Jubilee euroPLX Meeting Attracted Opportunities From 36 Countries


Dielheim/Heidelberg, 14 November 2012. The 50th euroPLX Meeting which was held on 5 and 6 November 2012 in Sorrento, Italy, marks an important milestone for euroPLX, the global platform for partnering deals in the pharmaceutical industry. It made euroPLX the most often held partnering event in this industry.

With 150 attending delegates from 36 countries and five continents it is also one of the most international partnering conferences. For the first time, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ecuador, and Thailand were represented.

What is more important in the eyes of participants, however, is the high number of pre-scheduled appointments per company. euroPLX 50 Sorrento delivered an average of 23.6 pre-scheduled appointments per company and met 89.0% of all appointment requests, a benchmark for partnering conferences.

Says Dr. Norbert Rau, owner of RauCon business development, the organisers of euroPLX: "A conference's total number of scheduled one-on-one appointments is often bragged about, but entirely irrelevant for the individual participant. Only the number of appointments that have actually been scheduled for the individual participant counts. The more appointments for him or her, the larger the probability of landing a partnering deal. And euroPLX Meetings feature about two to three times more than mainstream partnering conferences."

Next year's euroPLX Meetings will be held in Limassol, Cyprus, on 4 and 5 March, in Munich, Germany, on 10 and 11 June, and in Barcelona, Spain, on 25 and 26 November, 2013.
