You can't do it alone. Healthcare Provider (HCP) behavior is evolving rapidly and modern meetings call for a more integrated and multi channel approach to content delivery.

How can industry stakeholders collaborate to overcome the new challenges we face in satisfying demand for access to scientific meetings in the digital age?

Join us for this virtual event as we discuss new data that has been generated by EPG Communications Group. This data is based on surveys conducted with three groups:

  1. Healthcare Professionals (HCPs)
  2. Pharmaceutical Industry Professionals
  3. Service Providers involved in scientific meetings
Once again, we're lining up a panel of experts and the emphasis in the meeting will be on encouraging the audience to ask questions and share their own experiences.

This MedComms Networking meeting is supported by Blue Sky eLearn.
