Public interest in regulatory procedures and outcomes of the professional discipline make headlines. This impacts how regulatory professionals will conduct their practice.

At Infonex, we talk to people in leadership positions. We hear from investigators, registrars, and legal counsel, to name a few. This gives us insight into trends that affect the landscape of the field. These are the people who are in charge of the diplomacy of transparency in regards to public interest. A key trend that will be part of our 2018 conference is maintaining privacy rights for all parties. All the while respecting the public demand for trust and transparency.

A reason #RegPro2018 conferences are successful is in relation to the regulatory profession, itself. Innovation in regulation is key to respond our changing society. There is always something to learn, there are always choices to improve. Our delegates and speakers are the folks that keep up with the latest in best practices. Hearing from industry leaders and up-and-comers keeps the material fresh, and we make sure our information is of-the-moment.

Regulatory Professionals 2018 in Toronto, developed by Infonex, will define the field by sharing knowledge from leaders and experts - your peers. Our delegates, like you, are looking for evidence-based, practical strategies. With Infonex REGPRO 2018 it means the hands-on information you will not get anywhere else. Register today!
