Pharma Forum — the most compelling and comprehensive meeting management event for the life sciences industry — is taking content, innovation and networking to the highest level yet in 2017!

A Look Back At Pharma Forum 2016

Thank you to all who participated in Pharma Forum this year! Powered by CBI and MeetingsNet, the 12th Annual Pharma Forum in New York City saw record-breaking attendance and the highest participation of corporate planners to date. Guided by a distinguished Advisory Board of highly experienced meetings professionals and propelled by an all-new Innovation Committee, the brightest minds in the meetings industry convened for heightened information sharing and networking.

The excitement of NYC played into the energy and buzz onsite and was fueled even further by the creative general session seating and innovative stage setup. Further innovation was reflected in the session content, with a dynamic opening keynote on the state of the meetings industry, the impact of personality styles on communication, an enhanced planner-hotelier point/counterpoint panel highlighting benchmarking meal cap survey results, an energetic address directly from EFPIA and an all-new Physician Exchange Panel, sharing first-hand insight from practitioners.

Another first was an empowerment and career-development track, topped by a general session cross-industry panel of high-powered women who provided some hard-earned tips for working into leadership positions.

Participants also gave back to the community by stopping by the CSR activity area in the expo hall, where they could create animal ornaments and puppets used to decorate children’s IV poles and IV bags. Nearby was a Social Wall, which lit up with the latest tweets, posts, and pictures fresh from the conference’s attendees.

We look forward to collaborating and developing the 2017 program based on your input!

WHAT’S ALL THE BUZZ ABOUT?

The 12th Annual Pharma Forum was one of the best conferences so far.
Great attendance from planners and suppliers – very timely and informative sessions!
Great speakers and the HCP panel was a very nice addition.

Director, Travel, Meetings and Conventions, Daiichi Sankyo

I found this conference to be very beneficial to what I do every single day because it
focused on medical/pharmaceutical device planners who have the same challenges
every day as my team. It was great to hear how other planners and program managers
find innovative ways to work through the challenges.

Manager, Surgical Education, Bard, Davol Inc.

This was my first year and it REALLY provided us with some great takeaways
and how to expand our services.

For hotels working regularly with clients from the pharma segment,
it is the best forum to network and get new contacts!

Great meeting, especially the innovative approach to the setup of the main room,
which allowed for great interaction and use of technology.

Head of Global Congress and Event Management, Lundbeck

Thank you for another fantastic program! This was my third Pharma Forum and
probably the best! The General Session stage/set up was innovative and top notch,
the speakers were engaging and informative and the events were a fantastic showcase
of our hotel partner’s capabilities and offerings!

10 years experience, it was beneficial to my knowledge base to meet individuals who
are passionate about their careers. I look forward to 2017.
