considerable period of time, we have seen a big shift from 'partnerships' in clinical trials being perceived purely as a CRO-sponsor relationship, to incorporating everyone from patients, patient groups, associations and academic institutions right through to regulators, technology innovators, consultants and more. 

This change has been reflected with a revolutionised Clinical Trials Europe Conference where, Informa Connect Life Sciences, in collaboration with and a diverse panel of senior level experts from across the industry, have worked together to produce a more focused and streamlined event, where all of the key elements from Partnerships & Outsourcing, Operations, Technology & AI, and Early Clinical Development are exposed in great detail.

Over the course of three days of stimulating discourse across seven focused conference streams, featuring; two plenary keynote sessions; the annual lifetime achievement award; an inspirational talk; ever-popular interactive panel discussions; and two energetic evening networking receptions; Clinical Trials Europe offers the opportunity for leaders from large, mid-sized, and small pharma, specialty pharma, biotech, vendor companies, patient groups and academic research centres, to come together to share best practices and discuss the new era of technology and patient-centric trials.

During a period of five months of research we spoke to over a 100 people from across the industry to identify the most important areas of change and innovation in order to incorporate the hottest topics into the agenda. Based on popular demand, this year's topics include; Managing, Establishing an Outsourcing Strategy and Partnership; Oversight; Regulatory Updates; Protocol Management; Change Management; Risk Management; Data Privacy; Site Management and Selection; Post-BREXIT; Patient Recruitment and Retention; Patient Engagement and Trust; Risk Based Monitoring (RBM); Real World Evidence (RWE); Site and Investigator Engagement; Virtual and Patient-Centred Trials; Artificial Intelligence (AI); Wearables and Sensors; Big Data; Digitalisation; and New Technologies.
