The finals day will take place on the 7 November, 2013, at the spectacular global headquarters of finals hosts SAS in Cary, North Carolina. This year, special workshops have been organized for the finalists and guests to provide additional development opportunities and will span areas including the use of social media to assist patient recruitment and engagement.

Prestigious awards ceremony

The evening of the 7 November will see global pharma industry representatives come together at the prestigious Umsted Hotel, Cary, North Carolina, to hear the winners being announced. "It will be an occasion to remember and put an important global spotlight, not just on talented individuals and teams who made the finals but also on the companies who they represent and the whole clinical research fraternity," adds Sean Morgan-Jones.
