Why eyeforpharma is the leader in pharma conferences

In early 2020, we supported North American pharma to respond quickly to the emerging challenge of COVID-19, bringing 12,000+ industry leaders together to strategize and collaborate online at our first ever virtual event.

Streaming from their home offices, living rooms and bedrooms, 150+ expert speakers shared critical insights with online attendees from all of top 50 pharma and beyond. The appetite and desire to come together, share ideas and collaborate at such a complicated time was humbling.

Now more than ever, society is looking to medicine developers for answers. Quickly moving important gatherings online is vital for innovation continuity and keeping us all making progress for delivering new medicines.
