EphMRA Conference 2019


Welcome to the EphMRA Conference website for our 2019 conference taking place in Warsaw this June!

Registrations are still OPEN for the conference, so please use this link to register -

We are again using Event Masters to manage all the conference registrations, so if you registered last year, your details will have been saved, so you will just need to update them this year.  This will make registration much quicker for you.  If you you did not register last year you will need to complete the registration process in full.

The programme can be found on the Programme page of the website - click here to see the programme. 

In line with our strategic vision for EphMRA, our conference aims to inspire and empower members to influence decision through expert advice and insights to help drive business performance and gain competitive advantage.

We have been listening to our members from pharma and supplier companies since the conference in Basel and we have developed a programme which will provide you with some outstanding papers on a wide range of topics, from patient centricity to data analytics and innovative approaches. 

We are delighted to be welcoming Natalia Cohen to open the conference, who has an inspirational story to share about her experience of rowing across the Pacific Ocean! She will share her insights of working with a team and how resilience, determination, teamwork and leadership can overcome the most challenging of situations.  She will provide some practical tools for how her experience translates to business, so that you will be able to take some of her inspiration back to the office after the conference.

We are also giving an EphMRA welcome to Andrée Bates, CEO from Eularis, who will be sharing her expertise on how AI is impacting the pharma industry.  Following on from a highly successful session at recent EphMRA meeting in London, Andrée will be providing more insights for colleagues and her session will be followed by an interactive panel discussion on this highly important and relevant topic.

Throughout the conference, there will again be a mix of papers and discussion sessions, allowing you to both listen to cutting edge papers and also engage with colleagues in discussion about key topics of high relevance to our industry.  

There will be ample opportunity to network with colleagues during the welcome cocktail, evening event and during coffee and lunch breaks, so you will meet lots of new people as well as catch up with old friends and colleagues.

We look forward to seeing you in Warsaw in June!

If the industry is to grow, it is critical that we continue to identify insights from combining and integrating multiple methodologies and data sources. The EphMRA conference is a great forum to share, learn and debate on how we continue to do this.

Jill Wilson - Global Qualitative Leader, OSG

EphMRA, is it in your diary yet?  If you’re not sure, go for it.  It’s a great opportunity to be inspired by keynote speakers and see and hear engaging, thought provoking papers from across the industry.  What’s more, there is greater opportunity to network in Warsaw – the accommodation and conference is in the same venue.  And let’s not forget, the welcome reception and Wednesday evening event – time for a drink or two.  Don’t miss out!

Tracy Machado - Director, Phoenix Healthcare

I love coming to the yearly EphMRA conference. Such a great opportunity to network, share experiences and to learn from each other on subjects that are key to our industry both now and in the future - anything from Digital, BE, RWD, AL & ML through to GDPR. Also, it's great meeting up with friends old and new and having some time away from the office to truly reflect on how these learnings can be applied to my working role.

Carolyn Chamberlain - Business Unit Head, Assure BrandPanels

It is so important to stand back and think about what we are doing and the opportunities to do it better.  The EphMRA conference is a great opportunity to challenge yourself and learn from research colleagues - as well as being a lot of fun.

Mike Pepp - Account Director, Blueprint Partnership

It is the uncompromising commitment to quality that makes EphMRA what it is.

Erik Holzinger - Founder & Director, groupH

Still the best industry event to catch up with old friends and make new contacts!

Xierong Liu - Director, Elma Research
