As the drug discovery environment evolves, it is becoming critical for companies to make strategic business decisions in order to maximise discovery efforts. In order to achieve this higher performance level, the industry must transform the way it performs its research and development. Through the introduction of new technology significant progress can be made to reach these goals. The industry must invest in innovative technologies, build networked organisations and harness its knowledge capital. Technology will enable acceleration of the selection process, reduce costs, and increase the overall chances of success.

A Unique Format

The Conference Programme: The wide variety of conference sessions will enable delegates to explore new strategies and technologies critical to the development of the drug discovery process. The programme is put together through extensive on-going research with delegates, industry experts and relevant parties to ensure that its content is relevant and accurately reflects their needs and interests. The sessions will include:

Keynote Lectures presented by leading professionals who will address topics of primary interest to delegates. They will examine current strategic trends and provide a vision for the future of the BioPharma industry.

Seminars specially designed for larger groups, these sessions will involve a presentation followed by question time. A number of case study presentations by pioneering practitioners will be delivered in this format.

Workshops, Think Tanks and Discussion Groups, these sessions are designed for smaller groups and will follow a highly interactive format, encouraging a high level of participation, and exchange of ideas.

One-to-One Business Meetings provide an unparalleled opportunity for delegates to meet with senior representatives from solution providers, and focus on the issues most relevant to their current needs and strategies. A scheduling software is used to process the meeting requests of all attendees. Mutually requested meetings have the highest priority. Individual schedules are generated enabling thorough research and preparation to make the actual meeting time at the event more effective.
