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.
