The summit, which will take place at Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, draws senior pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device and healthcare meeting executives for insightful education, networking and inspiration. The event producer is Massachusetts-based World Congress, which strives for a 50-50 ratio between meeting executives and solution providers.

Philadelphia has proven to be an incredible host city for the medical meetings summit . Greater Philadelphia Life Sciences Congress (PHLLife), a division of Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB), is title sponsor for the Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate (HMCC) course.

The HMCC course will be offered during the summit in Philadelphia. The intensive educational and training program provides health care meeting compliance stakeholders with the knowledge and experience they need to successfully navigate the increasingly complex pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device regulatory environment. Planners can get up to speed in just four hours.

The confirmed speakers include meeting and event executives, medical meeting planners, hospitality suppliers and representatives from med/pharma companies such as Novartis and Genentech. Among the medical meeting specialists who will be leading seminars is Agnes Canonica, CMP, CMM, HMCC, global director of strategic meeting management for AHM. Canonica led a Smart Meetings webinar earlier this year.

Michael Lyons, a professional speaker, actor and hospitality industry consultant, will be speaking about building your personal brand. Not only was Lyons on the November cover of Smart Meetings magazine, but he also served as host of Smart TV during IMEX America in October.

“I’ve attended the summit for the past three years and find it to be an excellent event, delivering everything I require to stay abreast of the changes in my profession,” says Marcie Pallante, CMP, contractor for Fete Event Group. “The faculty is extremely knowledgeable on the latest trends and regulations within the industry. This program is a valuable resource. The education content and networking opportunities are top notch.”
