An idea was born

In March 2018, we had an idea. Let’s host a pharmaceutical conference - except this time, patients will be the designers, creators and hosts!

And it worked!

We ran two events in October 2018, one in London and one in Philadelphia. There were tears, standing ovations and most importantly a profound sense of a new partnership model in pharma.

Mar 12-14



What’s next?

Let’s not lose the momentum. The next im-patient conference will run during the eyeforpharma Barcelona conference in March 2019, where more than 1300 pharma execs are in attendance.

I want to be a part of it!

Glad to hear it. Unfortunately you’re slightly too late to join the committee for the latest iteration at Barcelona 2019. However, do not fear!

You can still get involved with the event in some manner, just get in touch with James at to find out what the options are.

Also – if you want to get in early for the next editions, send a message with your application and we’ll get things set-up.
