Making life sciences organizations better through IT innovation

The life sciences industry is experiencing change across the board, from patent expiry and generic competition, pricing pressures and more stringent regulation to emerging markets and increased M&A. Organizations are seeking new business models, which means capitalizing on emerging and evolving technologies to push for stronger sales and profitability, as well as better outcomes at lower cost. Moving forward, CIOs will lead the charge to making organizations more tightly connected, more secure and flexible, and overall better business drivers.

The CIO Life Sciences Summit brings together C-level executives, innovative solution providers and analyst thought leaders from the life sciences industry to discuss the critical technology issues impacting organizations. This exclusive event is the premier gathering for attending delegates to share their experiences and new ideas in a world-class business setting.

The dynamic event is packed with visionary Keynote Presentations, Thought Leadership workshops, CIO Case Studies, Analyst Q&As and numerous enjoyable and productive networking opportunities. One-on-one Executive Exchange meetings are held throughout the event, arranged to match attending delegates expressed concerns with appropriate solutions truly capable of changing business practices.

Our format encourages open dialogue to maximize the experience and what you get out of it. A strategic agenda features topics chosen by IT end users to ensure that conversations are focused on the most current and pressing issues. Here are a few examples of what delegates will be talking about this year:

  • Centralized Data Management: Making Something out of Everything
  • Changing Role of the CIO
  • Leveraging Social Media: Improve Research, Customer Service
  • Patent Loss and Shrinking Pipelines

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to get life sciences issues out on the table, make your voice heard and collaborate with peers on real solutions for your organization.

I've already had follow up discussions with a couple of the vendors I met and I see promise for future business. The meetings were the perfect length of time and I learned a lot about some vendors I thought I knew. I was impressed by the event, it was very well organized and executed.


A very impressive event, the whole thing was first class. Assembling senior leadership is not an easy task. Kudos to your organization on such a successful event and my sincerest thanks for allowing me to be a part of it!

Coming to this conference, I was a little dubious. However this has turned out to be the highlight of the year (in events).
