EMEA 2020 Annual Meeting

Conference Overview

MAPS is proud to be the global leader in connecting the Medical Affairs community and providing an environment designed for passionate professionals to collaborate with peers on best practices, to share experiences, and to attend informative sessions and discover innovative solutions to everyday challenges. Attendees leave our events energized and ready to implement new ideas that will positively impact their teams and their organizations.

This year we were so excited to bring a truly memorable experience to the Medical Affairs community in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region. Little did any of us know that we would have to grapple with a once in a lifetime global pandemic. COVID-19 has transformed the way we live and transformed many facets of our profession. While it has devastated everyone from those living in major cities to small rural townships, it has also shone a bright light on the important work each of you are doing to continue providing patient access to medicine.

Don't miss participating in the MAPS EMEA 2020 Annual Meeting this November 9-11 – for the first time, virtually! Read below for more details.

Thank you to our meeting Co-Chairs!
