The innovators who dare to redefine healthcare

North America’s largest commercial pharma conference

Never has the pressure been so great.

We know we need to innovate. We know that big pharma doesn’t have all the answers.

What we don’t know, however, is who is pioneering the most promising solutions. Until now.

New technologies, changing business models, shifting patient preferences, cell & gene therapies – all of these things are disrupting workflows in drug discovery, supply chain operations and treatment delivery. New advances will redefine what it means to be a pharma company. Are you keeping pace or being left behind?

eyeforpharma Philadelphia is where you’ll witness, up close, what's really possible. You’ll be inspired by the most ground-breaking start-ups and discoveries from both inside and outside pharma companies. This is the only event to combine cutting-edge innovation with a deep understanding of pharma's unique opportunity to bring healthcare to life. Prepare to be amazed!

Innovation leaders include:

Carefully selected to cover every aspect of the innovation stage.
