We have lost count of the stories of new opportunities, partnerships, ideas, funding, take-home tactics, jobs, standards and friendships that were born in Barcelona’. This city is the meeting place where new initiatives find their wings. The conference is how pioneering initiatives develop into gamechanging strategies.
The ambition to redefine the pharmaceutical industry, the proximity of like-minded people, and the abundance of industry leading case-studies are the main reasons so many executives come back to Barcelona every year.
Patient-led on principle
At eyeforpharma, we practice what we preach. The eyeforpharma Barcelona agenda was developed with patients, will be delivered with patients, and will be scrutinized by patients at the event itself.
Get under the skin of the issue
Sometimes, issues need to be discussed and debated. Only then will you truly get under the skin of whatever is vexing you and achieve that aha moment. To facilitate this, roundtable debates run throughout the conference across all audience and topic areas. Get your sleeves rolled up.
Benchmark against the best
With an agenda packed with real-life case studies (100+ in total), showing you the successes and challenges from a range of new projects – you’ll leave with a clear idea of where you’re at compared to competitors.
Don’t get siloed
Nowhere else can you walk around the corner and start collaborating with relevant peers across the range of functions from different organisations - whether marketing, strategy, sales, market access, commercial excellence, patient engagement, RWE, medical affairs, IT or clinical development.
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!
All things great and small
Perhaps you want big, revolutionary, high-level ideas. Or perhaps you want practical, evidence-driven solutions and use cases. Barcelona is where you will find both.
6 stages: focus on what matters
Barcelona is huge. Yet it’s also intimate, tailored to your day-to-day learning needs. You’ll be able to pick from across 6 parallel, tracked stages, each focussed on a critical topic.
New: The Patient Dragon’s Den
Witness disruptive ideas from the brightest patient entrepreneurs: can you match their passion?
Running to Keep Ahead
Start your day right by joining in with our morning group runs. See the sights of Barcelona while getting your early morning exercise and making new friends.
2000 is a lot of people. How do you find the right ones? Don’t worry. The eyeforpharma networking app is 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.
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: some conventional, some unconventional, plus a variety of interactive thought-leadership sessions away from the stages.
We all emphasise the importance of culture in our companies. 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 while here!
