COVID-19 Impact on Q1 Productions Programming

COVID-19 (Coronavirus): Message from the CEO

On behalf of the entire team at Q1 Productions, thank you for your support over the last few months. Our mission has remained unchanged: to provide quality education and collaborative knowledge share to the life science and food and beverage industries. It is vital for you to stay up-to-date with regulatory changes and solutions to your industry’s top challenges so you can continue to innovate and bring safe products to market. We are committed to providing those resources to you. 

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 events, as well as travel to these programs. As communities begin to share plans to reopen, we want to take a moment to detail the impact on your upcoming event schedule.

Virtual Events

Your health and the health of all our employees, attendees, speakers and sponsors is our priority. Our team is working to customize a new virtual platform for upcoming events. Attendees can access sessions live and on-demand, participate in Q&A and network with participants. We are confident this platform will mimic our onsite experience closely and are committed to delivering a best-in-class experience to all participants. The schedule of these virtual meetings has evolved to deliver half-day modules designed to maximize engagement and knowledge retention. 


To complement our schedule of events for 2020, we have developed a series of webinars. With registration options that encourage team learning and connection, we are proud to offer this resource to teams looking for immediate learning opportunities.

In-Person Events

To ensure our approach to hosting in-person events is thorough and thoughtful, the following criteria must be in place for us to confidently host a conference on location:

  • The city in which the program is hosted is in the final stage of state-mandated distancing guidelines.
  • The meeting space and guest rooms meet our sanitization and disinfection criteria as defined by the standards set by the CDC and ECDC.
  • The room setup allows for physically distanced collaboration.
  • Registration is limited to ensure maximum space for each participant.
  • Face coverings and hand sanitizer are provided for all participants.
  • Food and beverage options eliminate contamination.


Please contact us if you have additional questions or concerns. We look forward to welcoming you to a program this year and meeting in person when things are safe.
