OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION FROM CBI
Bringing Together Key Stakeholders in the Distribution of Specialty Products
CBI’s 4th Annual Forum on Strategic Distribution Planning for Specialty Products addresses the unique nature of specialty products that drives this growing market in the bio/pharmaceutical sector. However, what makes specialty products unique from mass marketed products also makes them more complex – especially from a commercialization and market access perspective.
In particular, specialty brand and product management teams must create an optimal distribution network that allows them to reach the market share of patients in need and provide them access, reimbursement and much-needed specialized services.
A Unique Focus for Specialty Product Distribution
- Explore the benefits and shortcomings of different channel options – Specialty pharmacies, specialty wholesale distributors, GPOs, hubs and more
- Ensure patient access through a carefully chosen distribution network
- Prepare a distribution plan that optimizes product launch
- Determine components to a distribution strategy that ensure success of REMS initiatives
- Realize commercial planning benefits through the analysis of specialty data
You will benefit from attending this event if you are an executive or senior-level professional at a pharmaceutical or a biotechnology company with specialty products and responsibilities or involvement in the following areas:
- Trade and Distribution
- Brand Management
- Commercial Operations
- National/Regional Accounts
- Managed Markets
- Payer Strategy
- Patient Compliance
