Due to the significant demand for our London GDP Symposium, we are pleased to announce that we will be running an additional event on 12 January 2016 in Glasgow.

If you are attending the December GDP Symposium in London, please do not take up a space on this event as the presented content will be an exact replica.

The event will be held at The Hilton Glasgow.

This is a must attend event for a small, medium or large wholesalers, managers and key staff members involved in procuring, supplying, exporting and storing medicines. The event will also be of interest to Responsible Persons.

To confirm your place immediately, register for this event by paying by credit card today!

The GDP symposium will provide latest information and guidance on changing legislation and increasing complexity in the distribution chain and offer a highly interactive ‘hands on’ learning experience; detailed workshop sessions will review actual sample deficiencies found by regulators and explain how to address and improve compliance in these critical areas.
