Events for the pharmaceutical industry

In the pharmaceutical industry, there are many different codes, regulations, and recommendations. This can make it difficult to determine which ones are truly relevant, where the differences lie, and how they should be interpreted. Through our years of experience in organizing events for and with the pharmaceutical industry, we have acquired extensive know-how and experience that we are now happy to pass on to our customers. For example, we are very familiar with:

  • PHARMIG Code of Conduct (VHC)
  • Medicines Act (AMG)
  • EFPIA Guidelines

Green Meetings

Conferences, meetings and conventions are a professional enrichment and a social communication platform for professional life. However, they often consume too many resources and cause emissions. Since we at COLUMBUS place great value on sustainability, we are not only a Travelife partner, but also a licensee of the Austrian Eco-Label for "Green Meetings and Events". This allows us to design your meeting as a certified "Green Meeting". Such an event is not only more sustainable, it also promotes a positive image among the population, guests and sponsors. Aspects that characterize a Green Meeting:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Waste avoidance
  • Environmentally friendly arrival and departure
  • Regional value creation
  • Social responsibility
