Overview and Agenda

The first Pharma Marketing Network Reception held in Princeton, NJ in April, 2004 brought together over 60 people and was a great success! Many attendees of that event were very pleased and expressed their desire to do it again. “Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for putting together Wednesday night’s event. I did enjoy myself and left feeling energized. Which, as I’m sure you can appreciate, is a huge positive for those of us whose small businesses can use everything they can get to maintain constant forward momentum.”
— Bob Busker
