Current Game Changers

Congress Vetting EUCOMED EFPIA

New EFPIA Code On Disclosure of Transfers

New EFPIA Code • Apply to interactions with Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) taking place within Europe • Changes are effective on 1 January 2014 or according to national implementation plans (no later than July 2014)

New EFPIA Code Article 9 INFORMATIONAL OR EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS AND ITEMS OF MEDICAL UTILITY New article that sets out requirements for the value and purpose of informational and educational materials and items of medical utility Examples • Only ‘inexpensive’ materials, e.g. no tablet to contain presentation, no branded materials without purpose of education • Memory stick with materials, a model ‘inexpensive’ brain etc. could still be acceptable. Article 10 EVENTS AND HOSPITALITY Article 17 PROHIBITION OF GIFTS Revised wording of companies’ possibilities to offer meals and beverages at events, and establishment of national monetary limits for the value of meals and beverages New article clarifying that no gifts or pecuniary advantage (in cash or benefit in kind) may be supplied, offered or promised to an HCP Examples • Clear guidance on country level of acceptable monetary limit for meals and beverages Examples •This includes brand reminders such as pens, binders, briefcases, bags etc. that could include product or company brand • Companies shall not provide any meals or beverages, unless, in each case, the value does not exceed the monetary threshold set by the relevant Member Association in its national code

Considerations for PCO’s and their Association Clients

Balancing Needs Association Company Speakers Speakers Delegates Delegates Members Staff

Likely Impact of HCP Payment Disclosure • Greater number of self funding delegates • Reduced delegate numbers? • Greater importance of selecting right destination: • Accessibility • Affordable travel and Accom • Registration and out of pocket costs etc

Likely Impact of Prohibition of Gifts • Will hit support of traditional sponsorship items • PCOs and associations – new creative ideas for sponsorship revenues • Need to ensure that sponsor achieves ROO

Smaller Exhibition Stands

Content is King • Top quality science • Education and development paramount • Engaging and varied learning formats • Latest cutting edge research • Key opinion leaders / renowned speakers • Accreditation / CPD • Enduring content with greater out reach • How will attendance improve delegates’ ability to treat patients?

The Role of the PCO? Advisor and guidance Solutions and outreach Reducing costs / New revenue streams

Recommendation to Stakeholders
