The Pharmaceutical Licensing Group (PLG) and OTCToolbox are proud to announce details of their new conference and networking event. This international event is the first to focus exclusively on business development and innovation in the consumer healthcare/OTC market, and it comes at a time of unprecedented change for the industry. Pharmaceutical companies are consolidating or divesting their consumer healthcare/OTC businesses, and the sector is attracting interest from new players, especially generics companies. Acquisitions and licensing deals of all sizes are at an all time high.

Taking place in the heart of London and split over two days, this international event will feature a programme of highly-respected speakers from the consumer healthcare/OTC industry plus a networking dinner for building contacts.

The full programme is available to download and can be seen below, with full details of the exciting speakers available HERE
