Outsourcing in Clinical Trials (OCT) Pacific Northwest 2019

Seattle is a beautiful city on Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest, surrounded by serene waters, mountains and evergreen forests, and also near thousands of acres of gorgeous parkland. As Washington State’s largest city, Seattle is home to a large tech industry, with Amazon and Microsoft headquartered in its metropolitan area, and the futuristic Space Needle, a 1962 World’s Fair icon, is its most capturing landmark. If you're a foodie, then Seattle is an exceptional place to visit with excellent seafood, a wide range of world cuisine, unique beer and coffee culture, and easy access to many unique restaurants. After some sightseeing and a few great meals, be sure to also check out this year’s Outsourcing in Clinical Trials Pacific Northwest 2019 conference.

For events such as these, it can quickly become overwhelming for a team of company attendees, particularly if limited in size. With so much potential ground to cover, making the most of your time and investment is key, so we’ve put a few tips together for planning out your time in Seattle:

Identify the right companies to meet

This conference is mainly geared towards addressing the concerns of trial sponsors based in the Pacific Northwest region and who are conducting clinical trials at either a local and global level. With a content-driven agenda, interactive networking sessions and a multitude of innovative service providers, this special event focuses on helping attendees find the best solutions to their most pressing clinical trial challenges. Even though this particular conference is small in size compared to some of the larger events we’ve recently covered, OCT Pacific Northwest provides a unique advantage of mingling with other companies on a very personal level, creating a concentrated atmosphere of close-knit experiences and building strong relationships that would otherwise be difficult to achieve at the larger venues. 

After listening to some speaker sessions and panel discussion, be sure to take some time and visit vendors in the exhibitor hall and discover new solutions that will speed up the progress of your study and ultimately lower the costs of your clinical trials. There will be plenty of exhibitors to learn about and discuss new technologies, current roadblocks, and potential improvements to your clinical trial pipeline. 

Find out who’s going

It can be somewhat difficult to determine exactly who’s going to be attending and exhibiting at conferences within smaller venues, but overall we believe the Outsourcing in Clinical Trials Pacific Northwest event will be a unique platform for the clinical trial and research cluster in the local region to network and collaborate in order to refine their outsourcing strategies. Selecting the right partners, managing your relationships with outsourcing service providers and targeting other stakeholders are all key factors in reducing the overall cost of your clinical trial. This conference will be packed with valuable resources and will offer attendees opportunities to develop practical strategies that they can implement to optimize their specific clinical trial program.  

Another great way to prepare for your journey through the exhibit area is to check out the Interactive Floor Plan to find specific companies that you’re interested in speaking with and lay out your plans for exploring the show.
