Medical Meetings and the Center for Business Intelligence have partnered with Leverage Software to create Pharma Planners Connect, an online social networking site, for participants in the Fourth Annual Pharmaceutical Meeting Planners Forum. The tool allows attendees to share content, make connections, and network well before the event takes place.

In another conference first, the Professional Convention Management Association and the National Business Travel Association have both signed on as association sponsors. PCMA will be providing educational support, including hosting the Strategic Meeting Solutions for Symposia and Congresses workshop on the first day of the conference.

The conference is scheduled for March 17 to 19, 2008, at the Baltimore Convention Center. For more information, visit www.pharmameetingplanners.com, call (800) 817-8601, send an e-mail to cbireg@cbinet.com,
