3rd Compliance Workshop
Park Plaza Riverbank, London Wednesday 13th December 2023
The Compliance Workshop concept?
This informal gathering of industry colleagues dives into the evolving detail behind the code and its application to meetings and events. Speakers, moderators and panellists work with attendees to understand how the code is changing and how meetings and events are adapting to this reality, applying the data to the pre, peri and post operational delivery of any healthcare meeting. This workshop is all about the devil in the detail that is not generally available at any other meeting focused on the healthcare sector.
This workshop is supported by the team at Park Plaza Hotels.
Foster peer-to-peer problem-solving, networking, and the sharing of efficiency solutions with the wider meetings and events community. Focus for this workshop is the development of a meeting compliance checklist, that can be shared publicly, improving the correct application of industry codes of practice and company policies to meetings in the sector.
This workshop’s content is intended for meeting professionals and organisations involved in planning healthcare sector meetings, subject to codes of practice. Corporate organisations, agencies, DMC’s, venues, destinations, operational teams implementing compliance into operational processes, corporate meeting professionals, medical society meeting professionals, professional conference organisers, medical communications professionals with an interest in meeting planning.
