DIA 2020

DIA 2020 Global Annual Meeting

Washington, DC | June 14-18

We stand at the precipice of healthcare, looking out on the possibilities of extraordinary therapies and cures. To bring them to fruition, we must face complex, global, and interconnected challenges.

The remarkable convergence of science, technology, and policy makes this a critical time of focus. With the help of DIA Community members, the DIA 2020 Global Annual Meeting will take that focus and direct it at the opportunities for the future of healthcare.

Join more than 7,000 peers, colleagues, stakeholders, and DIA Community members from across the world. DIA 2020 is the intersection of science, healthcare, and regulation, with no barriers, just a catalyst for thoughtful dialogue and debate. View the preliminary program and register now!

DIA offers several exclusive opportunities for DIA Community members to contribute to the meeting.


Content Hubs

This is a non-traditional learning/networking hybrid specifically designed for small groups of attendees to connect face-to-face with Community leaders and other attendees that share the same interests. The Content Hub is designed for 30-minute short presentations and seating for an intimate audience of 30 people. The Content Hub is informal with a mix of different styles of seating to encourage relaxed conversations between the audience and the leader. A vital component of the Content Hub is the opportunity for the audience to participate in active Q&A.

Community Round Tables

Community Round Table Discussions are 60-minute DIA Community-facilitated discussions that are inspired by sessions within the DIA 2020 program.  This is an opportunity to allow Community members to continue the dialogue at a reserved space after a session is over. DIA will coordinate and invite session speakers to attend the Round Tables, but regardless of their availability, Round Tables will be hosted.

Call for Community Round Table Discussions Opens February 3.
