The 3rd OTCToolbox/PLG OTC Conference and Networking Event will take place at the Hilton London Tower Bridge, London, UK, on Thursday 1st & Friday 2nd March 2018.

Capitalising on Change Through OTC Innovation and Business Development is the theme of the 3rd OTCToolbox/PLG OTC Conference and Networking Event, which will feature a Keynote Presentation by Uta Kemmerich-Keil, President and Chief Executive Officer of Merck Consumer Health, as well as presentations by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare, Nelsons and Glenmark.

This international event is the only one to focus exclusively on business development and innovation in the consumer healthcare/OTC market. Jointly organised by the OTCToolbox website and the Pharmaceutical Licensing Group (PLG), the two-day conference features a programme of highly-respected speakers from the consumer healthcare/OTC industry.

Furthermore, the event provides a great environment for networking.

The 2nd OTCToolbox/PLG OTC Conference and Networking Event in March 2017 was attended by more than 170 senior executives from 21 countries, including Australia, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and the USA.

Following feedback from delegates attending the 2017 event, we have further enhanced the networking opportunities. We have invested in the Meeting Mojo online partnering system, which will enable you to contact other participants directly. You will be able to pre-arrange one-to-one meetings, create your own profile and organise/print your own diary schedule.
