Driving Thought Leadership.
Forging Connections. Delivering Results.

At Pharmaceutical Business Conference Group, we believe in conferences as they should be: with attendees at their heart. More than two and a half decade’s experience in developing, launching, and running events across the clinical research space has shown us what makes a great event (and what makes a bad one!) and we are committed to delivering value for every person who walks through the door.

The Clinical Outsourcing Group (COG) event series delivers engaged audiences of biopharma trial sponsors, attracted by well-researched and highly current agendas, presented by an exciting range of large and small biopharma, regulator, academic, and solution provider speakers. 


Across multiple agenda streams, over two days, and under one roof, COG brings together a diversified audience to cover everything from outsourcing and operations, to technology and innovation, to supply and logistics. Alongside the content core of each event sits a commitment to audience ratio; balancing solution and service provider numbers to ensure both vendors and delegates are able to achieve their on-site objectives.

COG also represents an active and interesting online discussion community, providing a platform for community engagement between events that is guided by our expert advisory panel as well as speakers from across the annual programme.

Our commitment

to audience ratio

When the scales of buyers and suppliers are unbalanced, events are poorer for everyone. At PBC Group we aim to deliver a better than 2:1 ratio between trial sponsor and solution provider attendees at every conference.

The power of


There is no substitute for in-person networking and engagement. All of PBC Group’s events include drinks receptions to relax after busy conference days, with access included with all levels of attendance.

Agendas that deliver for everyone

Event agendas should deliver a range of content that adds value for all attendees. As part of PBC Group’s mission to drive thought-leadership, we’ll never have back-to-back solution provider speakers on our agendas.
