This year’s Summer Event is going virtual!

We're planning an exciting and engaging programme to include:

  • The BHBIA Chair's Vision for the future
  • The 'New Normal' - what does it look like for business intelligence / insights generation? A chance to put your questions to a panel that will include senior pharma and agency leads
  • Keynote speaker - Hugo Fry, Managing Director of Sanofi UK Pharma & ABPI Vice President

The business part of the meeting will be followed by an opportunity to chat with the Board and fellow members in a relaxed setting.

Today will plot the course of our future; 2020 has been a year of disruption and has forced us to adapt the ways that we live, work and interact in society. Our aim as the BHBIA is to ensure that the UK remains an attractive place to invest for the development and dissemination of actionable insight. This session will outline the vision and direction of travel for the organisation into 2021 and beyond.
