OUR STORY

The 19th Annual Market Access Summit is Canada’s largest event exclusively focussed on new developments in pharmaceutical market access and reimbursement. This year’s event is a 3-Day VIRTUAL offering. We are excited that the change in format gives us the opportunity to bring Market Access Summit to a broader audience, showcasing an interactive digital format.

We are also introducing a number of innovative online initiatives, for example, one-on-one meetings, small roundtable discussions, virtual exhibitions and most importantly, the return of our top most requested speakers and fresh case studies.

Strategy Institute has been in business for 25+ years, has produced at over 450 conferences and catered to more than 50,000 attendees. We act as an independent conference organizer, with an emphasis on high quality research and lead generation to meet the needs of our customers.

 

OUR COMMUNITY

Ever attend an event where you feel like you’re lost in the crowd? Not at the Market Access Summit.  We deliberately design the program to encourage you to meet with like-minded people – throughout the event. And with the added advantage of technology, you’ll do so at a number of small working groups, industry workshops, peer-led breakouts, roundtables and much more! You’ll come as an individual attendee – but you’ll leave as part of the Market Access Summit community!
