A reflection on the last European Congress:

ISPOR 20th Annual European Congress, Glasgow, Scotland 2017

  • 4,922 delegates
  • 84 countries represented
  • More than 2400 presentations
  • 98 exhibiting companies
  • 13 event sponsors
Plenary Session
“Many interesting issues, many interesting people to share the expertise. Growing input from CEE countries highly appreciated.”
“The meeting was well attended with many sessions of interest. Attendees were from across the spectrum of academia, HTA bodies, pharma companies and consultancies.”
“… The congress was a great learning opportunity for me and the range of topics, presentation formats and networking possibilities was fantastic. I have attended several similar style conferences in the pharmaceutical industry and often the scheduling does cause conflicts of interest, but the work done to allow delegates more access to varied topics was definitely worthwhile. I would say this was one of the best organized events I have attended in the industry.”
