We are delighted to be taking part as exhibitors in the EphMRA Annual Conference 2018 – scheduled to take place at the Basel Congress Centre in Switzerland on 26th-28th June. We hope that you can join us on Stand 13 across the four days.

EphMRA brings businesses together from across the European healthcare sector to facilitate better market research and data analytics practices. Their annual conference is an opportunity to check the pulse of the latest primary and secondary research techniques, as well as shape the conversation on forecasting, data analysis, monitoring, KPI setting and other research practices affecting the industry.

Event Highlights

So why take time out to head over to Switzerland next month? Apart from June being a lovely time to visit the country, we are looking forward to some great highlights from this conference:

  • An Agency Fair packed with dozens of healthcare manufacturers, suppliers, consultancies and service companies – all exhibiting their latest services and products.
  • Organised networking lunches, dinners and workshops, plus plenty of informal networking opportunities
  • Seminars, workshops, presentations and discussions from key influencers in the industry

There are some interesting topics up for debate this year. First among them is the impact of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) on healthcare market research organisations, which will take place on the first day. There are also some interesting workshops covering companion diagnostic research, market access and boosting respondent engagement – among other topics.

Talks we’re looking forward to include the keynote speech on Pharmacovigilance and Adverse Events Reporting on the Thursday morning, as well as the plenary discussion on how cultural perception affects the acceptance of pharmaceutical products; scheduled to take place on the Wednesday afternoon.

Venue, Travel & Accommodation

The Basel Congress Centre is a spacious, well-equipped modern venue within easy reach of rail, road and air links from all over Europe. The comfortable facilities include spacious exhibition areas, breakout rooms and dedicated lecture spaces for the seminars, talks and discussions.

Accommodation in the city centre sells out quickly in the run-up to the conference, so please book your hotel and transfers as soon as possible if you are planning to attend. For delegates coming over from the UK, the conference venue is within easy distance of a Hertz car rental centre, Basel train station and Mulhouse-Freiburg Airport, just 2.5 miles from the city centre.

We look forward to seeing some of you at the event. If you’re attending please let us know. It is always good to put names to faces and to share knowledge/discuss new projects in a relaxed environment over a cup of coffee.
