Why You Should Attend

10th Annual Strategic Alliance Management for Pharma

This 10th edition marcus evans conference on Strategic Alliance Management for Pharma will focus on demonstrating the value and role of alliance management, strengthening the skills of alliance function, aligning the right resources and projects, integrating into global portfolio strategy. Internally, we will have a closer look at business development functions, integration processes, and third party-procurement involvements; externally, we will focus on adapting quickly to a diversity of partners, new business models, fast processes and multiple challenges that may occur in the life of pharma agreements. Come and join us for the only dedicated Pharma Alliance conference in Europe!

Alliances and partnerships are vital to the pharma industry, to accelerate innovation, developing research or finding the right partners on new markets. But to pursue various collaborations, pharma needs to understand the diverse environment in which they evolve, especially with regards to the diversity of companies they may approach and the variety of cultural backgrounds and expectations.

The Alliance Management function had been structured over the years to offer a framework to secure alliances and partnerships and it has grown in maturity and value in the same path as alliances became more and more strategic.

Despite the current circumstances, we know your appetite for key business insights remains so our Live+ digital platform enables you to fully participate in the event remotely. Of course it provides access to live online streams of all session, but much more than that, it ensures you are able to engage with speakers directly allowing you to participate in Q&A, relevant breakout groups as well as event polling and other insights and resources delivered during the event. We realise interacting with other delegates is key to your event experience, so our innovate online solution allows you to set up online meetings with other virtual and physical attendees throughout the event; ensuring you still walk away with those key contacts that can make a tangible difference to you and your business. The platform will continue to host all event content on-demand for you to re-visit and continue to access for up to 6 months post event.
