23rd MAY 2012, AUSTIN, TEXAS -- On 23rd to 25th of July, a selection of the region’s most prominent C-level executives from across the pharmaceutical industry will convene at the Barton Creek Resort and Spa, Austin, Texas, to attend GDS International’s tenth Next Generation Pharmaceuticals Summit (NGP).
This year, NGP has elected 30 of the most well-respected decision makers from the sector to meet, network, and assess the rapidly evolving pharmaceutical industry in a vibrant, closed door environment. The exclusive location, the intimate number of delegates and the outstanding content have all been combined to provide the executives with an ideal framework for new business relationships to flourish, whilst a series of interactive workshops and moderated, peer-led panel discussions give delegates the opportunity to meet with business analysts and solution providers to determine strategies and solutions for the year ahead.
The NGP Summit is proud to have representation from many long term partners, coupled alongside new clients who are attending this unique forum for the first time. With the help of all involved, the summit will highlight the most timely and relevant areas in today's market. Topics to be discussed at this year's summit include, but are not limited to personalized medicine, key collaborations and strategic M&A activity within the sector, translational medicine, next generation imaging technologies, biomarker discovery and development, R&D and clinical trial partnership models, drug safety and pharmacoviligance, companion diagnostics and innovative information technology solutions.
Included within this year's delegation are Paul Chew, Chief Medical Officer of Sanofi-Aventis; Scott Treiber, VP Global Clinical Operations and Medical Affairs at Hospira; Rajesh Chopra, VP Translational & Early Drug Development at Celgene; and Nestor Molfinio, VP Clinical Development at Medlmmune.
Peter Nathan, Director of Global Business Development, New England Biolabs attended last year's summit, and had this to say: "NGP offers enormous value and a real opportunity to network with a range of companies that perhaps you might not otherwise meet. The synergy we achieved with the companies in attendance was truly beneficial."
Indeed, the summit is set to provide the perfect environment for key decision makers to liaise and collaborate with their peers, discuss organisational strategies for the future and establish meaningful working relationships with a dynamic selection of delegates, vendors and sponsors. Offering an alternative to the traditional conference format, the summits provide true innovation and value for money.
Drew Contessa, Summit Director at GDS International – the global business event company behind NGP US – says, "the theme of collaboration has always been the key element of the NGP Summit, and in today's uncertain economic climate, this theme has never been more relevant and essential in pushing the industry forward. Now more than ever, it is important for industry leaders to come together with the leading technology and service providers to discuss future opportunities as well as build upon existing relationships. We are proud to have created a forum for senior level executives to engage in interactive workshops, private one-on-one meetings and networking sessions with industry peers to procure and re-examine their future objectives."
