2021 Tech Forum

Be part of one of the accreditation industry’s largest annual events August 1-4 2021


Tech Forum 2021 LogoThe A2LA Tech Forum has grown to become one of the largest, multidiscipline events in the accreditation industry, attracting attendees from over 12 different industries, including automotive, environmental, pharmaceutical, calibration, and more. The forum promotes discussion and training on topics related to the accreditation industry through face-to-face interactions with A2LA’s staff, members and assessors, accredited conformity assessment bodies, association members, advisory committee members, government bodies, specifiers, committee and council volunteers, and any other interested parties.

The goal of the event is to further strengthen the value of accreditation for all stakeholders.  Join a global group of industry professionals for:

  • Training and educational meetings on best practices
  • Public training for support of accreditation 
  • Accreditation program-specific technical meetings
  • A2LA member-specific meetings and sessions
  • Dinner, awards and recognition
  • Professional development
  • Networking with peers

Our plan is to make the 2021 Tech Forum a hybrid event welcoming in-person and virtual participants with a new theme, "Surf Into Compliance – Navigating the waters of accreditation."  We will continually monitor the COVID-19 situation and decide in May of 2021 on the Tech Forum's final format.
