As any Clinical Research Organizer will tell you, outsourcing is big in this industry -- and in the current economy; it's only going to keep getting bigger. Pharmaceutical and biotech companies are going to great lengths to cut costs, while still meeting health and safety requirements. As the shift becomes more prominent, this year's "18th Annual Partnerships with CROs and Other Outsourcing Providers" Trade Show held at Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, Florida, April 28-30, 2009, now seems more relevant than ever. In a time when budgets are falling and the need for partnerships is on the rise, many sponsors and clinical professionals are turning to professional meeting planning companies such R-Events, an exhibitor at this year's Trade Show, to coordinate and execute key pharmaceutical meetings. Lesly Atlas, Program director for the show, explains why partnership is so important in the present and future economic environment.
"Sponsors are operating with fewer resources, and need to outsource more, but must do so with less money--and with a high number of product failures, available dollars for outsourcing are being threatened," says Atlas. "With the cost of doing business and budget constraints on the rise, clinical professionals need to do more with less, while still maintaining the highest levels of quality. With increasing regulatory demands and decreasing productivity, successful partnerships are essential."
To meet these demands, outsourcing providers must be well-informed about health and safety requirements for the pharmaceutical and clinical research industries. As specialists in planning investigator meetings and monitor meetings, R-Events will place their advanced understanding of PhRMA Ethics Codes, ABPI Codes of Practice, and GCP/ICH EU Directives on display at this year's trade show. By leveraging the company's extensive experience and established relationships with hotels and airlines, pharmaceutical companies and CROs can also meet budgetary requirements and free up time to focus on Research and Development. And even in this economy, it may be possible to get something for nothing. Visitors to R-Events' Booth #741 will be entered in a raffle to win an Apple MacBook Pro laptop.
The 18th Annual Partnerships with CROs and Other Outsourcing Providers Trade Show offers many opportunities for like-minded professionals to connect, hosting more than 1500 clinical operations, outsourcing and business development executives; and over 400 sponsor and supplier organizations, representing 28 countries -- all under one roof. With facilitated roundtable discussions and over 150 influential speakers, the event examines critical issues regarding various sourcing models, and helps establish best practices for outsourcing relationships. As always, the goal of the trade show is to provide a forum for fostering relationships in the industry, while assisting in the development of valuable products, delivered quickly, to patients who need them.
