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 startups. These are thee companies with all of the reach and all of the connections… but very little of the entrepreneurial zeal.

Many startups have already realised this and come to Barcelona every year. To make this easier, we have a limited number of heavily discounted StartUp Passes.

What makes Barcelona 2020 different

New connections

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 Barcelona Networking Party taking place at the end of Day 1 – where attendees let their hair down and relax with world-class food and drink.

Real inspiration

We all talk about the importance of culture. Barcelona is a culture capital, one of the few places on earth which balances commercial nous, a favourable climate and high art. Make sure you experience Gaudi’s hometown with your clients.

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!
