Discussing the emerging tech and its influence on pharma–stakeholders relationship is long overdue. This year’s eyeforpharma featured a strong technical narrative with everything that the web has been buzzing for a year: chatbots, AI, machine learning, genomics and much more in stock. Was this even a life science conference anymore? Just take a look at the digital side of the things that have been touched upon, as pharma was sharing the stage with 8 start-ups:
Key Digital Themes to have been discussed at this pharma summit:
- Change the conversation: how to develop a more authentic partnership with customer and HCPs;

Workshop on sustainable mindset towards content: how to create content beyond systems, channels and devices
As always, we are staying on the cutting-edge side of digital things. So what we are bringing with this time is Multichannel, you’ve been doing it wrong insights. Over this year, we’ve noticed that as content production has increased exponentially but disharmoniously into “moderate to enormous” amounts, our customers started seeking new forms of content creation, with reusing the existing assets considered the top alternative. Tailoring and repurposing same content to suit different audiences has become a brave new trend in pharma marketing, and the power of universality that comes with it is very much in fashion.
Imagine creating sustainable content that exists out of the box, be it device, format or even content type, with resulting channel-agnostic content that can be published to systems of your choice. This is what our workshop was all about.
Our workshop was aimed to discuss the most innovative and sustainable ways to create content that exists beyond design, beyond format and beyond device. Our new approach looks into the future of fragmentation through the lens of global cloud-based systems.
Key questions to have been covered:
- How can content exist outside of the channel
- What core principles and business rules impact content reuse within a channel
- How to build a proper content model to foster reuse and localization: from data mapping to delivery
- What is the optimal content governance process
- From content discovery to production: how modular content framework accelerates localization and speeds-up MLR approval
A well-organized venue makes for half of the event’s success, especially if it’s a humble 1300+ C-suites get-together. Tempered by the time, lively discussions and multinational audience requirements, the old faithful CCIB is a perfect facility for a yearly reunion of life sciences’ most active voices.
CCIB is just a 2o-minute drive-up from the airport, with a shopping center, public transportation and a wide choice of restaurants just a step away. With lots of small workshop rooms and big keynotes auditoriums, the conference hall is easy to navigate for both newcomers and old-timers for building collaborations and sharing insights.
And as you get immersed in the ambiance of the event, take a moment to rest your eyes on the sea-sky horizon seen from the 2nd floor and higher. Modern architecture and the overall atmosphere of the place provided a perfect, calm place for intellectual work, small and big talk alike. All the participants took this chance to stroll along the sea front to digest all the great insights and enjoyed the company of the great minds around.
