Worldwide publisher and event organiser Advanstar Communications has announced the launch of an innovative Networking Forum to run alongside its Applied Clinical Trials European Summit from 29 - 31 October 2007 at the Dorint Sofitel Schweizerhof, Berlin, Germany.
The newly introduced Networking Forum will become an integral part of the 2007 event and will provide vendors with a valuable platform to meet and do business with purchasers and influencers from leading pharmaceutical, biotech and contract research organisations. The Networking Forum will enable Hosts (vendors) to invite a select number of their top clients and/or prospects to the event as Hosted Delegates, providing a unique environment in which all participants in ACT can network and do business.
"The Networking Forum has been launched in direct response to research conducted amongst suppliers to this market into what they need and want from their industry event. It will enable vendors to do business away from the traditional exhibition format in a relaxed but professional environment, enabling them to offer the very best customer service and hospitality to their existing clients and potential customers," commented event director Jessica Blue.
The Networking Forum has been designed to make the process of doing business as easy as possible. "This new format enables vendors to take part in an event where all of the hassle of organising an exhibition stand is taken away. Once vendors make the decision to become a Networking Host, Advanstar Communications will manage every aspect of organizing the attendance of their Hosted Delegates, from booking hotel rooms to setting up meetings," added Blue.
The ACT European Summit & Networking Forum is the leading information and networking event for senior level European clinical trials professionals. The three-day event consists of a day of pre conference seminars followed by two days of plenary sessions and workshops. The content focuses on the latest issues and trends affecting: clinical research, clinical trials, clinical operations, regulatory affairs, data management/EDC, project management, quality assurance and drug safety.
The Applied Clinical Trials European Summit & Networking Forum: 29 - 31 October, Dorint Sofitel Schweizerhof, Berlin, Germany. For more information on becoming a Networking Host, contact Catherine Mealor on +44 (0) 1244 393422 or email.
