Outsourcing in Clinical Trials Southern California 2022




Arena International are delighted to announce the return of Outsourcing in Clinical Trials Southern California this September for its 9th Annual event!

Our 2022 programme boasts two full streams;

  • Clinical Operations & Outsourcing
  • Clinical Trial Technology & Innovation

At the past 2021 event attendees heard from the likes of AbbVie, Pfizer, Arena Pharmaceuticals, Bristol Myers Squibb, Daré Bioscience and many more. Mary Syto, Director of Early Clinical Development at Bristol Myers Squibb, led the Clinical Operations stream on the first day, whilst James Wabby, Executive Director of Regulatory Affairs & Combination Products/Device at AbbVie, headed up the Innovation stream.

Whether you are interested in debating the long term impacts COVID-19 will have on the future of clinical trials, or you want to get stuck into a discussion on best practices for strong CRO communications and building trust, there is something for everyone.

With a more interactive and hands on agenda including debates, workshops, roundtables, fireside chats and more, this event will create an environment where clinical trial teams from across all sizes of sponsor and vendor can work together to manage demands while ensuring patients are safeguarded at all stages.

If you are interested in taking part as an attendee or speaker please get in touch!

See you in La Jolla on 28th & 29th September 2022!










  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
