The coronavirus pandemic has impacted us all and in ways that were impossible to predict just a few months ago. Across the healthcare sector we are seeing an unprecedented response in communication, collaboration, speed and agility, as we unite in a common purpose to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
No-one is clear when we will come out of the other side and what will be the longer-term impact on how we work and do business. And of course, the key question is how it will impact investments in the biotech & medtech sector .
The Optimum Strategic Communications Annual Healthcare Investor Conference in partnership with Dechert LLP will take place on Thursday 8th October 2020.
The conference now in its 12th year, features leading speakers from the healthcare and investment communities each providing insights on the latest trends, developments and impacts on the industry.
The audience consists of senior management from private and public companies across Europe’s healthcare and life-sciences sector, as well as a number of investors and analysts from the investment community.
