Menu Back to Global-Labeling-Conference


As a direct and sole result of the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and due to circumstances beyond our control, DIA has decided to change the format of the upcoming Global Labeling Conference from "face-to-face" (in-person) to entirely virtual.

Originally scheduled April 20-21, DIA's Global Labeling Conference WILL be held on those dates in an entirely virtual meeting format, with both speakers and attendees participating remotely via a digital platform.

The Global Labeling Conference will remain an interactive, multi-day event that brings together professionals in medical product labeling and related disciplines, as they work to develop and manage clear and accurate labeling information for the safe and effective use of prescription drugs, biologics, and medical devices. This year, DIA will accomplish that goal via a live, digital platform.

Additional details for speakers, attendees, and exhibitors are forthcoming. For more information, please review the list of Frequently Asked Questions.

Short Course Registrants: You will receive a separate communication shortly about how Short Courses will be handled in this new format.

DIA's mission—to work across the healthcare continuum to ensure patients receive the therapies they need—is more essential than ever during times like these. DIA acknowledges the time and effort that has gone into speaker and attendee planning and preparing for DIA's Global Labeling Conference and trusts that everyone will understand the need to respond to current, evolving health concerns in a responsible manner. These precautions are being taken to ensure the health and safety of our entire, global DIA family.

DIA is committed to exploring all possible avenues to provide a productive setting where stakeholders can engage with the latest technology, hear from key thought leaders and make the connections that drive the health care ecosystem forward. We look forward to providing you with a fulfilling virtual meeting experience and appreciate your patience as we work through technical requirements and any potential challenges.

Thank you for your continued support of DIA and our global mission.

April 20-21: Conference

DIA’s Global Labeling Conference is designed for professionals in medical product labeling and related disciplines as they work to develop and manage clear and accurate labeling information for the safe and effective use of prescription drugs, biologics, and medical devices. The efforts of these professionals are key to providing essential information needed by providers, patients, and payers to make decisions about product access, prescription, and use. Influences such as digital technology, patient centricity, evolving product classes, and changing regulations require the use of informed, systematic approaches throughout the labeling cycle to ensure the development and availability of current, compliant information in all regions where products are marketed.

This conference provides a forum for exchange among regulators and industry peers to update their knowledge of key local and global labeling policies and to examine the impact of changes on regulatory compliance. Most importantly, through interactive discussions with expert panels and peer-to-peer exchange, participants will share approaches, processes, and tools to ensure the availability of effective labeling content meeting the needs of patients, consumers, and prescribers.
