THOUGHT LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
Life Sciences Patent Network conference programmes are carefully researched over a number of months, to make sure that the information presented is as up-to-date as possible and covers the issues of critical and timely interest to the participants.
The speaker faculty is populated by individuals recommended to us as leaders in their field. Joining that expert speaker faculty offers you a superb platform from which to showcase the expertise of your organisation.
The delegates attending our conferences do not come together by chance, but rather, are encouraged to attend because they are valuable to our sponsors, with whom we work from the outset, to make sure that we are maximising their investment in the event.
Participating as a speaker or panellist at an LSPN event greatly enhances your status at the conference, enabling smoother introductions to key prospects and cementing your position in the minds of delegates and speakers as a key sector influencer – ultimately enabling you to win business.
