Smart, innovative, digital: where progressive pharma companies achieve ambitious new objectives

Attend the event where Commercial, Medical, RWE and Clinical transformation will be determined

Back for it’s 14th year: Pharma Japan 2021 is where you will decide your future. The healthcare landscape is evolving and pharma must evolve with it. That’s why we have ensured that our agenda features great insights on how to achieve high effectiveness with limited time and resources. Sometimes this involves digitizing existing processes, sometimes it involves forming new partnerships and sometimes it requires imaginative new business models. We will also provide great case studies from industry leaders and plenty of networking time.

From the Opening Keynote, focusing on future direction of pharma with cutting-edge case studies, to the practical themes covering Digital Clinical Innovation, Commercial Excellence, Medical Affairs & RWE, we will deliver a new direction for your planning.
