You will have the opportunity to network with key thought leaders from the FDA, industry, and other regulatory agencies, while simultaneously discussing the challenges and opportunities of marketing pharmaceuticals and medical devices today.

Participant Testimonials

"Very well-structured meeting. Great information about regulatory processes at FDA, and how we can access the team members there. It is all about building relationships, it is refreshing.” - Catherine Lair - Leadiant Biosciences

“The content was unique, thought provoking, and relevant. Many ad promo presentations are rehashing what we already know. This conference gave me new perspectives to consider.” - Kim Aubrey-Larcinese - CSL Behring
