INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF CREATIVITY | 17-24 JUNE 2017

Welcome to Lions Health

17 - 18 June 2017

Two days of life-changing creativity

If you've got any questions about the programme, which pass is right for you or advice about practicalities such as accommodation bookings and travel arrangements don't hesitate to get in touch.

What is Lions Health

Bringing together professionals from across healthcare and pharma communications, Lions Health seeks to challenge norms and motivate change in these highly innovative yet fiercely regulated industries. From chief creative officers to digital medicine leaders, a host of experts examine the intersection of health, creativity and technology, and inspire the industry with fresh, forward-thinking ideas.
"The fact that you had creativity, inspiration, and other topics that are so fundamental and impact you in a very profound and meaningful way. I thought I had to be here."
Milind Kamkolkar, Chief Data Officer, Sanofi

The Festival

Life-changing creativity is explored across three stages and two days of thought-provoking sessions that examine key trends and issues in healthcare communications. Demos of world-changing tech and health-centric exhibitions allow people to get a feel for the industry’s future. Two specialist awards celebrate stand-out healthcare and pharma communications, and meeting, mingling and sharing ideas is made easy with a busy programme of networking events.
