General Information about our Annual Meetings

The ISIA Annual Meeting is a chance for ISIA members, regulatory agencies, and others in the serum industry to meet and discuss current issues facing the industry.  Our guest speakers come from all over the world to bring ISIA up to date on current and new serum industry initiatives.  We also have speakers from many of the global regulatory agencies who provide the latest changes in regulatory policy and take questions from our attendees.  

You can count on the meeting addressing:

  • Regulatory matters that are impacting the industry now and in the future
  • Industry trends from a supplier and user's prospective
  • New programs/ technologies that are driving improvements 
  • Key opinion leaders talking about the dynamics of serum and related industries
  • Serum based scientific breakthroughs that drive change for the better

In addition, ISIA presenters from or strategic planning teams update the attendees on our initiatives undertaken on behalf of the serum industry.

These updates will include:

  • The ISIA Traceability Certification Program and it's impact on, and use by customers and regulatory agencies
  • Our progress in standardizing the terms, testing methods and processes used in the industry
  • The regulatory topics that the team is addressing that underscore current and future issues.

The best part of all this is that as an interested party you can participate in the meeting at a reduced cost.  A large majority of our members attend the Annual Meeting each year.  Our members are our best ambassadors and will be happy to discuss membership benefits with you if you want to "test the waters" before taking the step to join.  Our annual meetings rotate continents - the Americas, Europe, Asia, & Australia - so that we encompass global input and interest at the meetings.

We think it is important for our attendees, to be able to connect and network with each other in a less formal setting.  One of the highlights of the meeting is our annual receptions and dinner.  The event is usually held at a restaurant  within walking distance of our meeting venue to make make going to this event easy for our attendees.  This is an excellent opportuntiy to meet others from our group in a more relaxed setting and have a wonderful dinner as well.

So join us next year, and every year, to stay connected and informed.
