Saddle up, Partner. The accreditation industry event of the year is hitting the road! 

The A2LA Annual Conference (formerly the Tech Forum) has become one of the accreditation industry’s most essential multidiscipline events. It attracts attendees and speakers from around the world in various sectors, including automotive, cannabis, environmental, life sciences, calibration, biobanking, pharmaceutical, and more. 
This conference champions discussion and learning through:  

Program-Specific Technical Meetings 
Exceptional Networking 
Professional Development Sessions 
Member-Specific Meetings 
Tracks for Quality, OpEx, Calibration, Cannabis, Life Sciences, Environmental, and more! 

This year’s speakers are an engaging mix of global leaders, industry influencers, and emerging icons representing a diverse array of industries. Their sessions take a big-picture approach to all areas of accreditation and use creativity as the catalyst to drive change. Attendees benefit from enhanced thought leadership, deep learning, heightened networking, and greater community engagement. 

At the heart of this conference experience, you’ll find yourself orchestrating connections, building relationships, and meeting that person you didn't know you needed to meet. Every element is designed to maximize the opportunity for meaningful networking.
