10th European Medical Information and Communications Conference and Exhibition

The only European forum dedicated to medical information and communications, organised by medical information and communications professionals.


We are in the 10th year of the Annual European Medical Information and Communications Conference. This is a unique meeting organised by medical information professionals for medical information professionals. Each year, speakers share hands-on experience dealing with current challenges as well as successes in medical information departments. Participants are encouraged to take part in the interactive workshop sessions and discussions happening throughout the conference. This conference is the one and only European forum dedicated to medical information and communications, making it the premier opportunity to network, exchange learnings, and share best practices.   

Key Topics

  • Moving from traditional phone- and email-based channels to innovative digital channels to disseminate medical information
  • Examples of successes in digital presented by the most advanced players
  • Comparison between pharmaceuticals and medical devices – can the same strategies be used, or is a different approach needed?
  • Regulatory and legal issues: developments since the rejection of Safe Harbor – what’s the impact of the new data privacy rules in Europe (Data privacy shield)

What Last Year's Attendees Said:

“This conference is a must attend priority for anyone working in Medical Information in Europe.”

 “I think this conference is very relevant to people working in Medical Information. It is a good way to learn the innovations and new trends. It is also a good opportunity to exchange ideas and experience with people from other companies.”

“It is relevant to what we do and it has content that is easily applicable if needed to our daily work and there are no other forums for such exchange in Europe.”

Anniversary Dinner

Following the networking reception on 29 November, conference attendees will be invited to a dinner to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Conference. Transportation between the hotel and the restaurant will be arranged for.

If you wish to bring a colleague along to the dinner who isn’t attending the conference, please feel free to contact us, we can arrange this at a cost of €100.
