September 16, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Global pharmaceutical sales are expected to reach $1.1 trillion (717 billion pounds) in 2014 as growth in emerging markets helps offset the impact of generic competition for many of the world's top selling drugs. The 5 percent to 8 percent compound annual growth rate for prescription drugs expected over the next five years translates into sales growth of nearly $300 billion.

The annual North American pharmaceutical summit, PharmaForce 2010, will be held in one month's time in Princeton, NJ. Focusing on taking advantage of all sales growth opportunities cross-industry, PharmaForce is the platform for pharmaceutical and biopharmaceuticals executives to gather specific tactics that translate into increased profit.

Keynote speakers, networking with industry leaders, Interactive Roundtable discussions, and hands on learning experience all come together in a perfect storm. Joining your industry peers in Princeton October 12- 14 will provide you a jump start on developing Sales, Marketing, and Training initiatives for 2011."
