COVID-19 Impact on Q1 Productions Programming

COVID-19 (Coronavirus): Message from the CEO

Our mission is to provide quality education and collaborative knowledge share to the life science and food and beverage industries, making it clear that we must do all we can to reduce the spread of illness.

We have been carefully monitoring advice from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to understand the risks associated with upcoming conferences and events, as well as travel to these programs.

Q1 Productions has made the responsible decision to postpone March and April meetings with the exception of three programs, which will be hosted virtually. At this time, no changes have been made to any event scheduled after May 1, 2020. We have listed the programs impacted below and their new dates; you can visit each event webpage for more information. We will continue to monitor the situation and update this page accordingly.

It is vital for you to stay equipped with solutions to the industry’s biggest challenges so you can continue to remain innovative and bring safe products to market. We look forward to supporting you in hosting these programs later in the year.

Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by the virus. Please contact us if you have additional questions or concerns. Our frequently asked questions may be accessed here.
