About our Offerings: Learning Formats

The DIA 2020 Global Annual Meeting brings together thousands of innovators from around the globe to discuss updates in the ever-changing field of life sciences.

DIA 2020

Providing education and creating an environment for learning is something that we take personally, which is why we are striving to offer an array of learning formats to diversify and customize your new virtual meeting for DIA 2020. From observing conversations that count to diving into problem-solving mode, we have a variety of learning styles covered.

  • Preconference Short Courses

    Treat yourself to a deep dive into your area of interest while networking with like-minded thought leaders.

    The day before the DIA 2020 virtual meeting kicks off, we will offer a full slate of half-day short courses. Short course topics span the drug development continuum, including data visualization, machine learning, combination products, regulatory strategy, leadership training, and more. Register for two half-day short courses and receive $100 off* your registration to the main meeting! 

    *Purchases must be made at the same time in order to receive the discount.

  • DIAmond Sessions

    Thought-provoking, worldwide issues deconstructed by acclaimed panelists representing multiple stakeholders from around the world in this growing ecosystem of life sciences.

    DIAmonds represent rare opportunities to listen to and engage with a variety of key stakeholders participating in open conversations on controversial topics such as: COVID-19, pandemic preparedness, diversity in clinical trials, international regulatory convergence, value and access, patient engagement, radical technologies, personalized medicine, real world evidence, and an FDA forum.

  • Concurrent Educational Sessions (Main Sessions)

    Traditional sessions dedicated to the “how to”, “so what”, “what’s new”, and specific innovations needed to keep up on your day-to-day.

    Running 60 minutes each, we have more than 100 sessions spanning 13 educational tracks within the LIVE virtual meeting and another 100+ sessions that will be On Demand for attendees to access on their own. Click into any of our classrooms, lectures, or panel discussions to review data, work flow, scaling, and so much more. These are traditional sessions designed to take you through methodology, the latest trends, hot issues, and in some cases, to provide foundational information.

    BONUS: DIA 2020 attendees will have access to viewing ALL of the live and On-Demand sessions. Missed a session or had trouble choosing which one to attend? No worries, we have you covered.

  • The Content Hub

    Have 30 minutes? Join in on a conversation and come away with new perspectives!

    This non-traditional learning/networking hybrid is specifically designed for small groups to connect with others that share the same interests. The 2020 meeting schedule will highlight a series of 30-minute facilitated conversations. Interact with community leaders and gain rapid insight in a subject of value.

  • Soapbox Session

    A 30-minute journey that will give you an “ah-hah!” moment you won’t be able to stop talking about.

    This session is modeled after a concept dating back to the 19th Century when soapboxes became improvised platforms used by a self-appointed, spontaneous, or informal speechmakers to provide an outlet for delivering opinions.

  • Innovation Theater

    Round out your on-site experience by taking in new products and services.

    Several of our exhibitors will be stepping away from their booths to showcase their products and services in their own 45-minute Innovation Theaters located in the Exhibit Hall.

  • Poster Sessions

    Virtually walk through a gallery of visually stimulating science and new best practice recommendations.

    DIA 2020 will have an e-poster area! View methodology (“how to”), case study, and research from a diverse group of scientific professionals who are actively involved in the discovery, development, and lifecycle management of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical devices, and healthcare-related products.

  • Community Round Tables

    The heart of the DIA 2020 virtual meeting is our community round table discussions. This is an opportunity for DIA Community members to host round table discussions inspired by sessions from within the DIA 2020 program. This allows DIA Community members to continue the dialogue and develop connections after a session has ended. Learn more about our Communities here.
