Partnership

The DTx summits are the premier events for senior executives from DTx companies, Pharma, Investors, HCPs and Payers.

DTx Europe 2019 is the fourth summit in the series, the first three were sell-outs. We are expecting 100 people at the summit in London, which is what our attendees and sponsors tell us is the optimum size.

We believe that getting the right mix of sponsors is critical for a successful summit for you and our attendees. The DTx summit provides a rare opportunity to showcase your business to a world class audience.

You will be impressed with our service and truthfulness. We will be honest with you throughout the process from deciding which option is right for you to delivery on-site.

With four companies confirmed pre-launch, sponsor and supporter spaces are selling fast. Get in touch today to learn more to avoid missing out!
