9th CMO Quality Oversight & Risk Management Summit

September 23 @ 8:00 am - September 24 @ 3:45 pm



9th CMO Quality Oversight & Risk Management Summit


Most life science companies are partnering with external organizations that have specialized expertise to develop and manufacture their products in an effort to streamline operations. As with any partnership, there is risk and uncertainty that comes into play when utilizing a contract manufacturing organization.

Sponsors are continually looking for new and efficient ways of managing risk and ensuring the best quality standards. CMO selection is another process that is continuously improved and reevaluated based on the marketplace and a sponsor’s need for production. It is critical to assess potential vendors before signing a contract and beginning a partnership.

The 9th CMO Quality Oversight & Risk Management Summit will optimize the collaboration between sponsors and vendors by addressing the most pressing topics including data integrity, quality systems, relationship management, risk management and more.

Conference Highlights

  • Three Main Focus Areas: Expert speakers will discuss an array of topics focused on risk management, stakeholder relationship, and quality oversight.
  • “Lessons Learned” Series: These sessions will provide a fresh take on case studies, offering attendees real stories and the outcomes from experts who played significant roles in these projects.
  • CMO Showcase: An invaluable opportunity for sponsors to get their most pressing questions answered while CMOs and CDMOs present the scope of their resources by detailing their facilities, capabilities, services, and software to pharma and biotech’s key decision makers.
  • Panel Discussions: We’ve expanded the program to feature two panel discussions, analyzing outsourcing models, and improving vendor relationships, in order to increase touchpoints between the speakers and audience members
  • Benchmark Your Organization: Discuss critical challenges and best practices with the expert speaking faculty as well as your peers.
