Outsourcing in Clinical Trials Nordics 2021




After the challenges of 2020 with the Covid-19 pandemic, this is the unmissable event that the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device communities need to come together and discuss strategies for operational success in clinical trials.

With all the latest content, and a big focus on the latest regulations and technology, the conference will offer an unparalleled opportunity to hear in-depth talks from the likes of the Danish Medicines Agency, LEO Pharma, and TÜV SÜD, as well as C-level and senior experts from the Nordic region.


The event will feature talks and interactive sessions on the hottest topics of the year including:

  • The future of EU Clinical Trial Regulation: opportunities to streamline multinational trial approval - Lene Grejs Petersen, Senior Advisor, Danish Medicines Agency
  • Innovations and regulations in digital health, connected devices, and MedTech - Holti Kellezi, Director of Business Development & Regulatory Affairs, Dawn Health
  • The Notified Body perspective: the future of drug-device combinations with the upcoming Medical Device Regulation (MDR) - Dr. Christiana Hofmann, Teamlead non-active medical devices, Article 117 DACH & Nordics, TÜV SÜD


Outsourcing in Clinical Trials will take place as scheduled on 20-21 October in Copenhagen, Denmark. Arena International is closely monitoring the development of COVID-19 and any potential impact on the event. The safety of our attendees is our top priority and we are following guidance from the World Health Organisation, national governments and health authorities.  We are taking several precautionary measures including the below and ask that attendees support us by practicing good hygiene.

Arena Events – COVID 19 Safety protocols

Measures to Protect
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

    Items of PPE, such as face masks, gloves and eye screens, will be used by staff if appropriate, in line with local government and health authority advice. We strongly advise delegates to bring and wear a mask at our events, unless you are unable to do so due to health reasons.

    First aid

    Delegates at our events will have access to a qualified first aider. Participants will be asked not to attend if they are feeling unwell, and teams will follow local health authority guidance on detecting and managing anyone who shows symptoms of COVID-19.

    Trace and contact

    If necessary, Arena Events staff will work with local authorities and venues to trace and contact participants at our events, subject to local privacy regulations.

Cleaning and sanitising
  • Enhanced cleaning

    Our venue partners will undertake enhanced cleaning before, during and after our events, to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness. This includes continuous sanitisation throughout the course of an event, with a focus on high-touch areas such as door handles, restrooms and food and beverage areas.

    Personal hygiene

    We will provide hand sanitising stations throughout the event space, and will be encouraging all participants to regularly wash and disinfect their hands.

Distancing onsite
  • Registration

    Our events will make best use of technology to minimise queuing and contact during the registration process, and use PPE to make sure the touch points of badges and registration are as safe as possible.

    Physical contact

    We will request that participants avoid physical contact, such as handshakes and embraces, promoting alternative ways to greet business partners. The exchange of printed materials, such as business cards and sales brochures, will also be discouraged, with digital alternatives recommended.

    Physical distancing

    Our events will maintain a density of participants in line with local authority regulations and venue or other relevant guidance. This will be managed through one or more control measures, such as pre-show communications to participants, a one-way traffic system (venue applicable), on-site signage and floor markings, and staff to help guide delegates.

    Food and beverage stations

    The event teams will work closely with venue partners to employ the highest standard of food safety, minimising self-service buffets in favour of pre-packaged food options. If any queuing is anticipated, social distancing will be maintained through the use of floor markings and relevant signage.
