“This year’s ISPE Annual Meeting was an unforgettable week! With 3,000+ attendees for the week, it was one of the largest Annual Meetings ISPE has ever held. Everyday, a crowd of people would head to the Philadelphia Convention Center for the various educational sessions hosted by ISPE members from all around the globe. Throughout the day and during the networking breaks, attendees were also able to view all the booths and snag some great swag.
Our amazing Delta PM team, including Scott Kobayashi, Feras Al-Zubaidy, Aaron Hubbell, Sumaiya Reza, and myself, hosted a booth and met a plethora of fabulous people! We had interesting conversations with SMEs, managers, specialists, and more within the Biotechnology industry. We gave out tons of swag, and everyone enjoyed the different games we had each day, like Bean Bag Toss, Target Shooting, and Ball Toss. All players had a chance to win our awesome stainless-steel water bottles and portable battery chargers, and we also had a Grand Raffle Prize for a $250 Visa Gift Card — the lucky winner was Alycia Fulton from Blue Bird Bio! Congratulations to all the winners, and hope to see you at next year’s ISPE Annual Meeting in Las Vegas!”

“I joined ISPE several years ago, but only this year did I attend my first Annual Meeting and Expo — and wow, was I missing out! This event was an opportunity to catch up with some old friends and colleagues, make new connections, and learn more about the innovator companies and vendors, who are driving some incredible advances in this industry. The spirit of collaboration is alive and strong in ISPE, proven by the collegial conversations between individuals and companies in the Expo hall and the various networking events.
My high-point of the Meeting was flying the flag for Delta in the 5K run to benefit the American Diabetes Association. 90 runners and walkers braved a chilly drizzle to run along the scenic Schuylkill River at 6:30 in the morning, and I'm happy to report that I made Delta proud by coming across the finish line in first place.
I look forward to continue building connections through my local Boston Area ISPE Chapter, and can't wait for ISPE 2019 in Las Vegas!”

“The 2018 ISPE Annual Meeting and Expo brought in personnel with a worldwide scope in Quality, Science, and Engineering in the Biopharmaceutical field. We had some excellent conversations, including discussions around Gene and Cell Therapy, Construction Management and new facilities, and Artificial Intelligence, and saw new business systems and approaches from the Expo that will be beneficial to building quality and compliance in the industry.
Delta PM had the great pleasure of meeting with colleagues in the Life Science industries and is excited about future partnerships ahead. With Delta PM's stance in the industry with professionals in Commissioning, Qualification, Validation, and Quality, we bring the best in consulting services. We look forward to connecting with you further and seeing the great things we can accomplish together!”
