About Social Media in the Pharmaceutical Industry

SMi Group are delighted to present the return of their 11th annual Social Media in the Pharmaceutical Industry conference to London on the 21st – 23rd January 2019.

Social media is the perfect channel for pharmaceutical companies to educate, market, listen and connect with customers, patients and physicians.

Hear from industry experts on how to leverage social media platforms by keeping the patient at the forefront and exploring the latest advances in digital application such as Artificial Intelligence, challenges and techniques in the field of ‘social pharma’.
