Reimagining the Meeting Experience

Pharma Forum is the largest, most influential annual forum dedicated to uniting life sciences meeting and event professionals to navigate the future of medical meetings and serves as the ideal platform to address compliance implications for virtual interactions, the need for flexibility in contracting and re-entry strategies for face-to-face live and hybrid events.


To best meet the needs of both traveling and stay-at-home audiences, Pharma Forum 2021 will be a hybrid event, combining both in-person and digital experiences. Please take note of our onsite health & safety protocols for the in-person event.

What to Expect for Fall 2021

To ensure the health and safety of our attendees, and in accordance to our Informa AllSecure Commitments and Standards, Pharma Forum Fall will take place as a hybrid event, and the in-person portion, taking place September 21-22, 2021 in Boston, MA, will be held at a reduced capacity.

We understand many companies still have travel bans in place and there are varying levels of comfort when it comes to traveling. This is why we're offering an All Access Pass and a Virtual-Only Pass.

Both registration options are complimentary through Friday, August 6, 2021 for Corporate, Third-Party and Association Planners who commit to a minimum of 8 appointments.
