2nd Annual Pharmaceutical Risk-Sharing & Value-Based Pricing & Reimbursement Models

Monday, February 1st, 2010

Pharmaceutical Risk Sharing

There is clearly an increasing need for more innovative pricing and reimbursement agreements to help to balance the often conflicting objectives of pharmaceutical and medical technology manufacturers, payers, health technology assessors (HTA), physicians and patients. The industry faces a sustained increase in the cost of healthcare and an ever-increasing range of expensive drugs and technologies available as potential therapies.

Clearly, difficult choices need to be made by payers and HTAs about which products receive funding from increasingly restricted healthcare budgets, especially with often insufficient clinical and real-life evidence available. In terms of innovative agreements, more manufacturers, in more countries, are proposing risk-sharing and value-based schemes more often.

NextLevel Pharma has organized a unique meeting that will be focused purely on risk-sharing and value-based pricing schemes and will provide experts theories and practical case studies of successful models.

    Jaspowa & Fischerei & Off-Road 2009 in Vienna: The perfect expo hunting ground in Austria

    Friday, February 13th, 2009

    All the latest for hunters, anglers, off-road enthusiasts and nature lovers
    Hunting association anniversaries
    Varied programme of side events

    VIENNA The 2007 edition of the Jaspowa & Fishery & Off-Road underlined the status of the show as the leading event for the catchment areas of Vienna, Lower Austria, Styria, Burgenland and the entire neighbouring Danube region, emphasised Director Johann Jungreithmair, CEO of Reed Exhibitions Messe Wien. This hunting and angling show features an off-road drivers section and takes place once every two years. The next edition of the show is scheduled to take place on the 13th – 15th February 2009 at Messe Wien venue.

    Yet again the Jaspowa & Fishery & Off-Road 2009 will be here with all the latest products and trends developed by the exhibiting companies, and another broad-based selection of side events for hunters, anglers and off-road vehicle enthusiasts. The Lower Austrian and Burgenland hunting associations will both be celebrating 60 years of existence at the Jaspowa in 2009.

    Off-road test course

    Off-road enthusiasts will also be able to enjoy the special cross country course set up between the halls to test 4×4 vehicles and quad bikes; as well as numerous competitions organized to test driving skills. All the big 4×4 manufacturers will be there to introduce their very latest models.

    Three days packed with expo action

    In response to exhibitor demand we decided to concentrate the Jaspowa & Fischerei & Off-Road 2009 over a three day period, instead of the original four, announced Gernot Blaikner, Head of Group Exhibitions for the organisers, Reed Exhibitions Messe Wien. Taking place once every two years, the Jaspowa & Fishery & Off-Road in Vienna has continuously grown over the past few years. The increased presence and interest from the neighbouring Danube Basin regions is a further reason for optimism. 12% of the visitors registered at the previous show came from outside Austria; the bulk of them from Hungary, followed by the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Jaspowa & Fishery & Off-Road 2007 was attended by a total of 18,374 visitors. Around 200 exhibitors occupied two halls and a large outdoor area at Messe Wien.
