Upcoming ABPCO roundtable featuring AstraZeneca expert to address Pharmaceutical compliance and medi

The Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) will host its next roundtable event at One Wimpole Street, home of the Royal Society of Medicine on Tuesday 7th July (7.30am-10am).

The event will look at organising medical and scientific events that comply with pharmaceutical regulations with expert speakers Joanna Lawlor, Global Events Director at AstraZeneca, and Mark Handforth of Compliant Venues. The speakers will explore best practice, sponsorship DOs and DON’Ts, changes to regulations, risks and current challenges.

“Our roundtable events have been a great success recently but this promises to be something special for those attending,” comments Nicole Leida, joint-chair of ABPCO. “We have two expert speakers in Joanna and Mark and we hope to address everything the attendees need to know about medical and scientific events but are perhaps too scared to ask.”

The event will take the form of an interactive forum with plenty of time for audience participation and a Q&A session. A complimentary breakfast will also be served during registration with a chance to visit the facilities at One Wimpole Street at the end of the event.

This roundtable event will run early in the morning so those attending can then head to The Meetings Show at Olympia, London afterwards. ABPCO joint-chairs Nicole Leida and Caroline Windsor will also be taking part in a panel session discussion regarding meeting planning as an evolving function at the Association Meetings Conference on Monday 6th July.

Those interested in attending this session or the roundtable event the following day can visit for further information and booking procedures.

ABPCO is the UK’s leading organisation for professional conference and event organisers, industry associates and those studying for, or seeking a career in the conference and meetings industry. For more information about ABPCO visit
