Healthcare Meetings Forum 2013 – What’s in it for associations?

The Healthcare Meetings Forum will take place in London on 17 September 2013.

Most medical societies are aware of existing regulations  and how these are impacting commercial organisations’ engagement with healthcare professionals. But how many understand the impact that European Transparency disclosure requirements to healthcare professionals and medical societies is likely to have on medical meetings?

The main topics for discussion at the Healthcare Meetings Forum will be future trends in medical meetings and medical congresses, as well as other forms of marketing tools and strategies. The agenda includes trends affecting medical meetings and conferences, meetings as part of a multi-channel strategy and discussions on factors that will drive the evolution of medical congresses.

The Forum has adopted a very collaborative approach through its steering committee of event professionals, who are setting a program to engender thought leadership in the sector. Up to 200 decision makers from the pharmaceutical industry, medical science associations, medical agencies, event management companies and venues are expected to attend the full day event.

“As a member of the steering committee, and with my engagement with medical associations in my daily work, I see a significant correlation between the topics chosen in the program and the focus and issues being faced by medical associations and their meetings”, says Caroline Mackenzie, Business Development Director at Congrex. “The Healthcare Meetings Forum can act as a hub where both medical associations and corporate healthcare professionals can engage with each other and other related professionals to determine how the landscape is evolving.”

Congrex are delighted to support this important meeting.

The Healthcare Meetings Forum 2013 promises to be just as successful as the first Forum which was arranged last year. It will be held at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London.
