"Learned so many new things, very excited to implement…Excellent course, well presented and all content was highly relevant for me" - Johnson Mathey, Previous Attendee

As well as social media leading the way in pharmacovigilance, clinical trial recruitment and digital communications, the pharmaceutical industry is entering into a new and exciting digital era which is embracing patient engagement through sophisticated use of ‘social listening' and playing a central role in cutting edge personalised healthcare such as wearable technology.

Building on the success of previous events, SMi Group are delighted to introduce the 8th annual conference on Social Media in the Pharmaceutical Industry, taking place on 20th and 21st January in Central London.

Bringing in voices from some of the most senior industry leaders in healthcare and digital marketing, such as Actelion, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Boehringer Ingelheim, Lundbeck, Creation Healthcare, Novo Nordisk, Pfizer and Roche, the 2016 show will provide a platform for marketing practitioners to capture the latest trends and technologies, learn from practical case studies and benchmark best practice to maximise digital strategy.

  • Can mHealth apps teach health-related survival skills?
  • Will empowerment of patients transform ‘outdated’ cultural attitudes within Health?
  • How can negative social media be countered?
