BCD Meetings & Events Simplifies the Complex for Life Sciences Customers

Network of global resources delivers end-to-end solutions specific to the life sciences vertical—via one partner

March 23, 2016 – Chicago – Life sciences companies interested in one partner to deliver unique, full-service meetings management consultation, design and fulfillment can do so with BCD Meetings & Events’ Life Sciences Center of Excellence (LSCOE).

By simplifying the process for life sciences customers, who now have the option to source their meetings requirements through one partner, BCD Meetings & Events (BCD M&E) has filled a gap in the complicated, compliance-driven market.

“Historically, life sciences companies have had to manage three or more suppliers to meet their complex and unique business needs,” said Mike Pennotti, VP, Account Management & Operations, LSCOE. “Our Life Sciences Center of Excellence gives them the option to simplify that process and work with one.”

BCD M&E provides the opportunity to single-source services for SMM, Events and HCP meetings while delivering full-service capabilities across solution design, technology, onsite execution, speaker bureau management, go-to-market strategies and more.

“We have strategically grown our network of global resources dedicated to delivering the full spectrum of life sciences’ meeting requirements,” said Pennotti. “We have acquired companies to fill gaps such as speaker bureau programs, developed our Smart Meeting technology platform to address critical needs such as TOV data capture and have designed SMM and high-end event solutions precisely for this market.”

The LSCOE’s fulfillment capabilities, operational processes, organizational structure and technology applications were developed specifically to meet the unique needs of the life sciences vertical—from SMM design to high-end event fulfillment to unique HCP and speaker needs. Headquartered in Raleigh, NC, BCD M&E’s LSCOE is collectively driven by talent, technology and fulfillment capabilities rooted in compliance – without leaving attendee experience behind.
