Welcome to the era of unprecedented healthcare innovation.

Look around – what do you see? From empowered patients to AI and advanced analytics, to cell and gene therapy commercialization, remote health, and hybrid engagement, pharma is undergoing a period of unrivalled change.

To lead the path forward we must move beyond normal, setting new boundaries for partnerships across healthcare and implementing operating models that aren’t just resilient, but ensure a sustained cultural shift toward authenticity and agility. The end result? True collaboration across functions driving the delivery of seamless, personalized experiences for every patient and HCP. 

Pharma USA 2021 is not just another virtual event - it’s a business-critical experience for pharma leaders and health innovators. A fully cross-functional gathering to collectively build partnerships, scale new digital innovations, review performance, and ensure we continue to deliver transformative impact on patients' lives.

An Action-Packed Timetable

We know that attending a virtual event for an entire day is not realistic for most people, so we’re reinventing the event format rule book in an effort to maximize your time and elevate your learning experience.

We’ve designed the agenda as learning modules, with 2 hour segments of thematically-linked case studies and panels spread out over a 2 week period so you can easily block out the time for the modules most relevant to you.

There will never be more than a few hours a day to consider, and of course, if you still have clashes, all streamed content will be accessible afterwards On Demand.


Learning for everyone to guarantee whole-company success

Four specific agendas for each of the below functions, bolstered by critical cross-functional sessions – this is no ordinary conference.

Marketing and Commercial Meet your customers where they are and ensure your omnichannel strategy delivers across every touchpoint with hyper-personalized communications.

Medical Affairs Making the leap from supporting partner to key strategic decision-maker has never been more needed or more possible. Deliver on value and become the leading figure in pharma’s next evolutionary step.

Patient Engagement Patients have changed. More digitally mature. More informed. More decisive in their treatment journeys. Stay one step ahead by creating a new hybrid-ready, insight driven service paradigm.

Market Access and RWE Overcome uncertainty in pursuit of better coverage - forecast the impact of pricing reform and policy changes on your strategy, improve RWE integration and bring patients, payers and regulators along with you.

Why Reuters Events is the pharma industry’s chosen partner

Throughout 2020, we supported North American pharma to respond quickly to the plethora of challenges the COVID-19 crisis threw at them. Seamlessly shifting to digital, we brought together 12,000+ industry leaders to strategize and collaborate at our first ever virtual event.

Streaming from their home offices, living rooms and bedrooms we shared critical insights from over 150 expert speakers and shared critical insights from pharma’s top 50. The appetite and desire to come together, share ideas and collaborate has never been greater.

Now more than ever, society is looking to medicine developers for answers. Quickly moving important gatherings online is vital for innovation continuity and keeping us all making progress for delivering new medicines.
