There are endless rules when it comes to organising a pharmaceutical event, all aiming to follow the EFPIA codes of conduct, who vary in each European country.
It is important to bear in mind that science and, in this case, pharmaceutical related topics and talks are the main points of interest, not allowing any distractions or non-related activities call into question the good practices of the pharmaceutical industry, so finding the appropriate business partner is crucial – your chosen DMC or PCO should be aware of all rules and practices to apply.
