By Meeting Professionals International | Nov 11, 2019

The Maxwell Hotel, New York City
8.30 am – 3:00 pm EDT

IPCAA is proud to host a compliance update for US-based meeting planners involved in planning and hosting international activities for the pharmaceutical industry. 

We value and support IPCAA’s efforts to host an event that will offer collaborative education on similarities and differences in healthcare compliance regulations in Europe and the U.S. We commend their efforts to offer a platform to “discuss opportunities” amongst those topics.  By working together we can create a better understanding of our mutual reporting requirements. I encourage anyone who is a medical meeting professional to attend this historic event.”

This event is designed to provide a high-level overview of the differences between US and European congresses. It will also tackle the complexities of healthcare meeting compliance for meetings held by US-based stakeholders - societies, companies or PCOs - outside the US, as well as for international visitors attending US-based events. Experts from IPCAA will use case studies to cover hot topics like GDPR, proper approval channels, national limits, meal caps, and much more.
The event will take place at The Maxwell Hotel in New York City on Thursday, January 30, 2020, running from 8.30am – 3.00pm EDT. For employees of IPCAA Member Companies, participation is included in their membership. For all other delegates the cost to attend the event is USD 190. Hotel rooms available for USD 159 per night.
