World Congress announced today that it has partnered with Rosie's Place, the first women's shelter in the United States, for its 8th Annual Global Pharmaceutical and Medical Meetings Summittm, taking place February 10-12, 2020 at the Westin Boston Waterfront. Event attendees and partnering organizations will have an opportunity at next year's Summit to make donations to Rosie's Place to help fund their support, housing, and educational services for poor and homeless women.
"World Congress is a people-focused company, and for the first time ever, we are bringing the Global Pharmaceutical and Medical Meetings Summittm to Boston," said World Congress Chief Executive Officer, Kathy Coffey. "Boston is our home and we want to give back to a local organization. With more than 70% of our attendees being female, Rosie's Place's mission aligns perfectly with our community. What we have seen with the Global Pharmaceutical and Medical Meetings Summittm is that when people come together ? particularly meeting management professionals ? inspiration occurs."
Since 1974, Rosie's Place has had a positive impact on tens of thousands of women. Rosie's Place does not accept any city, state, or federal funding, making partnerships like this influential in their success.
The Global Pharmaceutical and Medical Meetings Summittm convenes senior meeting management professionals from the life sciences, medical, and health care industries for empowering ROI-driven conversations, peer-to-peer knowledge exchange, shared best practices, and networking. This year's Summit focuses on industry challenges, including sessions on fighting human trafficking, professional development, crisis management, and cultural differences in meeting planning. The Summit has a unique 1:1 ratio of meeting management professionals to solution providers. For more information and to explore the agenda, visit www.GlobalMedicalMeetings.com
