DECEMBER 02, 2019
This year saw two Knowledge Day events at the Steiermarkhof in Graz (5th November) and on the following day at the D3 Convention Center in Vienna, showing audiences how to exert ‘Impact. Always. Everywhere’ in their corporate behaviors.
PHOENIX instituted the Knowledge Day program in Austria several years ago as a means for forging new links between the pharmaceutical industry and pharmacists and as a means of rewarding and strengthening customer loyalty.
Last year’s events focused on ‘Boosting Sales´ but this year the focus shifted to ‘Professional Appearance’, with the help of external keynote speakers Monika Matschnig and Marc Gassert.
Ms. Matschnig and Mr Gassert conducted inspiring presentations at both the Vienna and Graz events, which also featured networking sessions for knowledge sharing between PHOENIX, its industry partners and pharmacy teams.
Both events were well attended, with some 120 professionals attending on each of the two days.
This kind of events show how it’s integrated All-in-One services bringing industry and the pharmacy team together can provide effective solutions for individual pharmacy needs.
“We organise Knowledge Days in close cooperation with our industry partners, who are given the opportunity to get in contact with the pharmacy teams, to present their products and to share information,” explained PHOENIX Austria’s Head of Marketing Walter Fortunat.
“As in the previous years, the feedback from all participants and our industry partners was very positive and the events will be repeated in 2020,” said Mr. Fortunat.
