Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

25 February, 2020

Updated 29 May, 2020

ISPE is closely monitoring the evolution of the Coronavirus situation and we are following the World Health Organization (WHO) guidance and travel advice. Every precaution is being taken to ensure the health and safety of our members, staff and other stakeholders participating in our global conferences and training programs. We are constantly evaluating the situation and will provide updates as the situation evolves.

At the present time, the following events have been adversely impacted by the Coronavirus:

  • Due to company-instituted travel restrictions and the potential for facilitating transmission during the event, the ISPE Leadership Team has decided to postpone the 2020 ISPE Europe Annual Conference and Training in Madrid.  We are actively exploring alternate dates and venues, and hope to have our revised schedule finalized in the next few weeks. All conference and training registrants, exhibitors, and stakeholders have been contacted directly.  If you have not been contacted, or you wish to speak with an ISPE representative, please email us at

In consideration of the health and safety of our program attendees, and travel restrictions imposed by member companies, the ISPE Leadership Team has decided not to hold any in-person events for the remainder of the 2020 calendar year, and instead will conduct these as virtual events. This includes all conferences, workshops, and training programs scheduled for 2020. 

We do not take this decision lightly, but feel it is the right path forward given the current state, and our primary goal of keeping Members and staff safe.
