Will the Fierce Pharma Meeting Professionals Summit be a live, in-person event this year?
A: Yes, the Fierce Pharma Meeting Professionals Summit will be a live conference held at the Harrah’s Waterfront Conference Center in Atlantic City, NJ on November 2-3, 2022.
How is this event different from other events for meeting professionals?
A: The the Fierce Pharma Meeting Professionals Summit encourages engagement by removing the trade-show layout and allowing connections to happen organically in an intimate gathering. Additionally, we are a content focused conference providing attendees an opportunity to share best practices on how best educate, network, and engage.
Will there be opportunities for networking?
Yes! There will be many ways to meet and network with your peers including networking breaks, breakfast, lunch, a cocktail reception and 1-2-1 meetings, where attendees can vet multiple vendors in one place and event partners have the opportunity to meet with experienced meeting planners.
If I am a meeting professional at a life sciences company or 3rd party meeting planner, do I have to agree to take appointments with event partners?
A. You are only obligated to attend meetings with event partners if you agree to the terms of our complimentary pass. We do have another option where you can purchase your pass to attend that does not require meetings.
How do I know if I qualify for a Complimentary Pass?
A. You must be a qualified meeting professional employed at a life sciences company, or a 3rd party meeting planner or CRO. All complimentary registrations require eight, 10-minute meetings meetings with event partners. You must agree to create a personal profile using Questex's HBS platform which will be used to auto-match appointments based on your profile.
What sponsorship opportunities are available for the event?
We have a lot of thought leadership, networking, and branding sponsorship opportunities available, including packages that provide you with guaranteed 1-2-1 meetings with experienced event planners.
