For the 30th year, SOCRA will welcome clinical research professionals from across the world to our 2021 Annual Conference. Located in beautiful Denver CO, at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, this three-day conference will offer current information and tools, best practices, and training to assure that you're up-to-date and compliant in your clinical research practice.

SOCRA is committed to our mission of excellence in clinical research and look forward to bringing our community together to foster the professional development and peer recognition of clinical research professionals. SOCRA looks forward to offering engaging presentations, insightful Q+A, opportunities for continuing education, and the chance to interact and connect with fellow attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors. 

Our response to Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) is driven by the latest data from the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). There is nothing more important to us at SOCRA than the health and well-being of our conference attendees. Given what information we have, we are currently planning to hold the 2021 SOCRA Annual Conference in-person at the Sheraton Downtown Denver in Denver, Colorado. We are working closely with the conference venue, monitoring the situation and following guidance issued by the WHO and CDC. We will continue our vigilance in monitoring the situation and will be sure to utilize precautionary measures to protect the health and safety of our community. If necessary, we will hold the 2021 Annual Conference virtually. By registering for this live in-person event, your registration fee is protected with the guarantee of a free refund or transfer.
