(Chicago, IL) – By popular request, Q1 Productions will be hosting the inaugural Pharmaceutical Supplier Quality Assurance Conference July 21-22, in Arlington, Virginia, fulfilling the demand for a tailor-made meeting for supplier quality assurance professionals within the pharmaceutical industry.  Pharmaceutical quality assurance executives are invited to take part in peer-to-peer networking, high-level information sessions and idea sharing during the two day conference and take away immediate deliverables to give their companies a competitive advantage.


The conference, focusing on implementing successful risk assessment practices and methods for supplier qualification, will offer attendees in-depth discussions with fellow pharmaceutical professionals addressing the biggest concerns surrounding the industry.  A wide variety of speakers, including Michael Daly of Valeant, Glen Goff of Eisai, Dana Blobner of Ultragenyx Pharmaceuticals, and Shellyanne Sealy-Wilder of Merck are scheduled to conduct interactive presentations and panel discussions through the two-day meeting.


“Supplier quality teams are vital because their role is to ensure that raw materials provided to the facility are produced under Good Manufacturing Practices,” said Goff.  “Purchasing and the supplier quality team have to have a good working relationship.”
