Why attend?

Because pharma needs you.

As pharma steps out from its comfort zone, it needs help. Help to push boundaries, innovate, disrupt – and deliver exceptional experiences.

Never more than today have pharma companies been interested in partnering, incubating and supporting health start-ups. These are companies with all of the reach and all of the connections… but very little of the entrepreneurial zeal.

Many start-ups have already realised this and come to eyeforpharma Philadelphia every year. To make this easier, we have a limited number of heavily discounted Start-Up Passes.

What makes eyeforpharma Philadelphia 2020 different

New connections

1200 is a lot of people. How do you find the right ones? Don’t worry. The eyeforpharma networking app and online hub is far more than just an event guide. It’s a comprehensive meeting service, allowing you to find old friends (trust us, there will be some in the room) and new ones, with messaging and meeting scheduling across all attendees.

25+ hours of dedicated networking time

Don’t think you’ll be stuck in a dark conference room the whole time. We have lengthened our breaks and increased the variety of onsite and offsite networking sessions: some conventional, some unconventional – allowing you to reconnect with old friends and make new, to help build your business development pipeline.


You won’t find a better place to connect with pharma decision-makers since over 69% of the pharma attendees are director-level or above.

THE Pharma Networking Party

There’s no better place to connect with old and new clients than at the eyeforpharma Philadelphia Networking Party taking place at the end of Day 1 – where attendees let their hair down and relax.

Start-ups are central

Meet healthcare’s brightest entrepreneurs as the finalists from The Health Start-Up Challenge take to the stage for a grand elevator pitch battle. Who’s going to have the biggest impact on patients? Who is the most disruptive? You choose the winner!
