The 2017 ISO 9000 World Conference will be held March 27-28, 2017 at Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, Nashville, TN, USA and will continue its longstanding tradition of providing relevant topics with leading experts in their respective fields during this year’s conference. This year’s event is the 25th and the longest running conference on ISO 9000 & related standards.

With 50+speakers, and hands-on workshops, the 2017 conference is a must-attend event for every Quality Management Professional.

The transition to ISO 9001:2015 is getting started, and other key management system standards are undergoing their own revisions. It is time for all organizations to start their work to achieve conformity. At this conference top experts in the world will show you the way to success with the new standards.

This unique international event brings together leaders in the field of ISO 9000 and QMS Standards. If you are concerned about the changes in ISO 9001 and the related Quality Management System Standards (QMS), come and learn from the people who are working on making the changes and from those who have begun implementing the changes.

Lorri Hunt, Conference Chair, states; “To date, less than 10 percent of the organizations who are currently certified to ISO 9001 have completed the transition to the 2015 version. It is unknown whether the reluctance to transition comes from a fear of the unknown or a timing issue with the certification of the organization. The conference has been focused with this current statistic in mind.

This year’s conference is certain to provide the knowledge organizations need to proceed with their transition to ISO 9001:2015. A combination of workshops, case studies from organizations who have completed the transition, and sessions on specific requirements of ISO 9001 from experienced quality professionals and standards experts are sure to provide those needed insights. The conference also will continue its focus on networking where attendees get the opportunity to interact with fellow quality professionals and the speakers.

Sector specific standards will also be part of this year’s conference program. In-depth sessions on ISO 13485, AS9100, and IATF 16949. Industry experts will explain the changes with timely and relevant information that attendees can use to complete their transition for these standards as well.

No conference is complete without tools to enhance the management system. Risk-based thinking continues to be a topic of discussion. Sessions have been planned to present a variety of perspectives on this topic. Presentations on auditing will also provide tools on how to add value to the organization.

The goal of the ISO 9000 World Conference has always been to offer conference attendees an experience that provides value. The 2017 ISO 9000 World Conference will continue this time honored tradition.”
