london is great


our inspiring conference venue in central london

Getting a great conferencing space is the first crucial step we need to take in making it one to remember. We are currently in negotiation with four inspiring conference venues in London. Stay tuned.

Deptford: The London high street voted one of the world's coolest

There is much more to see in London besides the TOP 10. Deptford High Street in the borough of Lewisham, south-east London, has been named one of the 33 coolest streets in the world. We will create small groups night before the conference day 1 and let’s have fun together!

Perfectly organized and excellent selection of speakers. Ideal event to know what colleagues from other Pharma companies work on in regards to PPM.

Senior R&D Project Excellence Manager

Boehringer Ingelhein

I’ve gained not only the hard skills but also soft skills: human, emotionally related, which I found very useful.

Vice President

Fresenius Kabi

Great meeting! Lots of ideas sharing across one industry. And we understand that our challenges are similar regardless of our specific project content.

Global Project Manager



Conferences can be super exhausting – trust us, we know - so we will have a chill-out zone with drinks and snacks ready for you. You can recharge yourself and your phone anytime you need.


We have scheduled more time for discussions and workshops than for presentations! That’s how we make sure your questions get answered.


You choose when you want to listen, work, eat, network, rest or discuss.


We are all about feeling comfortable and we believe in a good balance of fun and knowledge!
