We know
life sciences

We support customers across the healthcare spectrum through our Life Sciences Center of Excellence.

As the leading life sciences travel management and meetings company, we service over 100 organizations in this sector across travel, meetings and consulting, including 90% of the top 20 pharmas in the world.

Within our companies, we support customers across the healthcare spectrum from pharmaceuticals to medical device companies, biotechs, hospital systems, CROs, insurance and beyond. We understand how a positive travel and meetings experience can be a reputational differentiator for a healthcare professional going to an advisory board, a colleague travelling to a congress, or a patient participating in a clinical trial, and we are the only agency that can provide you with a fully customized and progressive, compliant, globally integrated solution across travel, meetings and consultancy through our Life Sciences Center of Excellence.

The power of one

We know that life sciences need more than a fulfillment supplier. You need a partner who speaks your language: who understands your industry, your compliance requirements, your challenges, your peers and your future. 

Our vast, global experience across the corporate, HCP and patient landscape allows us to bring new energy, strategy and solutions to your travel and meetings program.

Like you, we understand how critical the innovative core is to deliver the right, cost-efficient solutions to those in need.

Life Sciences Center of Excellence

With unique drivers including patient-centricity, regulatory and compliance requirements, we recognize that life sciences cannot be managed as ‘typical’ corporate programs. Given our footprint, expertise and client base, we’ve developed a Life Sciences Center of Excellence that turns our insights into optimization.

Our clients benefit from our rich experience and dedicated expertise in this vertical through best practices, benchmarking and resource intelligence. Life sciences organizations need a different kind of support from program design to technology, traveler experience to consultation. That’s why BCD is working across our organization to provide cohesion of strategy, best practices and consultation to our customers.

Our expanded service offerings, including patient travel, break free from traditional models to further enhance travel programs, leverage cost and improve experience. Our regular connectivity, customer surveys, benchmarking and external validation allow us to deliver to you our learnings from managing more than 100 customers across 40+ therapeutic areas.

Going beyond traditional travel and
meetings management

As a result of more than 20+ years of experience servicing this segment, we intimately understand, and can deliver on, your unique drivers. Our customers expect delivery beyond fulfillment and regard us as strategic, value-creating partners.

We appreciate that no two programs are the same which is why our key benefits and features are entirely customizable to your needs and address both your small and larger challenges.
