Comparing Product Launch in Different Industries: A Panel Discussion
PDMA St. Louis | September 13, 2022
A product launch is a product launch, right? In some ways, maybe. The lines between industries are blurring now more than ever, and in a market squeezed by supply chain challenges and consumer fear, you need to get it right. Join us for a panel discussion comparing product launch in three different industries: Medical Devices, Pharmaceuticals, and Consumer Packaged Goods. In addition to differences, we will also highlight commonalities and how to leverage them across industries, potential pitfalls to overcome, and the ways technology is influencing product development and launch. In this interactive session, you can help shape the discussion by participating in a survey that will inform the key topics.
- How do you shape your product development efforts to reflect how technology is changing products across industries.
- Understand commonalities and differences of product launches across industries
- Explore how to shape product development efforts by applying new technology tools
