About

Showcasing achievement and success in the UK and European healthcare, biotech, pharmaceutical and life sciences sectors

The European Mediscience Awards is now in its 20th year, having been held every year since inception in 2002*. The event is the largest annual gathering of private and publicly quoted healthcare, biotech and life sciences companies in Europe. Bringing together the best of European mediscience companies to celebrate achievement and recognise success, it is the must-attend event for anybody working in this sector. 

Each year sees the attendance of over 500 quoted and private UK and European life sciences companies and their corporate advisers, analysts, fund managers, commentators and peers. The event is sold out from one year to the next.

The European Mediscience Awards 2021 will take place on Tuesday 16 November at The Brewery, London EC1, subject to government guidelines.

*with the exception of 2020 when we were unable to hold a live event due to COVID-19, but instead held a successful digital campaign.

The event


Sponsorship

Sponsorship opportunities sometimes become available, including sponsorship of an individual award, sponsorship of the official drinks reception or sponsorship of the menu. Sponsorship opportunities are, by their very nature, limited. Costs and availability on request.


Hosting a table

Reservations are available for tables of ten people. Numbers are strictly limited and reservations are taken on a first come, first served basis.


Advertising

Advertising in the brochure is welcomed and enables your key messages to reach a highly targeted audience. The event brochure is available on the night and contains details of the names of all attendees, in alphabetical and table order. Thus it is widely used as a corporate finance reference guide for up to a year after the event.


Bespoke sponsorship opportunities

We offer a range of bespoke sponsorship packages, tailor made to suit your marketing objectives and budget. Further information on request.


COVID-19

We were unable to hold the European Mediscience Awards in 2020 due to the global pandemic, COVID-19. Instead, we conducted a digital campaign hosted on our social media channels. We saw great levels of engagement and reach, and the campaign was deemed a huge success. 

All being well, and subject to government guidelines, we hope to be able to meet in person this year at the European Mediscience Awards on Tuesday 16 November 2021.

Charity

The European Mediscience Awards 2021 is proud to announce its support of the charity Kidney Research UK 


Worldwide, around one in 10 people have chronic kidney disease, for which there is no cure. Here in the UK, 20 people develop kidney failure each day, and 64,000 are reliant on dialysis or a transplant to stay alive. Over the past decade some progress has been made in treating kidney disease, but not nearly enough, with successive generations experiencing the same life-limiting health problems and inadequate treatments. 

As the largest kidney research charity in the UK, nothing is going to stop us in our urgent mission to end kidney disease. We’re here to be heard, to make a difference, to change the future.
