An intensive, three-hour summit for senior-level pharmaceutical planners is one of the new features that will be offered at the Third Annual Pharmaceutical Meeting Planners Forum. Co-organized by Medical Meetings magazine and the Center for Business Intelligence, the conference is scheduled for March 26 to 27, 2007, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. The summit is open only to pharmaceutical meeting planners with 15 or more years of experience. Attendance is limited to 40; qualified delegates will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Facilitated by Barb Taylor Carpender, CMM, chief alliance officer, Taylored Alliances, Denver, the workshop will consist of high-level roundtable discussions about topics chosen by the participants.

The 2007 event also will offer other new features, including boot camp for new planners, a career development track, and specialized workshops on sales, product launch, and investigator meetings. For more information, you can click here, call (800) 817-8601, or send an e-mail to cbireg@cbinet.com.
