Where pharma comes to life

The world’s largest commercial pharma conference

Providing life-saving inspiration in 2020

Being a pharmaceutical leader was once all about what you could sell. Marshalling your troops like a grand army, ready to fight for your share of voice. Today, we need a new kind of leadership – one that is authentic, all about data-driven decision-making, regulatory-grade real-world evidence, value-based access and empowering medical on the front line.

To affect this change, 2000+ pharma-decision makers (from across Commercial, Sales, Marketing/Digital, IT, Medical, Patient Engagement, Market Access, RWE and Clinical) will join heathcare innovators on their yearly journey to the 18th eyeforpharma Barcelona Conference.  Let's usher in a new era of collaboration and truly achieve value-based care.

eyeforpharma Barcelona is where we redefine what the pharma industry can do.

A conference like no other

9 dedicated conference streams

Barcelona is huge – 2000+ people in total. Yet it’s also intimate, tailored just for you. You’ll spend most of the conference in one of 9 tracks with sessions that hit all your buttons.

All stakeholders. All functions. 1 place.

The most cross-functional pharma event in the world – executives from marketing, commercial, sales, market access, medical affairs, patient engagement, RWE, IT, clinical and more.

More than just conference sessions

Sometimes, the best ideas don’t come from the stage. They come from those chance happenings when you joined a roundtable or went to a networking evening.

The start-up health challenge returns

Our hand-selected health entrepreneurs take to the stage for a grand elevator pitch battle. Who is the most inspirational? You choose the winner!

Into the light: networking is key

Don’t think you’ll be stuck in a dark conference room for three days. There are hours of onsite and offsite networking sessions, with the 2000+ attendees: plus a variety of interactive thought-leadership sessions away from the stages.


You won’t find a better place to meet your peers, who have the same challenges as you, since over 69% of the pharma attendees are director-level or above.

eyeforpharma Barcelona is regarded in Janssen as a critical, must-attend. EVERY YEAR
