14th WRIB Virtual
Join 14th WRIB, a Secure ID Personalized Virtual forum Where Regulators and the Industry Interact to work together in the field of Bioanalysis, Biomarkers, Immunogenicity, Gene Therapy & Vaccines.
14th WRIB Virtual will be delivered from June 15-29, 2020, a few hours each day, to ensure the hours fit with global attendees as much as possible, also to avoid having too many hours a day.
Note: To prevent unauthorized distribution of the conference material, only registered attendees can access the conference platform. The platform uses the most advanced technology to stop non-authorized sharing/login, either by kicking out when more than one login occurs at the same time, or completely blocking the account if there are multiple login from different IP address (even if login occurs at different time).
A survey was conducted recently and an overwhelmingly majority of attendees has selected Virtual instead of In-Person due to the below concerns:
- No possibility to have a vaccine for mass distribution in 2020 - risk of safety to travel and gather
- Inevitable 2nd wave in the Fall/Winter 2020 - risk of safety to travel and gather
- Impact on economy and potential budget cuts - risk of losing this once-a-year learning opportunity
- Company travel restriction and conferences considered "non-essential" - risk of losing this once-a-year learning opportunity
As many wrote in the survey, WRIB has become the best and most important platform for bioanalytical community to come together for new ideas and discussions of scientific and regulatory topics with regulators, we will continue to keep this reputation in 2020 through a detailed planning and the Best, Most Secure and Personalized Virtual Conference Technology.
In fact, we think you will enjoy an even more effective, productive and personalized learning and interacting experience at 14th WRIB WRIB Virtual:

Unfortunately this will not be possible this year, but you will receive a gift card from your favourite restaurant of choice for each Main Workshop DAY and Specialized/Training Session you registered ($50 per Workshop DAY and Per Specialized/Training Session accumulatively).

As one of the attendees mentioned in the survey, science and information sharing shouldn't be put on hold. With the good planning and advanced technology nowadays we can still "come together" to learn, to share ideas and exchange knowledge, especially now when it's most needed!
