While many pharma companies are dismantling their internal meeting planning departments and outsourcing their functions, Pfizer has taken a different approach: It has actually expanded three of its meeting planning teams. Find out how Pfizer developed this model and learn strategies for demonstrating your value in your organization at the Second Annual Pharmaceutical Meeting Planners Forum.

Organized by Medical Meetings and the Center for Business Intelligence, the conference will convene March 20 to 21, 2006, at the Philadelphia Marriott. Attendees can choose from three program tracks: strategic meeting management, tactical meeting management, and international meetings.

American Express is the exclusive presenting co-sponsor; Meeting Professionals International is the lead association sponsor and will provide CEUs.
