Pharma CiMi.CON USA 2019: Beyond the hype

The launch of the leading European Pharma CiMi.CON conference to the USA  was unanimously characterized as a successful conference. More than 200 registered attendees gathered in Chicago to Pharma CiMi.CON USA and co-located cross-industry event CiMi.CON Evolution USA to shape the future of the Competitive Intelligence and Market Insights during 3 event days filled with case studies, World Cafés, Challenge Your Peers-discussions and networking sessions.

With keynotes on megatrends, predictive intelligence, intelligent delivery of the insights, as well as  the techniques and strategies to foresee the emerging trends in the markets and to shift the whole organization from reactive to proactive to remain competitive, one thing became clear: it is important to strengthen the importance of CI and MI within the organization and to continuously keep developing the methods to be able to provide more competitive advantage to the organization. The event showed how the leading experts within pharma, biomedicine and healthcare industries practice Competitive Intelligence and create Insights to cater to the needs of their organization. The majority of the case studies addressed the importance of smooth information flow within the organization and co-operation with the other departments.
