Ashfield and IPCAA Study Reveals HCPs’ Thoughts On Virtual Congresses

October 9, 2020

Ashfield and IPCAA join forces to find out what HCPs really think about virtual medical congresses in new global study.

Ashfield Meetings & Events (part of UDG Healthcare PLC) and the International Pharmaceutical Congress Advisory Association (IPCAA) today released a study which reveals what healthcare professionals really think about virtual medical congresses.

Through a survey of more than 300 physicians from six countries (US and EU) and across 14 therapy areas, the global healthcare meetings specialist and the advisory association have gained detailed insights that are set to help medical societies, professional congress organizers (PCOs), and the industry consider how to shape virtual congresses of the future.

The study – the second part of which is planned for before the end of 2020 – looks at a variety of elements of the virtual congress, highlighting HCPs’ thoughts on accessibility and technology, how they viewed the online activities including industry symposia and poster sessions, and connecting with industry and peers.
