Pharmig’s 29th Annual November Conference will now be a virtual event

17th & 18th November (via Zoom)

Member Fee £400 (Join Now) / Non-Member Fee £550

Many companies are still reluctant to send employees out to external meetings with a number of them stating ‘no travel’ for the rest of this year. Pharmig are also seeing some organisations who had advertised a F2F event – now swapping theirs back to virtual.

Overall, for Pharmig, yours and all our members health, safety and well-being are paramount. As such – this year’s event will once again be on-line. BUT we do have a great line-up of topics and speakers for you!!

PLUS- attend the main Conference (17th/18th November) and you can attend FREE the technical sponsored presentation days we will be running on the 16th & 19th November. More details of these agendas will follow shortly.

We have everything crossed that our 30th Annual conference next year will be F2F and celebrated in true Pharmig style…!
