It’s back to school and summer is coming to an end – which can only mean one thing: the fall Onsemble Conference has begun.
This year we return to the Windy City of Chicago at the lovely Renaissance Chicago Downtown right on the Chicago River. This modern hotel is a beautiful backdrop for our 3-day learning extravaganza. Welcoming old friends and making new acquaintances, this Onsemble Conference is the biggest yet. More than 220 clinical research professionals from 64 organizations have gathered to share their successes, learn from each other and improve their clinical research operations.
We kicked off the conference with a welcome party at the Raised Bar, a rooftop restaurant offering stunning views of the Chicago River and Walkway. Hugs, cheers and laughter filled the room and spilled out to the patio with Chicago’s skyscrapers framing the party. It’s clear that the Onsemble Community is an incredible group, bound together by one mission: bring life-saving preventions and therapies to market as fast as possible.
That’s a tall order – the clinical research industry is incredibly complex and heavily regulated. So coming together, collaborating, and learning from each other is key to accomplishing goals.
In addition to key workshops such as Implementation Planning Workshop: Taking Care of the Essential Elements and an invite-only veteran customer workshop, there are several sessions to help customers make the most of their investment in the OnCore technology. I’m especially excited for the session on the ROI of Implementing and Optimizing a CTMS with Orla Mester and Wendy Tate.
Thursday morning will bring the keynote – an inspiring and exciting update from CEO, Shree Kalluri, and the Senior Leadership team on the importance of clinical research and how we are creating innovative technologies to help research professionals go further, faster. And we’ll end our conference on Friday with several sessions on reporting, a demo of Opus, our new software to showcase your research and one-on-one time with the Forte Support and Training Teams on charge master, calendars and budgets.
If this is your first Onsemble, welcome! And if this is your 22nd Onsemble – thank you for being a part of this community. We look forward to learning from you each year.
