PBC Group is a new business breathing fresh life into the clinical research conference and event industry

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: London, UK – 13th September 2022 – Today sees the launch of the Pharmaceutical Business Conference Group and its flagship portfolio of events serving the global clinical research industry: Clinical Outsourcing Group.

With events scheduled for 2023 in London, Boston, Milan, and San Francisco, the COG Series delivers for a worldwide community, bringing together 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.

Each event will feature multiple agenda streams, over two days, engaging a diversified audience to cover everything from outsourcing and operations, to technology and innovation, to supply and logistics.

“In recent years the clinical research conference space has become stale and organisers have forgotten what should be at the heart of every event: the attendees. I’m delighted to launch PBC Group today and to run events that are not concerned simply with cramming in as many expensive exhibitions stands and paid speaker spots as possible, but rather that are focused on delivering tangible benefits and returns for everyone who walks through the conference doors” said Alex O’Leary, Director, PBC Group.

The Covid-19 pandemic shifted every industry event online for close to two years, very much demonstrating that there simply is no substitute for face-to-face interaction. The COG Series represents a return to “conferences as they should be” and is perfectly placed to facilitate the crucial engagement between trial sponsors and solution providers that will lead to the next generation of medical treatments and innovations.

Alex O’Leary adds: “We want every event to be best-in-breed, as the place to come for the latest in learning, innovation, and networking for the clinical research community. This aim is underpinned by our company strapline: Driving Thought Leadership. Forging Connections. Delivering Results.”
