Join us at the DigiPharm 2016 Conference


On 5th-6th October 2016 at Royal Garden Hotel in London we’ll be chairing and presenting at the annual DigiPharm 2016 Conference on the opportunity for Pharmaceutical companies to go Mobile First (in which I’ll be describing how this new type of Pharma brand will function) and leading a roundtable discussion on the “mHealth opportunity for Pharma”.

“DigiPharm 2016 is focussing on the vast opportunities that digital and mobile technologies offer in patient engagement and marketing strategies. It is about presenting the right message as part of a well considered, multichannel marketing effort, and how to utilise the different channels to create a valuable experience for the customer. DigiPharm 2016 provides a forum for genuine disruptors (both individuals and organisations) to come and share their experiences of tackling industry stumbling blocks head on. This is more than just another conference. It is fresh, innovative and genuinely engaging for the audience. This coming year’s event will build on previous successes, covering the newest marketing processes, most innovative technologies and first glimpses of the most exciting digital and multichannel marketing case studies. 2016 promises to be the biggest ever. Join us to learn how to future proof your multichannel marketing strategy and utilise digital technologies to their full potential”.
