ESCP are focussed on forming strong partnerships with the healthcare, technology and medical device industry. Our aim is to explore the way we can work with our partners to enhance scientific education and to share best practice with our members and the wider clinical pharmacy community. The annual symposium is the ideal opportunity to meet with pharmacists from across Europe and other geographies to showcase your company’s products and services over the 3 days of the scientific program.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can work with partners to explore areas we can collaborate together to create a more engaging and educational programme that is mutually beneficial, whether this is supporting our educational workshops, setting up focus groups to discuss the a specific topic, lunch time satellite symposia, educational grants to support young ESCP to attend the symposium, or joining networking opportunities throughout the program.

Please contact the ESCP International Office to obtain a copy of our sponsorship brochure providing all the information you will require about the scientific program and the meeting venue. Our priority is to create a partnership that is mutually beneficial to our sponsors and the Clinical Pharmacy community. We welcome the opportunity to explore the best way we can work with you to achieve your business objectives. Our partnership will be happy to discuss how we curate a solution that works best for our sponsors in the short, medium & long term.
