Instead of coming to us, we’re coming directly to you!

For the first time in more than 15 years, Rapid Methods Europe will be held as an entirely virtual meeting. The online platform will be an effective communication channel, with an impact reaching far beyond the conference.

The virtual meeting, RME2021, takes place 1-3 February 2021. The conference will continue to provide the real-life opportunities to network, learn and engage that participants have come to know, value and expect. Join the experts in a highly interactive environment featuring video-streaming presentations with live Q&A, on-demand sessions, interactive booths on the exhibition floor, an engaging poster hall, and more.
