Issued: 09 April 2013
The 24th Nicholas Hall’s INSIGHT European OTC Conference taking place from the 17th to 19th of April 2013 at the Grange City Hotel in London. London enjoyed a buzz from an eventful 2012, with the capital taking centre stage at the 2012 Olympics. It is fitting that this year’s theme is ‘Raise Your Game, Expand Your Horizons’. The event will consist of an OTC Action Workshop, followed by a two-day conference focusing on marketing achievements and innovations in the OTC industry.

Three demographic groups: Men’s Health, Women’s Health and Children’s OTCs will be the subjects of the Action Workshop. These three target groups offer both opportunities and challenges to OTC marketers across the globe, and will be explored by the workshop moderators: Nicholas Hall, Chairman and CEO, in association with Josephine Van Vreeswijk, Client Services Director, and Professor Ian Banks, President of the European Men’s Health Forum; these workshops will be fully interactive allowing delegates to discuss and debate.

Guest speakers will give presentations with a focus on their respective fields, sharing experiences and expertise in the theme of the event; they will include:


  • Richard Learwood, Global Director Brand Strategy & Innovation at PGT Healthcare 
  • Stefano Galli, Global Business Partner at Nielsen 
  • James Hall, Chief Pharmacovigilance Officer at JensonR+
  • Andy Hayley, Managing Director at TBWA / Paling Walters

The conference will also play host to the Nicholas Hall Awards, a collection of three awards to celebrate product and marketing innovations and creativity in the OTC industry, in Europe. Last year’s winners included Bayer and Reckitt Benckiser.

With over 150 delegates attending, Nicholas Hall’s OTC Conference provides a great opportunity for players in consumer healthcare to meet and discuss, therefore introduced for the first time at this year’s conference will be two networking sessions. These sessions will enable attendees to make the most of having key industry personnel in one place.  

Nicholas Hall and the team look forward to welcoming attendees in London in two weeks.
