How Does B2B Partnering Work?

The main objective of the event is to provide meeting opportunities powered by an intelligent digital platform; for growth companies interested in business development and commercial collaborations.
The event offers a digital platform that allows attendees to look for a specific company or a product and then schedule, arrange and attend pre-booked 1-2-1 business meetings.
The PharmaSynergy partnering platform opens two weeks before the live event and ample time is provided to allow attendees to book meetings. The digital platform remains open until the end of the month allowing for plenty of opportunities to network.
