Reuters Events

There has never been a more pressing time for our industry to come together and show what matters, true value for patients and HCPs. Now, in a completely virtual form, The Reuters Events: Pharma Awards Europe 2020 exist as the only pharma awards to elevate and showcase the very best work from across the industry to a global audience - on a virtual stage.

We’re reimagining what an awards ceremony should be - and for 2020 we’ll be giving everyone in pharma the opportunity to explore the 70+ entries via “Dragon’s Den” pitch sessions of the innovative and disruptive projects from across Europe with a week-long celebratory showcase. The winners will be chosen across the 17 categories and revealed live each day alongside audience voting, for an awards experience like no other.
