Partnerships and sponsorship

The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine (FPM) has opportunities for partner organisations to sponsor and support its work.

Medicines development isn’t possible without a workforce of trained pharmaceutical physicians, and FPM exists to ensure that these talented individuals have the competencies, skills and support required to deliver the best medical products for the benefit of patients and the public.

Pharmaceutical physicians work across the wide range of organisations within the field of health and medicines; pharmaceutical companies, research organisations including hospitals, academia, regulatory agencies and independent consultancy.

FPM sets and maintains the standards in the specialty of pharmaceutical medicine, through its portfolio of education, training, advocacy, and events programmes. It also delivers the Pharmaceutical Medicine Speciality Training (PMST) that is required by the General Medial Council (GMC) to become a registered pharmaceutical physician.

Organisations who share FPM’s vision of a world where effective medicines meet the needs of patients are invited to support these activities by applying for any of the opportunities listed below.

Themes:

FPM Annual Symposium 2020 will explore the theme of “Into the roaring 20s: Future trends in pharmaceutical medicine”. Within this theme, speakers and delegates will examine pharmaceutical physicians’ role in the global avalanche of innovative and collaborative science and medicine, their role in delivering medicines to those who need them, and their duty to keep patients and the public safe.

The main themes running through this event will be:

  • ‘Global health and access to medicines’,
  • ‘Rare diseases and advanced therapies’, and
  • ‘Health tech, medical devices and AI’.

The meeting will, inevitably, also discuss how the specialty and the industry has reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic and what lessons can be learnt.

How will pharmaceutical medicine develop over the next 10 years? Join us in November to find out and shape this future!

Delivering value for sponsors

FPM will provide a series of digital touch-points which will connect sponsors with FPM’s audience. These will not only be present during the event itself, but also throughout FPM’s pre- and post-event communications schedule – a potential audience of several thousand pharma professionals!

In addition to click-through links, sponsors will also increase their brand equity by being seen to support FPM’s major annual event. With its exciting programme and stellar lineup of speakers, FPM Annual Symposium is an extremely well respected and important event within the field of pharmaceutical medicine.


FPM is offering an unlimited number of basic sponsorship packages with digital-only brand placement.

There are also five lead sponsorship packages with more prominent digital visibility, and – most importantly! – a physical insert included in a mailed-out delegate pack.

Delegate packs?

Yes! FPM will mail packs to all delegates and speakers. These will include a programme, speaker bios, FPM goodies, and we have reserved space for inserts from up to five lead sponsors. We have worked extra hard on our delegate packs this year, and they are sure to be a talking point amongst all our attendees!

Who will you reach?

Our advertising will reach over 4,000 individuals. As the leading faculty for pharmaceutical physicians in the UK, our audience includes many senior figures, aspiring leaders and future stars of the pharmaceutical world.

FPM Annual Symposium will dominate FPM’s communications schedule for several weeks in the lead-up to the event. During this time regular communications will be issued to the below groups.

After the event FPM will continue to communicate outputs from the event itself – ensuring a ‘long tail’ of activity and sponsor visibility.  This may include video footage, blog articles and more.
