"iiBIG is developing an ambitious plan to expand our offering of practical, hands-on conferences for clinical research practitioners in a cost- and time-efficient, day-and-a-half format in regional markets," said Don Buford, CEO of iiBIG. "Beginning with our Clinical Study conference, our goal is to provide critical training and learning opportunities for clinical research practitioners whose organizations might not otherwise be able to budget the time-out-of-office and cost to send more than a few personnel to expensive major markets to attend multiple-day conferences."
Early-bird registration rates are offered through February 28, 2014. Detailed conference information, agenda, and other updates can be found at http://www.iibig.com/ClinicalStudy.
