Our goal is to create a unique, dynamic, and educational program for conference attendees who are at the forefront of digital innovation in the life science marketing space and are interested in gaining deep insights into HCP engagement strategies, innovative solutions for patients, and driving omnichannel marketing. 
 
We particularly encourage proposals from speakers with innovative and practical experience who can share real-world examples of leading unique campaigns or developing digital strategies at their organization.  


 
Proposals for talks that will be given preference in the review process will: 

  • Be presented by life science leaders in marketing innovation with real-world experience  

  • Reveal new ways of thinking about digital marketing and commercial excellence 

  • Share lessons learned, best practices, and tips and tricks for executing digital campaigns and engagement
