What to expect at the
New Product Planning Summit


The New Product Planning Summit is the leading conference for defining how the new product planning role and related functions make informed, value-based, data-driven decisions about products in the pipeline.

Life science industry professionals gather here each year to consider how and when to utilize various resources and ask the right questions to ensure commercial success. Now in its fifth year, the New Product Planning Summit has the largest and most diverse speaking faculty yet, allowing us to cover in-depth topics benefiting drug, biotech, and device manufacturers of all different sizes. Our new virtual structure allows you to submit questions to speakers during live Q&A, network with colleagues in structured zoom breakout rooms, and view sessions on-demand up to 6 months after.

Join us in February 2021 to become a part of this growing community of eager professionals who are navigating the New Product Planning space during these uncertain times.
