The CQI’s flagship event returned and saw a day of learning, sharing and celebration

The fifth International Quality Awards (IQA) took place on Thursday 23 June 2022 at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London and was also followed virtually by many via #CQIQualityAwards.   

We celebrated the achievements of exceptional quality professionals and auditors across the globe in the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London and this year for the first time the event also played host to the Quality Futures Summit, with thought-provoking panel discussions on some of the biggest topics and challenges faced by the profession.   

We were delighted that LRQA was our headline partner for the event. Find out more about the partnership and meet LRQA and our other event partners.
